“use often”
Reviewed 28 November 2012

i go here because of the tasty chips, thick but still crispy. good chicken, strangly enough i am not really keen on the fish, i only had it once but use this establishment most weeks for a fried chicken dinner, which i look forwards too.

“Standard Fish & Chip Shop”
Reviewed 26 September 2012

Standard chicken burgers and chips. Open til late hence 4 stars plus they hit the spot and the chips are good.
Only bad review is they advertise sugary donuts, but its actually 1 very small chocolate donut - disappointed.

“Dreadful”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

Mr cod!!! What a joke. I have never been into a fish and shop in uk where none of the staff could speak hardly a word of English. When I ordered a battered sausage they were absolutely dumbfounded and didn't have a clue what one was. Quite frankly the worst fish and chip shop I have ever been I.

“Quality far too hit and miss so make it a miss”
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!!!!
