“Thick Batter and Small Fish Fillet”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

I have now tried this shop on 3 occasions

THIS SHOP IS NOW UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT AND I HAD HIGH EXPECTATIONS!
1st time the fish and chips were very crispy not bad all in all but a little greasy
2nd time the fish and chips were awful, soggy batter and chips refried and chewy!! Maybe one off??
3rd time after requesting crispy batter, the fish on the outside was crispy, however the batter was so thick the inside of it was still soggy but it was hiding the actual small piece of fish which was diabolical!!
The ladies frying seemed very friendly, but, unless they get the basics right the shop will not stay open for long!!
I would recommend that the fryers visit West Hoe Fryers, speak to Nick and ask how it is done properly, that way the residents of Eggbuckland would be guaranteed regulars in the future and have fish and chips cooked to perfection.

“Great value chippy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Have been coming here for years, when we've fancied a trip to the chippy. Portions are very generous, large pieces of fish cooked to perfection and the chips are of a high standard too.

Great value if you fancy the chippy. Food prices have been reduced, so even better value for money! :)

“Excellent take away food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

I love this tucked away fish and chip shop in Eggbuckland and stop by for my take away lunch most Thurdays and really look forward to it. The fish is always well cooked with a lovely crisp batter, the chips too are of a high standard. The portions are very generous and extremely well priced. Jo (the boss lady) is always cheerful and very helpful. The first Monday evening in every month is a gluten free night which I believe is proving very successful and has a good number of regular customers. I thoroughly recommend it.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

Really nice fish and chips. Just a shame they always seem to be shut
They have reduced price to get more custom ! Maybe they should consider opening more often

“Nice staff but horrible fish and chips”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

I had been given a pointer to go to this fish and chip shop as it was supposedly amazing. Sadly it was truly awful. The portion size was very small, the chips looked like microwaved value ones and tasted horrible. The fish was accompanied by its skin which is never nice and looked like something that had been scraped off the floor. Got home and had to throw it away as it was that bad, went to Francine's instead which is in a different league and only cost £3 more for the family.
