“Nice fish but very tight with their portions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

Generally nice and clean, serving nice fish. Most chippies over-face you with the size of their portions but this one is different. If you want fish and chips ask for your portions separate because if you don't the get the tray and put the fish in first and then put a very small amount of chips around. I've never seen this done in any other chippy but they do it every time so they know what they are doing and it just makes you feel that they are trying to short serve you. Sorry but just being truthfull.

“Nothing Special Really But Fills A Gap.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

We occasionally call in when shopping in Widnes. Always busy at weekends but the place is nothing special really. The décor is very dated and a bit like a school canteen. Average to small size portions and not cheap either! The man who fries the fish never smiles also which only adds to the rather sombre atmosphere!

They are obviously making pots of money here but it could be so much nicer and so much more customer focused with just a little effort.

“A cut above the competition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

A consistently good cafe which offers excellent quality of food and cleanliness. Service was quick and efficient despite nearly all the tables being occupied. Yes, it costs slightly more than the competition but it is good value.

“Could the staff be any happier.. yes .. sarcasm”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

The staff are soooo miserable. Chips are anaemic, would well rather go grahams next door just for a smile. Spose it is the only chippy you can sit down if you visit the lovely poundlands and charity shops of windes
