“Don't bother!”

Harlees Fish and Chips
Ranked #42 of 56 Restaurants in Ferndown
Restaurant details
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This is our last visit to Harlees in Ferndown - we visited on Friday night and waited 40 minutes for 4 cod and chips! Apparently, at one point they had run out of chips!. There were 4 serving, 2 of them to open paper bags, 1 to watch and only 1 to fry. This shop looks busy from outside , don't be fooled, its just customers waiting an extraordinarily long time. We would have eaten quicker in a restaurant. Never again.

Do yourself a favour and go ANYWHERE else. Verwood has a population of c18,000 and you'd struggle to find a local that doesn't have anything but contempt for their service, pricing and food.

Had a late finish at work so thought I would get some chips. Just moved to Verwood so called into Harlees for the first time. Service was a joke 3 behind the counter, no interest in serving the guy in front of me. Carried on with the previous orders and chatting amongst themselves, then served someone who just walked in ?? Finally had my order taken after 10 minutes, then had to wait for them to serve it up. Large chips were not only very small but over done as well. The battered sausage the same, small and over cooked. Never going back !

This relates to the Verwood shop,the food was nothing special and staff could do some training in customer interaction and general communication skills and politeness. Young girl who served obviously did not want to be there. made me feel like I was really causing them an inconvenience by ordering some food, strange attitude with no manners.
