We were in Bewdley for the day, nice little place and my Sister insisted that we go to Merchants for our lunch. There were 4 of us and seats in the small restaurant part of the chippy were hard to come by. We eventually got a table and 3 of us had the large Cod and chips[7GBP] and one had... More

Nothing better than first fish and chips of the day. We had a takeaway, a box of haddock and chips. 12 noon on a Sunday in January, sitting by the river Severn eating freshly cooked fish and chips. Fabulous!

Staff very helpfull and friendly, have brought a variety of food from here and always enjoyed it. There are seats inside or you can take away. They also have a resturant next door. Lovely location to sit by the river eating your chips.

Clean establishment selling a British favourite, Good old fish and chips. Well cooked and good portions. Polite staff too. Complimented a day out on the Severn Valley Railway.

Not been here for years but after a very cold stroll around Bewdley we visited Merchants as the thoughts of a warming meal and drink was overwhelming. It was a fairly simple but adequate menu. The fish (Haddock & Cod) was cooked to perfection, light batter, plenty of chips with a generous portion of mushy peas, what else, all washed... More

Good quality food, and good service from a friendly waitress. Not luxurious, but warm and clean. Perfectly acceptable - just a shame it's not licenced.

We travel from just outside ludlow to bewdley for the best fish and chips. We go quite regularly as we havent found any where as good. They have your typical menu but also do oap nights and boxed meals. The large fish is beautiful, fluffy and almost melts in the mouth. The batter is dry, not oily or greasy! Grab... More
