Had the most amazing fish and chips, will be going there again in July 2017, my none Coeliac family said the battery was better than theirs I had to agree of course.

Me and my family have visited here three times recently (we were staying in a hotel just up the road and I believe this is the only chip shop around. Each time I have to say the staff have been so busy chatting amongst themselves, they barely have time to serve you and it takes a while to get their... More

It's been around 5 years since I was last in this fish and chip shop, it's standards have slipped by a long way in this time. I had Braddock and chips, the OH had the big cod meal. My fish was good, the chips were greasy and tasteless. His large cod was actually 3 small pieces(?). The whole place felt... More

Stopped by on Christmas eve for a portion of chips after a long walk. For two pound you got a portion of tasty chips, however the portion was pretty small so not great value.

When staying in Sandown in July 2016 we thought we would have some fish and chips after being out for a drink. We called into the shop, it was 9:40pm. There were about three guys all having a chat, in a natural break in the conversation we asked for two cod and chips. With no apology or grace the guy... More

Stopped in for a eat lunch with the family. Very reasonable prices and the fish was cooked to order. Very good fish and chips. The only thing that stops it getting the full 5 stars is no free sauces for eat in.

On the high street and busy - close to the beach but won't be back. The fish and chips were swimming in grease - by the time walked back to the beach the papers wrapping the goods were soaked through with grease. Reasonable fish but no better or worse than mainland chip shops. Would avoid.
