Fish and chips should be easy in the U.K. - this place is one of the worst places I've ever eaten at. My burger was a joke - tesco roll, cheap crappy meat, no salad, slapped in there with no care!!! Avoid this place

The food from here has always been good and we have always enjoyed the fish. Not really a great deal you can say about Smiths but so far we have not been disappointed.

Always a warm welcome and a decent quality meal from Smiths. Us Northerners like our fish with the 'skin off' and we always get our wish granted without a grumble. Portion size good too

I've eaten here so many times that when we walk in the door they start cooking two haddock and bring the cokes. Lovely fish and chips and friendly, efficient staff. Always willing to cook fresh too.

Always go here as the fish is excellent and the chips old style, like when you were growing up. You can eat in or take away try the pies or savaloy, the best around.
