Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Georges Fisheries is located on the main street (Victoria Ave) at the end closer to the river.

It is an old fashioned diner / cafe that is attached to the fish and chip shop.

The menu offered lots of different fish dinners as well as grills and burgers, as well as a variety of sides. The prices are very reasonable and all orders come with bread and butter and a cup of tea! This is just completely outstanding!

they staff were incredibly freindly. we didn't know the opening hours and arrived 10 minutes before closing, We turned to leave when they told us they were closing in 10, but they ushered us in and told us not to "worry about it"!

We had blue cod and chips, with a side of coleslaw. the wait staff forgott to ask if we wanted the fish battered, crumbed or grilled, so we both had batered. beautiful crispy batter around lovely flakey fish. Perfectly crispy chips, all comfortingly irregular sized.

it was good old fashioned food, very tasty.

I wouldn't change a thing, and i can't wait till my next visit!

If the sun is shining then recommend you get some fish and chips from George's and head down to the river near the information centre

Very pleasant way to break up a journey

Chip portions are massive beware !!

Loved the blast from the past, old old fashion fish and chip meal, brought me back to my youth, a plate of fresh bread, free tea or coffee and a nice feed of fresh fish. Long may you continue to give us baby boomers memories of the good old days

Hands down, Georges is the best fish and chips in Whanganui. I've been many times, and not been disappointed yet. I love how you can pick your own fish from the window display, and they will cook it for you, or alternatively you can take it home fresh, and cook it yourself.
