Nice big bit of well battered and crispy cod, a decently large portion of hot, crisp chips and a massive pickled onion on a lunch time visit to the coast. What more do you need? (and the staff/owners were friendly).

Easily the best local fish and chip shop. Big, yummy portions of fish. Excellent pea fritter. Expect to wait...the queue is always out of the door and forming before the place is even open, but it is worth it!

I cannot recommend this fish & chip shop highly enough. The food is absolutely delicious! So fresh & tasty. You may have to wait a while as it's very popular but I promise it's worth it.

We visited Alexanders based on the good reviews from TripAdvisor. Either everyone was doing the same or their fish and chips is really that good given the number of customers at the shop queuing. I am glad to say it is the latter. The system they use is good. You order, get a number and wait. The food was nice,... More

Okay so I'm not really a fish lover but had fish from alexanders and it was delicious, their battered sausage is stunning. They treat everyone the same and have friendly staff. Definitely will be returning 😍

Drive down Stanpit and see everyone standing around outside, quite funny really. You initially queue and get an order number even though you only want a bag of chips! Then I waited outside for more than 20 minutes, not sure you would bother if it was raining? An absolutely bizarre queueing system most probably aimed at reducing waste and serving... More

Probably the best chips ever! Just called in after spending the day at Mudeford Quay and was blown away by the quality and freshness of the chips etc. So much so that we had to go back the next day. There seems to be a queue at lunch time and no wonder with the brilliant food on offer.

Great Service, freshly cooked first class fish and chips! Shop was also spotlessly clean! You can see why they have won plenty of awards! What more could you want!!

I've been inaugurated into Alexanders and am just wondering why I've reached the age of sixty before finding the perfect fish and chips. Crispy fish and beautiful chips and excellent menu choices if you don't fancy fish . A gem of a chippy. If you're in Dorset then seek it out and make sure you're hungry
