Visited here whilst staying in the area on holiday. What a great place we just turned up after our day out, we were told there was a bit of a wait due to a lot of online orders which wasnt a problem. All food was...cooked to order we had 2 large cod 2 large chips and 2 minted mushy peas. Portion sizes are huge. Cooked to perfection we thoroughly enjoyed it. Pity we hadn't found this place earlier I,d definitely recommend it.More

The fish and chips are cooked in beef dripping and taste fantastic. Portion sizes are good and there is lots of choice.

We were on holiday and fancied fish and chips, friends who live local recommended Three Cottages to us. We ordered via their website which was very comprehensive as that is how they have been operating during Covid. The only downside is you have to register...with them as you cannot check out as a guest. You book a time for collection and I ordered a large cod, medium cod, large chips, a pickled gherkin and 5 sachets of tartare sausage. We made our way to the restaurant and as I got out my car my name was called. All the food was in neat boxes and smelt lovely as we drove home in the car. We unwrapped the food and first thoughts were it looked (and smelt superb). Fish batter and chips were nice and brown, all too often chips are white or yellow in colour. Also the chips size was just right, not over large or super thin. Tasting the food was another great experience, the chips were soft and tasted lovely, so nice that I didn’t want to taint them with vinegar. They had a natural sweetness to them. The fish batter was crispy and not overly greasy, and the fish was flaky and moist. The gherkin was a good size and the only thing that let the meal down was the tartare sauce. I ordered. 5 sachets and after tasting the first we left and threw away the rest, it’s poor quality and not in keeping with the food quality. I hope the6 change their supplier. We will definitely revisit when we are up here again.More

I tried in vain to contact this fish and chip restaurant yesterday to pre order some gluten free fish as it appears to be the only plaice in the area which does it. From 12 until 1.30 the phone went straight to answer phone and...the message inbox full was heard. Tried again at 4.30 and same. As orders had to be placed ahead of pickup I abandoned the idea and went to Waitrose and bought fresh fish to cook instead. A pity but there it isMore

We called through a big order about half hour before they shut and they had no problem accommodating us. We had one gluten free order which can be hard to come by at a chip shop but was no problem for them. The food was...amazing and portions also amazing. Best chips I’ve ever hadMore

its the best place for fish and chips in Norfolk, if not the country. its is also great because they do gluten free, which is great that I'm intolerant. never had a bad meal from three cottages. id recommend this place to anyone.

While on holiday in North Walsham we came across this little gem. The chips were amazing and the foot long battered sausage was lovely. Nice light but crispy batter. Would happily drive up again just to eat here.

Meeting up with friends I was really worried that I was going to have to oven bake a shop bought pizza whilst they munched on takeaway. But then thanks to my coeliac norfolk Facebook group this chip shop came recommended. The lady I spoke to...was so polite, accommodating, friendly and cheery and happily booked my meal in, along with my friends meals last minute. For the first time in 8 years I had battered cod and sausage with my chips and the whole lot was absolutely delicious! Seperate fryer and utensils used so i didnt get ill at all. So so grateful for this! Would highly recommended and will definitely return. Thanks so much for making my day 😊More

Only pre-order available. Worked very well. Fresh and non-greasy - very tasty! Reasonably priced - would not hesitate to go again when in the area!!
