We visited Bewdley today and found this gem of a fish restaurant over looking riverside. Spotlessly clean, charming young staff and fabulous fish and chips in a beautiful setting. What more could you ask for after a lovely walk. We will definitely visit again. Many thanks

We visit Merchants whenever we visit Bewdley as they serve the best chips around. My partner and I are both Vegetarian so veggie friendly chips are hard to come by. They fry their chips in a desperate fryer to the fish and meat so no cross contamination etc. The chips are always fresh and the staff are very helpful. We... More

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.
