Popped in for a takeaway, had never visited this chippy before son thought we'd try it out. We got a Fish supper & a Sausage Supper, the fish was made fresh to order and the sausage was sitting in the hot box. It wasn't as big as other fish suppers in the area but it did taste nice. The sausage... More

My family visited here twice while on holiday, as a treat. Its an amazing little place and although its slightly more expensive than some fish shops, the taste and flavour is well worth it!

The Chip Barn is a traditional fish and chip shop with a sit in area for about 15 people. Its style harks back to the 1960's but the food is what you expect though recently the range has been improved a bit. If your looking for a traditional fish tea with bread and a hot mug of tea this is... More

Not the best Chippy in the world but certainly not the worst that I've visited. the food was probably above average but the staff were quite disinterested the couple of times that I went in so I used an alternative after that.

Whenever our family come through from Glasgow we go to The Chip Barn and have Luigi cook the dinner for them all. ;-) Great food and very reasonably priced. Friendly staff, especially Luigi who always makes me laugh!

Popped in whilst travelling home, was starving, so anything would do. My first impression was it was a grubby wee place ( why did I not listen to myself) Ordered a fish supper, which was suspiciously cheap, staff were to say the least, odd. Got my order, took it home, tried one chip, it was awful, tasted stale, and burned.... More
