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.

Staying in the area and fancied a wee chippy. Ordered two haddock suppers. £9.15 each. Fish cooked to order, few people standing about waiting on their orders. 10 mins wait then we got ours...back to the digs. Fish was stunning, so fresh and with a...crispy batter. Chips were good too and a wee tub of tartar sauce as well. Delish.....More

This was my least favorite fish and chip shop in Scotland. I was there for 2 weeks, in Edinburgh and then Inverness, taking tours almost daily. The fish was very greasy, and fried in beef fat - which is not great if you don't eat...beef and that's why you went to a fish shop. The chips were very average.More

Normally good but disappointing today. Food cold, probably because they realised they got the order wrong and had to take the bits apart to amend it.

We went here. First tried to ring an order through but the answerphone said you can't! So went in and I've never known anything like it. Haddock only and I asked if I wanted a supper ?? I asked what it was and it comes...with chips! I've also never known a fish shop to give you 2 fishcakes when u order a "single " even the pineapple rings came as a pair. Peas were dry. The girl that served us was helpful. If you have a menu leaflet it well may be out of date. As they didn't offer everything on the menu. Won't go again as the area has plenty of places to eat. Also we live 15 hours away.More

Very disappointed with this place. Don’t cater for a range of dietary requirements. Fry in beef dripping and could provide anything for lactose intolerant person in our group. Owner was rude and arrogant when we asked him. Am busy, don’t need to was his response!

Absolutely delicious fish and chips from this place. On our first visit, definitely won't be the last. Lovely quality fish and with a portion of tasty tartar sauce included. Just lovely.

Placed and paid for order once we’d worked out the system. A gentleman returned as his order was incomplete, staff defensive and the man frying responded sarcastically to him. I didn’t notice juice but saw someone get cans with their order. When my number was...called I asked if I could get a couple of cans. Response was you have to queue again. I’ll get elsewhere not doing that again. Went to Speybay to eat and intended going for a work. My son burst into laughter when he noticed my gluten free fish was a mush of naked fish. There was no salt and vinegar either. I don’t think I have ever ordered in a chip shop and not been asked this. I think the chips would actually have been nice with some salt. Very disappointed and won’t bother returning.More

We have always enjoyed to Fochabers chip shop and cannot recommended it enough. The fish supper in particular is not only shockingly good but it also comes as a good sized portion! If you are passing through make sure to stop for a chippy.

25 min wait for a bag of grossly overpriced chips is ridiculous. Dry and off taste when you do eventually get to eat them. Disappointing! Still no dine in either… shame that this place has really went downhill.

Turned up today after completing the SPeyside Way over the last 10 days for a celebratory fish and chip supper. No tables, no chairs, no dine-in. Obviously not 'living with Covid' in Fochabers!

Food was distinctly below para, chips were very dry and mozeralla sticks greasy - 2 drunks very loud and smelling of booze, not wearing masks and had no idea about personal space let alone social distancing. Won't be visiting again. Very slow service as food...cooked to order which should have meant it would be better than it was!More

Was given wrong order by staff. When returned (from several miles away at my cost and time )and then drove back and informed staff, the owner became angry and confrontational. Plenty of other good Fish n Chip shops in the area. Do yourself a favour...and go to one of them. They will be happy with you business and give you good customer service.More
