“"Proper fish and chips"”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Have visited on many occasions - proper traditional fish and chip shop, with eat in facilities if required - nothing quite like a plate of fish and chips, a pot of tea and some bread and butter ! Or alternatively have a take away and sit on the seafront nearby (but watch out for the seagulls!). I've always had decent food from here, would highly recommend.

“Once my local, no more.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

After using ernie becketts for over 5 years on occasional visits I am left somewhat gob smacked by the local chippie.
They've upped the price substantially and reduced the portion size. There's only one thing the owner is thinking about here and that's their wallets.

Staff were robotic and the food was average. The fish was small (far from regular) and the chips where soggy.

Whatever happened to Jim the fish fryer? In my opinion he nailed it time and the again when it came to customer service and fish cooked to perfection each time.

Think it's time I returned to ocean fish bar.

“Really nice Fish and chips”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Visited Cleethorpes this date and having read the reviews posted for this take-away we decided to give it a try. I have to say the fish and chips were really nice, the chips cooked just right not too greasy and you got plenty, the fish was lovely and white with the batter nice and crisp again not too greasy. The only reason I've not given 5 stars is that they had run out of bread buns and it was only 12.30pm. My son who is only 9 yrs old really enjoyed his sausage, chips and he aid his gravy was the best he had and have pinched a little I would have to agree with him.
