I have written a previous review of this chippy, but after reading recent poor reviews since it changed owners I was apprehensive about a revisit but the food is just as good as before, I can only think that the new owners took a little time to settle in. I would recommend this chippy again.

Food is nice from here. I work down the road so sometimes nip here for lunch. Steak and kidney pudding is lovly and the large chips are large! I would recommend here I'd you fancy chippy and are near by. You can choose to eat in or out.

Could have sworn this place had the wow factor last time we visited but 5 months on, I can only say it's okay. Fish was a bit overdone with crispy batter but on the oily side. Service was efficient and it seemed busy enough so maybe it was a one-off.

I USED to go here near enough every week for years to buy our Friday chippy tea but last few times it's been horrible! When the two older guys had it it was honestly the best fish & chip shop for miles but now the fish is half the size & greasy and the chips are green or soggy. The... More

After their first visit in November last year my friends and I have been back twice and once again we found it to be still running to the highest standard with the portions being to the usual generous standard. Harry the dog was with us again so we went to the take-out and hurried home with our meals. Harry found... More

Was visiting family in bispham and was looking forward to a battered fish. We ordered four and they ranged from bad to disgusting. Fish was tasteless and rubbery, with almost burnt hard batter which tasted of old cooking fat. Parts of the fish were almost impossible to cut with a normal knife, certainly not worth the money we paid
