“Best fish and chips on the Northumberland coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

You won't find any fish and chips better than these on the Northumberland coast - possibly in the north east. Great value for money. Sit-in bright and cheerful. Does what it says on the tin.

“Best Fish Shop? Not sure”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

I liked this busy little shop but found the food to be average. The fish bites were fresh & tasty enough but rather oily. If you like crispy dough then you will love this, but just a bit too much dough for my taste. The chips were nice, but nothing to write home about. Definitely worth the price as the serving was big.

“Lunch time treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

We were on holiday in Berwick and travelled around to different places each day today was the turn of Alnwick. We decided upon recommendation from a young lady in the house and home store who told us that the cheese and onion savouries were very very nice. She wasn't wrong they were to die for along with a portion of chips, would have brought some home if I could. The takeaway was very clean, staff were very friendly and would definitely visit again

“Simple the best, better than Rick Steins in Padstow, my uncle says.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Well second visit to Carlo's and again the staff were excellent and the fish and chips amazing. My uncle who is a bit of a fish and chip snob said this is one of the best fish and chip meals he's ever had. He even said it was better than Rick steins chippy in Padstow which we visited 4 years ago, so praise indeed.
