First the disclaimer: I'm not a fish lover! So why did I go to a fish and chip restaurant? Well. my wife does eat fish, chose cod and said it was very good. And I went with her because they offer a lot more than fish. But I really didn't enjoy it. I had soup of the day as a... More

What a lovely friendly welcome we received and a delicious fish and chip supper. It was so tasty and freshly cooked to order. The batter was so light that I even ate it and I never eat fish batter! Will be going back

If you like fish and chips then this is the plaice to visit. If you don't like fish then they offer the usual chip shop type alternatives. They have a good variety of fish types (Cod, Haddock, Gurnard, Huss, Plaice etc) on the menu and the food is well cooked and tasty. Staff are attentive and service is quick. You... More

Got some take away fish and chips from here. When I got home my large cod and large chips were very small. My partners regular cod was like a minow. Even the curry sauce was only just over half full. It tasted nice, although the batter was a little soggy. It's a shame as olivers used to be the best... More

We've been to both the restaurant and takeaway many times, but on our last trip I had a craving for a fish finger sandwich which wasn't on the menu, but they were wonderfully accomodating! A fantastic sandwich with their own homemade cod fish fingers! Rest of the family loved their food too, service was quick despite the restaurant being busy... More

We were a party of 5 on Sunday celebrating our Gran Aunts birthday, absolutely fantastic fish and chips thoroughly enjoyed by all. Well done guys hope you deservedly enjoyed your christmas party. We will definitely be back as have never had fish with such a light crispy batter out of this world.

This is our local chippy, although we don't use it that often. Took my Dutch cousin to sample the most typically British meal. She loved it and so did we. Olivers was very busy and service was a little longer than normal but the quality of the food was excellent. If you are using the M3 and don't want expensive... More
