“Quality far too hit and miss so make it a miss”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2011

The Mr Cod chain has cornered all parts of town and none of them are reliably good. The one nearest us (Whitley Street) can make the most amazing fish n chips, but most of the time they are too lazy to do a good job - they cook batches and leave them in the hot trays all day then when you get it home it is dry as a bone and oily. The fish usually contains loads of bones and sometimes the chips are edible, sometimes not.

We get suckered in from time to time by a decent meal, then the next time we go it ends up in the bin. So, lesson learned - it's not worth risking any of the Mr Cod places as chances are you will get inedible muck. And as it's takeaway we are not going to walk or drive back and complain, so they get away with it. Save your money!!!!

“Worst chippie ever.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2011

Nasty, oily, tasteless and gross. An embarrassment to chip shops everywhere.
