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.

Nice chippy in a lovely village. Staff resonantly friendly but food lets it down. Chips seemed bit old and like scraps more than full thick and freshly cooked. Buttered sausage was a bit over done and dry for my liking so again possibly not freshly made.

We called In dinner time 20th April Not been since before covid. What a disappointment new to us proprietors ? We ordered fish chips Fish peas with scraps, separate chips. Chips were already cooked. Put fish in had to wait for fish (that’s ok) Wife asked if chips were fresh oh yes was told. The young lady who was searching had to be informed a couple of time how we wanted them. Just as taking the fish out. They put the chips back in. Wrapped them up put in bag went just down road to eat them. They were all put in individual containers. Not seasoned after numerous times requesting. The chips were 🥶 cold. & inedible Before we were regular customers during Carravan season. Not no more

We are locals & try our best to support local shops & businesses. However the chippy in bradwell has time & time again let us down. In the past the food has been over cooked or raw, the people can be quite rude & tonight was the last straw it took 40 minutes to cook a plain sausage that was already in the warmer, one regular fish, one regular chips & two tubs of peas. We noticed also that the place was filthy, disgusting. Then an elderly gentleman placed his order & sat down in one of the two chairs provided. But was then asked to wait outside, he said “ but I am an old man & it’s cold outside (4degrees) but was told he had to go out... absolutely disgusting. We will never set foot inside this chippy again & will make sure that everyone we know is aware of how bad it is. If you are looking for decent service & good quality food try Tideswell there are two chippys there or Toll Bar at Stoney Middleton or at the weekend Castleton is fantastic

My partner and I have had some nightmare fish and chip shops in our times on holiday , this was not one of them. Had fish chips and peas, clean fat being used shone through with tasty chips with no after taste, fish was white and flakey with no smell meaning nice and fresh and their peas were lovely. Lovely portion size couldn’t eat it all. Served by two lovely girls polite and friendly to a tea, may have to go back again before we leave. Only observation and this is just a preference for me , is batter could of been a little crisper, maybe bring the fat up a degree to achieve that. Thanks girls it was lovely.

We ordered 2 fish and chips from Bradwell Fisheries. Firstly we waited for over 20 mins whilst other people who came after us were served. I went in to remind them that we had been waiting, and it looked like our order had been forgotten. We finally got our fish and chips to take away before they closed. Back home we opened them up to find one small fish and three fried what looked like sausages but were filled with cheese. The chips were awful..If the shop had been open I would have taken them back straight away.

Cant believe that this shop has gone from the best around to the worst anywhere in the area. Service is terrible waiting 20 mins to get served with no one asking what you want. Not really busy only one person working. It's a complete joke of a shop.

The Bradwell fisheries was a two minute walk from our cottage. We had fish and chips from here on two nights of our weeks stay. The fish was lovely, no grease on the batter and the chips plentiful. Reasonably priced as well. Overall really good and the staff were very friendly.

Probably the worst fish and chips I have ever (nearly) eaten. It looked as though the fish had been flattened by a large weight before being cooked for the umpteenth time. What I got for £6 was mainly batter plus cardboard fish which varied from 2-3mm and which hadn't been skinned properly. The chips were barely passable. Needless to say almost all of it finished in the bin and I cooked myself a bacon sandwich.

Imagine my reaction when I turn up at bradwell fisheries and they’ve run out of fish! Well I can tell you my friends reaction “huh ha it looks like there’s no fishy dishies in this place” (for context he has a speech impediment which makes him talk like Michael mouse) The owner was looking downtrodden if not a little sad and gloomy. “What’s happened” I asked? “Huh ha what’s happened” said my friend. “I’ve been the victim of a prank” said the owner “they stole all of my fish, and all the jumbo sausages.” “Goof, not the schlongerdongers!” Said my friend. “We’re going to have to catch some more.” And before we knew it we were down at bradwell Brook, Ross in hands, trying to real in some fresh new catches. Thankfully back in my hay day (dates October 4th 1997 - November 7th 1999) they called me the salmon stapler of the hope valley. “Huh ha avast a salmon” cried my friend who was now adorned with mouse ears and wearing red dungarees. With a flick of the wrist and a spin of my wrist also I had reeled in a whopper and the people waiting in line at the fish and chip shop all gathered round as we devoured it fresh together as a group. Wasn’t served any chips though and I’m not prepared to go and grow my own potatoes. >:( All in all a nice meal tho.

