“great food”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Slightly more expensive than the average chip shop but we'll worth it! Lovely choice on menu. Eat in or take away.

“Loved this place”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We were stopping off on the way to the tunnel, and wanted to indulge a craving for fish and chips during our holiday to England.

This place covered this off very well, top notch chips in a clean and pleasant atmosphere.

Highly recommended!

“Excellent Fish & Chips”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

This restaurant is a sister to the Rocksalt Restaurant, both situated by the harbour at Folkestone and owned by the same Master Chef, Mark Sargeant.

It can accommodate about 36 diners who sit on low stools at squarish tables. The extensive menus are under glass on each side of the table, but some are missing (like mine) which we mentioned to the waitress, but to no avail!

However, the fish & chips (one Haddock & one Cod) we ordered were fabulous and could not be faulted. They were served in boxes with lids on...........a bottle of the most delicious tomato ketchup is on each table ~ a treat in itself.

Whilst not the cheapest f&c around that area, you get what you pay for and in this case an excellent dining experience. Highly recommended.

“Best fish and chips in the area”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We and our teenage kids love eating here. We have had sausage, cod, plaice and scampi and all has been amazing. I especially adore the homemade tartare sauce
The fish batter is light and delicious. In fact we find it so rich and delicious I can never finish mine (which is unusual for me)
We tend to takeaway and wander down to the beautiful bay to eat ours and so cannot comment on eating in
On the last occasion we went what I ordered was not available and so what I chose was more expensive but we were not charged the excess
For fish and chips which are far superior to the usual stuff chucked out of takeaways then make this place the place to eat.

“Beautifully Cooked Fish”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

It's not the cheapest fish and chip takeaway so one would expect quality ............ we both had haddock and it was beautiful. However, the chips let the Smokehouse down bigtime. At a guess they are possibly bought in chilled chips or at least having been in the catering business that's what they taste like ............ a bit cardboardy and tasteless. Potatoes peeled and cut fresh on the premises would make all the difference!!
