Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Arrived and there was a few people waiting outside, so thought it was a good sign as it appeared popular with the locals. I think most were waiting outside as the shop was full of smoke as the extraction doesn't appear to be working. Unfortunately...we waited 55 minutes for 2 fish suppers and a bag of chips, others were waiting for similar times. The food came and the portion sizes were good, the medium box of chips were huge. The chips however were a bit on the hard side, one of the fish suppers had two fish and the other only one fish for some reason and all were a bit too greasy. Overall the food was average, and at 55 minutes, not worth the wait unfortunately.More

Went to the Castletown Chip Shop as it was near where we were staying. There were quite a few people waiting, so we thought it might be good. They ran out of fries, so the fish sat on the shelf until the fries were cooked....The fries were not crispy and should have been cooked longer. They put the vinegar and salt on the fish. So, by the time we were ready to eat them, they were soggy and greasy. It was about an hour until closing time, and it seemed like they should have changed the oil, but didn't bother because of the time. We went to Thurso for the rest of our meals.More

We decided to have sausages & chips for our tea whilst doing the NC500, the selection of food was amazing & the staff were happy to explain to us what was on offer. We both chose sausages & chips. The staff were happy listening to...where we are travelling to next. The food was very tasty & plentiful.More

Great pie, chips and peas, and, as of 1 September, open 4-7.30 Thursday till Saturday. Much better than the chippy we tried in Thurso 2 nights ago!

We were staying nearby and this chippy was recommended. Very very disappointed with the choice offered, nothing veggie except chips, cheese & coleslaw or any variation. I just had chips, my husband had fish, chips and mushy peas. The chips were pale and not very...appealing, they had virtually no taste, if it wasn't for the salt & vinegar they would have been even worse. The fish batter was a strange dayglo orange colour and very greasy, and the mushy peas were more mush than pea, liquid and tasteless. Would definitely not return or recommend.More

Been to the chip shop in Castletown a few times. The quality seems to vary. Some days you will get delicious fish and chips and on other days not so good. Problem is, standards are so varied that I'm not prepared to drive out and...take the chance, would rather go to a local chippy in Thurso where quality is more guaranteed.More

The shop was conveniently located for our B&B. We didn't enjoy the chips as they were dry. The batter on the sausages was not crispy and very stodgy.

Staying near by and decided we wanted fish and chips on our last night. Were not disappointed! Huge Haddock freshly cooked in front of us with a mountain of freshly cut chips and mushy peas. Excellent food (was clearly busy with locals which is always...a good sign) and the staff were super friendly and polite. Would highly recommend and will defo be back next time we are in the area!More

We ordered 2 large portions of chips and we got one portion that was smaller than a small. We ordered 2 battered sausages and got 2 tiny, soggy, extremely greasy things called red pudding, which was spicy and not very nice and it was expensive....The people in the shop seemed to care more about the locals and were not that friendly. The chips had Tom much vinegar and not enough salt and were soggy and all stuck together.More