We were in Bradwell in March 2024 and opted for fish & chip tea for one of our nights. The fish & chip shop is open all afternoon, although most of the times we walked past there were not many customers. This may have been due to the time of year though. The menu on the wall was quite extensive so should be possible for anyone to find a meal they like. We chose standard fish & chips and when I asked the girl behind the counter what the difference was in terms of size between the small & regular fish, I received a very abrupt reply describing how the size of the fish varies depending on the thickness, width, length etc. Once we had ordered and engaged her in conversation she did become friendlier. We were looking forward to our chippy tea by the time we exited the shop, and rushed back to the cottage we were staying in. Disappointingly however, the food was not to our expectations! The chips were luke warm and had obviously been out of the fryer for quite some time. The fish was bland and to my taste a little dry. The mushy peas also were only just warm, although they were quite tasty. All in all a poor choice. I would not recommend this fish and chip shop.

So far, what I cook myself just doesn't help me. Each meal, is a mistake I can't take back. Cold heart, when our car broke down by bradwell chippie. Old fart, came out the door in clothes so black. Ooh, he closed the door and cooked us some yummy food Showed me the fish and chips (the best) It's some lovely food, helped me to escape bradwell I'm in Nothing left to lose, filled me right down to my skeleton My mate won a prize at the fair again. We all tried, effervescent goldfish with no objection But each time, they remind me why I need that chef. Fish pies, how I thought by now chips would be better I realized, we were cooking chips all wrong before Ooh, I close the door on my armoury too. Show me there's still some fighting left. It's a lonely view, help me to escape Bradwell I'm in Nothing left to lose, let me wrap up my fish again.

.. just visited this place .. walked into an empty shop except for a young lady engrossed in her phone. After trying to get her attention twice and being blatantly ignored twice I finally got served. Then had to wait over 20 minutes (after a couple of other customers who came in after me) "for the peas". Needless to say the next time I shall be driving that bit further to Tideswell or Hathersage ... this place doesn't deserve the custom.

7pm seems a reasonable time to be served reasonable food. How wrong were we!!! Problem 1. painfully slow service. With 3 ( very nice patient people) in front of me it took over 40 minutes before they prepared and wrapped half my order...and then some, when they messed up ( no apologies ) They had forgotten to cook my fish (yes they had run out of cooked FISH !!!) Delay due to rather rude discussion between server and cook and then finally frying my fish. Result = bad feeling and patience required again! Problem 2. Very poor reaction to my checking if food was still warm after such a LONG WAIT. The server called ME rude for this!!! She said there had been a queue ( of 3!!) She threatened not to serve me at all whilst the "cook" was chatting on the phone. I said give me my money back then if you don't want to provide food for my money ( oh yes they always make sure you pay before you join the queue). They said they could not give the money back...(effectively breaking the contract and threatening to steal my money from me in my opinion I thought). This thuggish behaviour was not right. The two of them said they would call the manager ( "cook's" dad apparently....so very objective !!!) and I said I would call the police then. They smiled at this....maybe they have done this routine before I thought? Effectively they were surely trying to steal from me at this point? Suddenly they seemed to think and finally wrapped and gave me the second half of my order and I thankfully left with them shouting at me not to bother to come back. Of course I would not! Other reviews show people leaving without food. Mmmm. Problem 3. Taste test. They can microwave pies ( I'll give them that)....but they were cold. The fish was flat (?) and greasy. The curry sauce was pretty cold and tasteless and the chips were totally inedible!!! They were brown, odd tasting ( due to I suspect old unclean oil) and cold!! Shocking!! Perhaps not so shocking given the saga..... This is a poor excuse for a Fish and Chip shop...my worst experience EVER! Do not go unless you wish to be treated to terrible service, attitude and food!!! How do they get any good reviews? Half seem to be real experiences...so where do the other ( good) reviews come from? My advice and GENUINE feedback - AVOID at all costs.

Very nice takeaway fish and chips. Crisp batter and a generous sized piece of fish. Friendly, efficient people running the place.
