“Look, no queue!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

On our return from a trip to the Isle of May we planned to buy our fish supper at the better known place just along the front. However, the queue there was so long and we were so hungry (must have been all that fresh air!) that we went instead to the Wee Chippy (as recommended by a local, in fact!). No queue, freshly fried fish - and chips were great. We wondered whether to try the battered pizza but thought better of it!

There may be a better known chip shop close by but our chip shop of choice is The Wee Chippy! Great service and great value for money!

“Better than the other plaice so don't be a poor sole.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Ate in the award winning chip shop on the Tuesday and was so disappointed and a local gentleman told us about The Wee Chippy so we decided to give it a try on the Friday. Fish and chips for five and nobody had any complaints. Freshly fried fish in a nice crispy batter served with a great portion of chips. Staff were friendly and polite and they seemed happy to be at work which is always a good feeling for the customer. Next time we are in Anstruther it will only be this plaice for us. Thanks for the enjoyable experience.

“Much better before take over ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

This used to be the best chippy in Anstruther (in fact anywhere!!) by a mile, but since it was taken over by one of the other in Anstruther it has gone down hill.

The portions are smaller, packaging cheap and flimsy in comparison to before and most importantly of all the batter on fish is now soggy. Chips are still good though.

“Tasty Fish & Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Absolutely delicious fish & chips from The wee chippy Anstruther. The food is fresh cooked and well worth the wait. Nothing better that eating your fish *& Chips outside on a warm Scottish night
