Thank you so much for your review. We have lots of gluten free options and are getting more vegetarian and vegan options as well. Hard to please everyone but we sure try!! Glad you enjoyed your visit and the milkshake too. Thanks again.

Thank you for your review. We like to have a gentle tasting batter so as not to overpower the flavour of the fish. We observed that with most people, they seem to like to squeeze the fresh wedge of lemon on their fish, or use...More

The Chippery is a good place for small gatherings to get together and share a coffee, snack or a meal. Menu is not outstanding and the food is about average.
