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.

Popped in for takeaway sausage and chips on a busy Saturday afternoon. Service was quick and in no time we were enjoying beautiful chips on the seafront. Great food at a reasonable price

This is my second visit the first was in May 2023. Didn't have to wait outside this time as the restaurant wasn't busy and was seated and served promptly. Ordered large cod and half portion of chips with pot of tea for one for one...at lunchtime on 3.4.24. Food arrived almost immediately so the fish must have been sitting there waiting . Cod was a tail piece this time and much smaller - flesh was dry and and off white/grey compared with the large delicious plump pure white flakes of last year . Batter was dry and dark brown not golden as before . Chips were VERY dry outside and inside with more hard pointed bits and scraps than long ones. No soya milk for tea only oat - so I had cows milk. The family next to me returned a child's burger after a couple of bites I don't know why and they refused an offer of another one. I saw larger decent looking cod served to other tables however the chips all looked the same as mine. The restaurant, crockery and cutlery were all spotlessly clean and waitresses polite. The food that was the problem. I wish I had complained about the food too but didn't I want to cause a fuss. Paid £18.50 CASH. So disappointing as I had planned to return here when I booked my day trip from Essex and was looking forward to my lunch. Last year 10/10 this year 2/10.More

By far and without exception .. the best fish and chips I’ve ever tasted.. and for someone over 60, I hope that means something! The fish was beautiful , light without soggy batter… a good piece of chunky cod! If I was served this in...a sit down restaurant I wouldn’t have been disappointed. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED especially as the staff were working their b*lls Off! We had a few minutes to wait but well worth it. Clearly… you get what you pay for. Perfect !!! A great end to our week in Cromer !More

Lousy, greasy fish and chips, totally over priced sausage and chips at £9.50. Okey, if the two sausages had been butcher's, rather than a leading cheap supermarket brand, then £9.50 be acceptable. Matching the cheap sausages were the awful, cheap sauce sachets on the table,...tasted disgusting too. No Heinz, or HP at this overpriced dump. On going to pay the bill was asked cash, or card. Tapped the machine and no sooner I'd payed when I was met with attitude by a young girl (not the slim one) stating we aren't ment to accept American Express. Hardly my fault, terribly rude attitude so would advise against eating at this establishment on the grounds of a member of staff's attitude, and generally poor food. Much better run establishment around and one the corner I'd highly recommend walking there.More

Amazing quality fish and chips and really fresh . The chips are particularly tasty as they are cooked in lard. The staff were very efficient and friendly. Will definitely return.

Wow!! Great fish & chips….it’s no wonder people are queuing out the door! The service is fast, nice portion size & the haddock that we ordered was really very good. We only ate take-out, on two occasions, but there is indoor dining available. Despite being...very busy the staff were very helpful, friendly & polite. ***If you are NHS/emergency services & show your ID or BlueLight card you get a discount…thank you for that, much appreciated & most kind!!!More

Vegetarians well catered for had a lovely pie and chips. If you order a vegetarian option the chips are cooked in vegetable oil. We had a very good lunch and great value.

Not great service, food was warm and not as hot as would like. Especially for eating in. Sticky chairs and one chair broke on a lady. They didn’t seem too bothered but grabbed another one. Hair in batter. I wouldn’t say it’s the best food...I have had or service.More

Unfortunately 2 pieces of cod went in the bin. Inedible due to lots and lots of bones, large ones at that- not safe for my children to eat. I have had many fish and chips but never before had one this terrible! Unfortunately didn’t read...the masses of other reviews stating the same before ordering! (To be clear the odd bone in fish is to be expected, but so many large ones isn’t).More

Having tried them all, we found Mary Janes to be the best quality fish and chips in Cromer and indeed the surrounding area. The table service was also impeccable
