“Not at all bad”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

I went in saying "Your chips have been recommended on Trip Advisor" so they knew what to expect! Everything was cooked fresh, but I still found the chips disappointing and not crispy - maybe it's the spuds they use? The fish, however, was excellent and a good size.

“Great chips everytime!!”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 via mobile

I might have been just fortunate to have amazing chips in the last few visits, portions are not that special but for the quality and freshness I can't really moan.

“Consistently Outstanding Fish & Chips”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

I live down the road from this place and have trouble walking to the shop next door without going in for chips. I have only found chips this good a few times in my life so far, and even once I have found a good place to buy chips they have their good and bad days. This place however (no pun intended) serves amazing chips every time. Never change your jolly Friar, you are the best!
