“Really Good Fish and Chips”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Excellent Fish and Chips and is owned by a really nice guy Daniel who goes out of his way to introduce himself. Just one fault for me is that I drive a long way to collect and the chips "sweat" a bit in the packaging and get a bit soggy so would love the option of old fashioned paper wrapping. Keep up the standards Daniel.

“Fabulous food, service and Gluten free choice as well.”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

I was delighted to find out by pure accident that Ridgeway Fish Bar offer a gluten free choice. Apparently they will be doing this on the first and third Tuesday of every month. The staff were well informed for those that have to follow a gluten free diet. A friendly service and fabulous fresh food. I would highly recommend this to all.

“Superb fish and chip shop in St Albans”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

The cod and chips was excellent! The batter was light and crisp and the fish succulent and cooked to perfection. Neither the fish nor the chips were at all greasy. You can't get a better take away!

“Best fish and chips in the land!!!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

after visiting st albans with my wife and daughter on a busy saturday afternoon we came across the Ridgeway Fish Bar and decided to stop and have fish and chips. My normal experiences had in fish and chip shops has been pretty bland but the reception you receive in the Ridgeway was exceptional. Smiling faces and a real interest in serving us went a long way. The level of service, long list of menu on offer together with the very high quality of food served was a real pleasure to have.

In my opinion, by far the best fish and chips I have ever had. We will be back in St Albans very soon indeed.....10 out of 10.
