Description: The Jolly Fryer is a family run fish and chip shop located on the Oxford Road next to Reading west station. The shop has been open since 2010. The Jolly Fryer is a traditional fish and chip shop offering a range of different fish, sausages, fishcake, pies and accompaniments. Our renowned chips are made from fresh, daily cut british potatoes. Furthermore our fish is also fresh and filleted daily. Wherever possible we source our foods from british farms and stores. Here at the Jolly Fryer we pride ourselves on three main values: excellent customer service, high quality food and exceptional cleanliness. These values are what seperate us from other fish and chip shops nationally. Our staff are highly trained in these fields and are always willing to help, adjust and satisfy according to different customers needs and wants. These values are also backed up by our 5 star Food Standards Agency hygeine rating. At the Jolly Fryer we make our fish fresh whilst you wait in order to ensure that your fish is of the best quality and that you are fully satisfied with your experience. For those who are time constrained we are more than happy to take orders over the phone so that your food is ready when you arrive. We look forward to seeing you at The Jolly Fryer in the near future.

We've had fish and chips, and chicken, on a regular basis for the last few months and the quality has not failed. Plus they have tartar sauce! Freshly cooked so you may have to wait a little while but the batter is worth it. Generous portions. They tell you what potato variety they are using - and have rock three nights a week.

We have tried the cod and the plaice, both were fresh and very tasty, and the portions were generous. They even provide a lemon slice and a little pot with tartar sauce, a nice touch.
