Reviewed 28 May 2014

Recently visited for lunch. It cost almost £20 for two portions of fish and chips with peas, a cup of tea and a glass of diet coke. The fish was soggy and undercooked and was totally lacking in any flavour. Very disappointing and not worth the money. A young lad on the next table to us had a sausage which also looked undercooked. We will not be visiting again.

After few hours of walking around Stratford upon Avon my family and I decided to have fish and chips for dinner so we went to Barnaby's as it seemed close to town and as it was friday we said we must have the Traditional! We had 4 fish and chips and mushy peas and they weren't just fish and chips. Served in 7 minutes we had the nicest piece of Cod ever, with very reasonable amount of batter, well coated, and the chips were fantastic. Obviously paying the odd £7 for one meal was well worth me sticking around for. We have had excellent customer service and we will definitely recommend this place to family and friends and spread the good word!! Five Stars and 10 out of 10. We will come back!

Fish and chips were okay but totally overpriced. Boyfriend ordered two sausages which were disgusting and cost £2.20, when I told them and asked if we could have a refund as they weren't very nice and inedible, the staff told me that some people don't like sausages! What kind of response is that?!? Overall bad service and overpriced food. I wouldn't bother with this place.

It was yesterday May 5th, a Bank Holiday and the sun was shining. So, lets go for a drive, take the roof off the car and head off for .....Stratford upon Avon, why not?

It was very busy and finding somewhere to eat outside was challenging but we came across Barnaby's Fish & Chip restaurant, well more a cafe and at 2pm on a Bank Holiday Monday the queue to get fish and chips came out the door and went a good 50 yards down the street. Whoa, a Brit I may be but queuing is not a national sport, not in my book....

Until a young lady seated at one of the outside tables told us the queue was for the 'take away' not if you're eating in, or in our case outside!

We both had cod and chips, they'd run out of the haddock, and there was enough food on the plate for two and it was great, and all for £7 a head. They have bottled beer and little bottles of red & white wine at £3.25 a bottle, nicely chilled too; the white!

The whole place is a bit mad but well worth a visit, we'll be going again, give it a try
