OK, it has been a year since I reviewed this Fish and Chip take-away/restaurant, so it needed a re-write, It hasn't changed, the best fish I have tasted in a take away. Always freshly cooked in clean oil and never greasy. Chips in gargantuan portions, again not greasy. The best fish and chips anywhere. I have never eaten in the... More

I find increasingly that you don't get good fish and chips in fish and chip shops. They are usually soggy and/or brown. I don't know if its because they use different oils now, or don't cook them as long or whatever. Therefore I would usually prefer to order fish and chips from a pub or somewhere like that. Anyway, popped... More

Excellent F&C, but why does it take so long when there's a very obvious menu? At least cook sufficient chips in advance. Waiting 15 minutes is ridiculous.

Had takeaway from Oysters fish bar today for the first time and was not disappointed. Chips were good they were not greasy and had a good flavour. We had a steak and kidney and mince beef pie both were very hot and as you would expect from Pukka pies good quality. Cost was average at £9.20. Would definitely return.

Couldn't fault the service or food. Everybody was friendly & polite - eager to please. Food was fabulous, huge portions, well cooked & presented. It's great to be able to support a local business x

Came here with my daughter and my wife's niece from Brasil so she could experience our traditional dish of fish and chips. Wouldn't consider bringing her to anywhere else in Braintree. As always the fish was fresh and perfectly cooked. Always more than enough chips and the curry sauce was divine. My daughter went for the chicken nuggets and chips... More
