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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Definitely up there among the best of fish and chip shops. Tables clean and well set, excellent service and wonderful fish and chips. Too often seaside fish and chip shops fall short on quality but not so this restaurant. A generous tasty piece of fish...encased in a crisp batter along with lovely chips and a big mug of tea. We shall definitely return when next in Clacton.More

I have not been to Geo's for a long time. But I would rate it as excellent. One of only a couple of "proper" seaside fish and chip shops in Clacton. Good produce (including proper chips) cooked to order in hot fresh oil. Really good....Mike.More

Lovely lunch with friends on good Friday. Everything about our dinner was lovely. Batter was perfect, fish was fresh and tasty and chips were divine. None of it was greasy. It was just perfect. Condiments supplied upon request. They even have a licensed bar!. Toilets...looked like they have been recently refurbished as they were so clean!! They even have a disabled toilet which is rare. Staff were kind and very attentive and always checking on us to make sure everything was OK. Just perfectMore

Holidaying in Clacton and decided to try Geo's for fish and chips. We sat in the restaurant which was quiet on a Monday evening. Everything was excellent. Food was fresh, hot and delicious. As good as the Padstein/Whitby eateries. Recommend it.

We ate in and waited about 15 minutes for our large cod and chips, bread and butter and teas. It was worth the wait, for the freshly fried fish and chips, which were so tasty and crispy. I recommend this place to everyone for the...best in fish and chips. Nice atmosphere and fast friendly service.More

Slim pickings for quality fish and chips in Clacton I'm afraid. We hunted this one down based on reviews and sadly it was average.

Ordered a regular portion of chips to takeaway not small. When opened very small portion, not worth £3.20. Won't be returning!
