I have been using this chippy for years and there is no better anywhere that I have been (not just in Lincoln) great tasting and good value food. The queue outside especially on a Saturday will tell you all you need to know!

“Best chip shop in Lincoln and surrounding areas.”
Reviewed 2 November 2012 via mobile

Trying to find a decent fish and chip shop around Lincoln is hard, there is only one that i will visit and it is this one. Always fresh, hot and reasonable portion.

“The best Fish & Chips in Lincoln”
Reviewed 19 October 2012

This is a family-run fish & chip shop & restaurant.
The premises are quite small with the take-away opening onto the street. For the restaurant you have to go down the passage at the side and then up some steep spiral steps.
It is however, well-worth the effort.
I usually have a bag of chips with curry sauce fromthe takeaway but from time to time treat myself to a meal in the restaurant.
The fish has tasty golden batter and the succulent flaky fish is really delicious

Be prepared to queue as it is always busy with local people

The shop does not open during the evenings or at night, so plan your visit at lunch time.

The atmosphere of the place is not suited for a special occasion or a romantic meal but if you love fish & chiips - it is simply the best in Lincoln.
