A visit here is well worth the wait! There's always a queue but the food is freshly cooked to order. We always have fish without batter and it is beautiful! The staff are so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble! I've stood out in the rain many a time queueing and I wouldn't do it anywhere else. Treat... More

There are not many good chip shops left. This is definitely one of them You can tell its good because you actually eat it all instead of throwing half of it away

A large chips is a lot to handle - you've been warned! The quality is great for the price and we always go here if we're in the need for some indulgence!

Not many open days but well worth a visit The place is clean and the staff efficient. The food is as good as you'll find anywhere. Maybe not the greatest you've ever been to but up with the best. Be prepared for long queues

We go to this chip shop every few weeks for a Friday treat but tonight it was disappointing. The batter on the fish was under cooked and soggy. The chips were not as nice as normal. Maybe an off night? Will give them another chance before changing chippy :)

Our order was ready for us to collect on time, spot on,the team at Wessingtons were so very obliging and helpful and our fish and chip meal was thoroughly enjoyed by us all. Would certainly recommend this chippy. Thank you... More

Wessington Chip Shop has had a deserved reputation for a number of years for its limited opening hours but... when it is open... it's a must to go and get the take-away fish and chips! The reputation is still valid. We went to get takeaways to carry back to where we were staying on a Thursday night in the summer... More

We stopped off for fish & chips while visiting the area and what a treat!! I think the queues of folk waiting [on a Thursday evening!!] said it all. We sampled freshly fried fish & chips...they were piping hot, fresh & not at all 'greasy'. I can honestly say that they were the best & freshest fish & chips we... More
