“Good food, but expensive and portion sizes could be improved.”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Ruddys is our local chippie. Whilst the quality is always consistent (very good chips!), so is the quantity (not large portions) and excessive pricing.
For example large bag of chips is over £2!!!! and fish more than £4!!!.
Portion sizes are ok but not particularly impressive and they lack some basic chip shop staples e.g sausage rolls and rissoles!
I frequently pop home to visit family and am a regular at the chippie there (Model Fish Bar in Neath). To compare, a large bag of chips there is £1.70 (huge portion- and delicious! ) and fish (very large) is £3.30) And of course they sell sausage rolls, rissoles, rissoles in batter, saveloys, pancake rolls etc.
So whilst I would recommend Ruddy's as a decent chippie, be prepared, you will have had better value and choice elsewhere
