Excellent service and the food was brilliant. Wow what a big portion of chips with lovely golden battered cod. Also the staff were extremely helpful with a smile from all of them. I was given a warm welcome directly I walked in! Thanks Babers I will return again soon!

This chippy used to be the best in the area, how ever the quality of food and service has dramatically down graded. Waiting time is extremely long considering I only ordered a portion of chips and probably waited 20 minutes. Food is often either left in the hot plate too long or re heated during less busy times. Staff aren't... More

Love this chippie and use it regularly. However, tonight, Tuesday 1st March my fish was cooked by the blonde haired girl who normally serves as the female fryer was busy out the back. This girl is clearly not a fryer as my fish was awful. The batter was so thick and it was so over cooked the batter was rock... More

The food at Babers is definitely the best in the area. Portions are great and everything I have tried from there tastes amazing. Only improvement I can this of would be a delivery service!

Regular customers here because it is by far our favourite chip shop. You get huge portions of chips which are delicious. And great fish too. Couldn't fault the place!

A big menu and big portion sizes but quality sadly lacking. Chips cold and taste like cardboard, fish not much better either. Service incredibly slow; I've often waited over 10 minutes for food even though there's been only one or two other people in the shop (not asked for anything cooked to order). Sorry, but overall not impressed at all!

Whenever we have fish and chips, we make sure we get it from Babers. The portions are generous and the quality is good. It is excellent value for money with 2 medium chips and 2 cods for £6 as part of the family deal. Very good!
