“The best fish and chips”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Winscombe fish bar serve some of the best fish and chips for many miles, you only need to see the queue out of the door every evening to know this is a popular destination for many people.

The Fish and Chips are great, but my personal favourite is the chicken: it has a lovely crispy skin, and the chicken inside is moist and never dry.
The battered sausages are good too, with incredibly crispy batter.

Portion sizes are enormous, which makes it good value for money (you can easily feed 2 people from 1 bag of chips).

My tip would be to telephone your order in advance as it gets very busy.

“Excellent Fish and Chips as Always”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Have been using this Fish and Chip bar for 19 years now and have never had a bad meal from them. Beautiful fish, cooked well and awesome chips. Curry sauce is wonderful. Also do white bait and scampie if you fancy something different.

“Now the service is as good as the food!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

OK, I'll put my hands up. Previous experience here was delicious food but really slow service. Well, things seem to have improved A LOT! Ordered some food in advance by telephone on two occasions now and have been served really promptly on arrival. What a transformation! Well done to the management for having worked on it and got the service side right now, so the whole experience is so much better than it once was. So, after eating my words, I'm going to tuck in to this VERY tasty meal, cooked and supplied by Winscombe Fish Bar!

“Fish and Chips at Their Best”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

I have used this fish and chip shop many times and would pass other fish shops to go there. Excellent range of foods as well as the best tasting and good portion fish, cooked to order in most cases. Hand cut chips cooked to perfection. All this and a good welcome from the staff and the owner, who always has time for you. They really deserve to be as busy as they are. Keep it up guys and thank you.
