I must say these were the worst fish and chips I've ever had soggy chips with no flavour the smallest piece of fish I have ever seen for the rip off price of £7 for a takeaway no excuses the lady serving there has worked there years so she knew they were rubbish

Dear Stevethesweets

I was disappointed to read such negative comments about our fish and chips. We receive very good feedback from our local customers regarding all our produce. Our potatoes are peeled and chipped and cooked fresh every day. If you are ever in the area again, please pop in and we would be happy to serve you some complimentary chips, with a soggy-free guarantee.

Ate chips there tonight, soggy and not cooked well, no flavour. Shop looked tidy etc BUT have you tried the chips at 'Godfreys' High St, Harpenden?? they are so much better it is hard to describe how good they are. Wouldn't go to Old Town friar again.

The Old Town Friar is miles more than just a chippy. There is an extremely varied menu with wholesome, freshly made soups and salads with delicious walnut oil dressing and wonderful, moreish cookies and lemon meringue ice cream. The staff are really lovely and welcoming. It is so clean and polished you feel confident that they all take a pride in hygiene and cleanliness. However, above all this you want to know what the fish and chips are like: freshly cut potatoes on shop premises, fresh fish, high quality oil and freshly fried make for a lush flavour. This are the many reasons why I love going to the OTF every week.

The Old Town Friar is exceptional.....wonderful fish and chips but plenty of other food on offer too. Amazing salads, sandwiches and baguettes and their home made soup and cakes are superb. Spotlessly clean and the lady who serves most weekday lunchtimes always greets her customers with a smile and is very friendly and efficient. Definitely worth a visit if you live or work in Beaconsfield or are just visiting!
