“wrong plaice”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

I have only been once and did not like the cod and chips I got as they were too oily. Other locals have also said it is not a great chip shop.

“Local chippy”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

This is my local chippy. The chips are usually always good and the fish is usually to a high standard too with crispy batter (I cannot comment on the Chinese menu or other items). Sometimes there is a queue and you need to wait 5-10 minutes but that just means the fish is being cooked to order and not sitting on the hot plate going soggy? The food served is generally quite consistent.

“Does anyone care”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Seems to be staffed by 16 year olds who love to chat amongst themselves. Food is lacklustre and served with indifference. The initial appearance of the upstairs is that it is a student bedsit and the building is dilapidated despite the new signage. Food is not great and the chips are blanched and dumped in a large tray behind the counter for re-frying. Very popular with the herd who are not too fussy about their food. Place always feels abandoned.
You can always tell when the owner is away, no one else seems to bother much and customer service fails to deliver on such occasions. Mind you the choice of chip shops in the town centre means this shop has a virtual monopoly.

“Good Chinese”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

The place is a bit austere and not terribly welcoming and doubles up as a Chinese takeaway and chippy. Plumped for Chinese and pleased to say the food was very good.
