This is definitely the best fish and chip restaurant in the Southend-on-Sea area. It is a long-established business. Takeaway or eat-in; you can’t go wrong. The fryers are experts, the fish is just perfect, and the chips are spot-on. It’s great value, and a local...More

I had a wonderful take away this evening. Having had a negative experience at a nearby Fish n Chip place recently, I was a bit hesitant. However, I was very happily surprised and please that OLDHAM is AWESOME. Great fast and friendly service even though...More

Lovely family meal as part of a day trip to the Essex coast. Children’s meals were excellent value and large portions. Fish was fresh and well cooked. Restaurant is not fancy in any way but clean and with good service.

The food, service and restaurant is a very high standard. The menu is extensive. The skate knobs were a mystery but delicious.

Lovely staff .. Fresh fish and good place in Southend to have F&C. Shame the fish is imported and not local as they say on the menu. But lovely and tender none the less.

We enjoy getting Fish & Chips from Oldham's. They have been in business for over 50 years and the food os consistently good. You can even eat in. Great place to go before visiting the Palace Theatre.

The cod and chips are quite delightful. They serve a side salad. This plaice can’t be battered. Or should that be this place can’t be bettered? Either way, do enjoy. There are a couple of tables outside but the restaurant is rather smart.

You may need to ring them in advance. The upstairs room can be booked for private functions but I am not sure about bookings for couples.
