Quite simply, the best by far. Top class fish and chips, which can be enjoyed with a glass of wine - or non alcoholic drinks if preferred. Pleasant and efficient service. A testament to its popularity is the fact that at 5 pm, when it opens up for evening service, there's a queue outside the door - and there's often... More

As an ex-pat, it has been 40+ years since I was in Gt Eccleston. The village is still quaint and interesting. We tried the 'chippy' on the basis of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The fish, Cod in this instance, was beautifully cooked with just the right amount of batter. The portion was huge;... More

This is in my top 3 Fish and Chips ever. Golden cod with crispy chips and mushy peas. We had a takeaway but it was full inside - no wonder - what a great reputation this place has. Located on the main road in a picturesque village.

This is one of the jewels in Gt. Eccleston's crown. A great takeaway or eat in fish & chippy. Reasonably priced, the food is always hot and tasty. I can thoroughly recommend it if you're in the area and looking for something to eat.

We visited here at 5pm, the place was packed out. Served pleasantly and fairly quickly, we chose cod (only available as a massive portion) chips, mushy peas with bread and butter......and cheese and onion pie with the same. Hollands pies are not my favourite, I find them all pastry but acceptable. Chips and mushy peas were excellent as was the... More

Whilst visiting family we visited this chip shop under their recommendations. I had the meat and potato pie which was to die for!!! Husband had the fish and chips and said they were lovely too. Chips slightly greasy but lovely all the same!!

This was the first time in my life that I have managed to eat all of my fish and chips as I usually give up half way through! This meal was too delicious to leave any! The gravy and curry sauces we had tasted homemade, absolutely yummy! We will definitely be visiting again.
