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.

We went in here on a Saturday afternoon as we hadn’t had anything to eat all day and were famished!, I ordered a double cheese burger with chips and garlic mayonnaise and my husband ordered regular cod and chips OMG Amazing, fabulous , the cheese burger was delicious and I ate it all 😍my husband said the cod was amazing as were the chips. The mayonnaise is made fresh on the premises and was delicious. The staff are lovely and friendly I love this place!

The staff here are lovely and really welcoming. The food potions are huge regular chips could feed two adults and for really decent prices. They also accommodate to all allergens and food diet needs so everyone can eat there with many option of food too. I would love to return and recommend this fish and chip shop to anyone visiting Newport

Oh my god... amazing food and just so delicious! Don’t usually do fish and chips but this was just so nice. The chips were perfect and tasted like nothing we have had before and we had calamari too which was cooked to perfection. Did not expect it to be so good. Will be going back for another treat soon!!! Service was lovely & friendly too! Thank you

We turned up on a Sunday evening and ordered the family meal with a couple of extra sausages, pretty decent value. We were told it was going to be a 20 minute wait. Not a problem and we waited outside until called. This wait turned into 45 minutes however and people who arrived in the queue and ordered after us got their food before we did. Didn’t make sense when we didn’t order anything elaborate. The food when we got it was really decent quality and arguably worth the wait, but the order management was really poor and that’s why we have only given 3 stars.

We looked forward to our fish and chips, having been here before and knowing they were good. How disappointed we were this time! We ordered two portions of fish and chips and took these away to eat elsewhere. We were surprised to see they were wrapped in 3 separate packages, two with the chips in and one with the fish in. We reassembled them, but were shocked to see the size of the fish, they were tiny, smaller than a children's portion! The chip portion was huge, but what a waste as far too many. The fish was greasy and the batter stuck to the paper, the actual fish was nice and white, but gone in a few mouthfuls. Chips are cheap and bulking the meal out this way is not a wise move. If we were still in the area we would have taken them back, but it was too late. Will not go back.

Sorry to hear that you are not happy about the meal you ordered yesterday. We offer three sizes of fish medium , large and mini cod. You didn't put which size of the fish was in concern , if you ordered family meal deal you will be served 2 mini cods and 2 large chips .. That would explain the size of the fish. In case you ordered medium cod and the size of cod were small than probably you were given the wrong size of the fish.. Please call us on 01983 522316 so that we can resole the issue... Thank you for your custom Meli

Visited this Chippy having looked at the reviews, but what a huge disappointment... There was a queue outside, therefore you’d think it was going to be decent food. They didn’t have a small fish option, we now know why... the medium fish was smaller than a small cod in other fish and chip places I’ve frequented. The long queue outside was due to the fact that they were taking loads of online orders and it appeared that these took priority. It was almost two hours before we got our meal and then it was greasy, the batter wasn’t crispy and didn’t have the salt and vinegar we’d requested on any of the fish and chips. Instead of the medium cod we got a tiny piece of cod which was smaller than a small cod you get in similar establishments. A huge let down. Avoid this place...

Ordered cod & chips twice, curry sauce, mushy peas, battered mushrooms & separate portion of chips. Advised the wait was at least 20 minutes which I thought wasn’t unreasonable however, enquiring after 35 minutes we finally got our order two minutes short of an hour. Hardly a complicated order, staff appeared overwhelmed & disorganised & were paying more attention to the iPad obviously app & go eat orders. Such a shame after many years of a fabulous service & food.

So sorry about your experience on Thursday . We are operating with 3 people on the counter a fryer and one person back doing the grill orders. Our menu stayed the same during corona 19 which mean is not limited to a few things and we are doing telephone order , people popping in for collection or to to do the food order and we also do app orders for deliveries. We are extremely busy. The team that works for Stotesburys has been for the last 13 years so I am absolutely sure that they know what they are doing by now... disorganisation is not something that is familiar with Stotesburys business ... by any mean call me on 01983522316 for further talk ... ww are going to try to implement new ways of improving the service as much as possible . Hope to see you again .. Stotesburys team

Chose to visit due to reviews, but all I can say is it must have been an off day. The staff seemed in a bit of disarray, asked for 1 of 3 fish n chips to have no salt and vinegar but they couldn’t remember which. Travelled to Bembrige fort to eat and find one portion was missing the fish not a cheap omission and all portions not tasting fresh, chips rubbery and fish dry and tasteless. We had a cheaper and tastier meal from a pub the day before.

Pre ordered on the phone and was offered to collect in either 5 or 10 minutes. Due to travelling distance we settled on 10-15 minutes. We arrived at the 15minute mark. We then had to wait for a further 30minutes whilst we watched multiple delivery drivers come and go. I would hate to make the assumption that the delivery drivers orders were taking priority regardless of what was ordered. Once we finally got our food, it was ok. Small portions in comparison to other venues that were sadly closed and more expensive too!

It's no secret that us brits are partial to a 'chippy tea' and as a result I think it's fair to say that as a result, we're quite picky about our choice of go-to local 'chippy'. Well, I can say with absolute confidence that since moving to the Isle of Wight 2 years ago, I am delighted to have found a fish and chip shop that consistently delivers exceptional food and great service. As a family run business, they really have their heart set on being the best and it shows from the minute you walk in the door. The food is great, their batter (on anything) is just superb and quality of their chips never falters. If you're looking for a great 'chippy tea'...this is the place to go, you will not be disappointed.

The best fish and chips on the Isle of Wight everything is cooked fresh to order so there might be a slight waiting time. Most chippys have one fryer to fry everything. So looking for halal food I was very assured by being showed the separate fryers for meat, fish and chips. Customer service was on point, definitely a staple on our next return, oh and thanks for the complimentary ketchup 👍🏽

On holiday and on the first night wanted a quick tasty meal... sent my husband out and he came back with the most amazing fish, scampi, chips, peas and tartare sauce, all cooked to order and totally yummy! Really friendly service in line with Corona restrictions, nothing too much trouble. Would absolutely recommend, Thankyou x

We visited Stotesburys after seeing they are the top rated on the Isle of Wight with trip advisor and OMG they do not disappoint.. My family and I are over for Cowes week and after being disappointed with what Cowes chippies had to offer decided to drive to Newport . We first went in on Saturday and whilst the wait was around 45 minutes it was truly worth it , delicious Batter , golden crispy chips and welcoming staff , We loved it so much we returned Monday and I’m happy to report that it was just as good 😊 We will probably be back again before we go back to London , 100% recommended just be prepared for a wait as they are extremely busy

After walking 20 miles along the coastal path & 45 mins of the bus getting back to Newport, we were ready for dinner, but our usual chippie was unexpectedly closed. A quick Google search found us Stotesburys & I’m so glad as they were amazing! Although we had missed the last order time for gluten free, the GF fryer was still hot so they fired it back up for me and then, because there was a bit of a wait due to a high volume of orders (it was Saturday night), they added some ice cream to our dessert order! We were just super grateful that they had managed to fit us in & do me a GF cod & chips!!! Great friendly team who were still smiling on a busy Saturday night. Thank you so much! Oh & the fish & chips were delicious 😋 Really great to see they had a full GF & veggie menu too 👍🏼
