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.

The castle fish bar serves the best fish and chips in Kent. I have yet to find a better fish takeaway, it is always great and cooked just right.

Decided to have fish & chips for the last night of our holiday. The Castle Fish Bar came highly rated and it didn't disappoint. I think these may have been the best fish & chips I've ever had. Not being a big fish lover I...still plumped for the fish - excellent choice. The cod was fresh and tasty and the batter, as well as, the chips were free of grease and were delightful. Service was also very friendly. So if you're in this part of Kent make a heading for the Castle Fish Bar and reel in some wonderful nosh!More

Chips good. Cod awful. The chips I can't complain about. They were fresh and hot. They were perfectly cooked and took a while for them to start to cool down. But the cod was awful. It was the most chewiest fish ever. It was cold...and a little bit over cooked. The batter was a bit soggy. If you are going to go there avoid the cod.More

Probably the worst piece of cod I have had the misfortune to pay for, even my dog refused to eat it! It was thin and very cold in comparison to the chips which arrived home piping hot. I would assume it was left overs from...the lunch time service. The picture I have uploaded is a mid section piece just to give some idea. Wont be going back. Even if you do see the fish before you buy it it might just be all batter like mine!More

Went here because our usual chippy was closed. We had large cod, cod roe, chips and curry sauce. Everything was cooked really well and our plates were empty at the end. Friendly service and clean and tidy shop. Cannot recommend it enough - we’ll be...back.More

Really efficient service, friendly staff and a great selection on the menu. The chips were fab and the fish had lovely crispy batter that was fresh and tasty. Best fish and chips I've had in a long time.

My wife has the chicken burger and chips and i had battered sausage and chips. We went just as they opened at 12. The food was lovely and hot, chips were crisp but not frazzled. My wife said it's the best chickenburger she's had. The...battered sausage was tasty. The staff here are friendly and they take card payments. 10/10 from us. We always get a good meal here.More

We don’t get fish and chips very often, I have to have chicken as not many places do gluten-free, and always dubious as I am a coeliac, but my half a chicken was fantastic, not dry at all and my chips yummy, my husband enjoyed...his cod! Not to much batter, very friendly great service, after a disappointing trip to Folkestone for a COVID jab that never happened, queue far to long, couldn’t stand that long, but lovely food for the end of a disappointed evening, will definitely use again.More

The shop is always spotlessly clean. Staff are friendly, Michelle serving and John frying.I have tried scampi, haddock, cod, cheese burgers, battered sausages, pies and of course chips. Food always great. I think that this is the best fish & chip shop in Deal with...out a doubt. Very organised for phone orders during the coronavirus pandemic.More

I always order Haddock and chips because it is always excellent. The fish is fresh, and the chips aren't greasy. I'll have to try some other items from the menu, but I think the fish will be hard to beat. Well recommended.

Visiting the area and had urgent need for fish and chips after a long day and found this place on tripadvisor. Seemed popular and busy on a friday night. The Fish in batter was good and the best part of the meal, chips were ok...(slightly undercooked) but the battered sausages left a lot to be desired, the main point of which was that they weren't hot, in fact almost cold, slightly soggy and stale. Maybe they need to improve how/where they store them once cooked.More

Although they are mostly cooked separately, it is not possible to always guarantee this, as at busy times food items may be cooked in the same oil.
