Description: Ardchoille comes form the Gaelic meaning the 'High wood'. It started life in 1961 when it opened as a place where you could have a coffee and listen to the juke box. Ardchoille Fish & Chip cafe has been continuously owned by the same family since it opened and has served well over one million fish and chips. We now serve Beers and Wines!!!! Indoor and out door patio seating during the summer. It is recommended in the Lonely Planets Guide 2003 - Britain and Ireland: "Serves the cheapest eats in town and does so with atmosphere." The fresh North Sea haddock is very popular. Steak pies, scampi, chicken, also white and black pudding suppers. Haggis suppers.

“Last orders, but just what we wanted”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

All, good - probably not the best chippie i've been too, but seating inside and outside helped. They also serve cans/bottles of beers which is a plus. Good value for money too.

“the worst chippy i have ever had the misfortune to visit”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

This cannot by any stretch of the imagination be described as a fish and chip shop. They sell frozen, yes frozen chips that are deep fried in the frier. It is disgusting, horrible and wrong. If you run a chip shop how hard is it to peel and cut potatoes and then deep fry? I would have gone back and challenged the contents of my takeaway had I not been dumbstruck by the contents in the polystyrene container before throwing them in a nearby bin. Incidentally, the bin was already filled with discerning diners who already had the same idea.

“Frozen chips”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

I should have known when i went in, but I had already made my order, plates and plates of left over food that no one had eaten. These were frozen chips - not traditional British fish and chips. Even for frozen they were awful!! The man behind the counter told me they were not frozen - but 'chilled'? The reason they were 'chilled' is because they were defrosted frozen chips! While I was there a foreign family bought £37 worth of fish and chips . . . proceeding to put them all in the bucket outside the shop. I am ashamed that our lovely traditional Scottish food is being packaged and sold like this!
