Excellent Fish and chips combined with responsive customer service. There is also free and accessible car parking at the front of the shop to save you driving round and round to get a car spot. When our family comes to us - they only want to go to Aragon so they have out of town fans in our family as... More

Second week running I have enjoyed a very good meal. Only downside is that they are only open on Thursday and Friday in the evening but I suppose that is better for my figure.

This is a great little place for fish and chips; the queue will testify to this (the first time I went, I waited for 30 minutes!) The fish is superb and the chips taste great. It is a real family concern. The only issue is it only opens for about 15 hours per week!

Thank you for your kind words - with queues like that we don't have the energy for more openings!!! The labour intensive prep means that we do actually do a 50-60 hour week each.....😂 More

Tucked away on a side street, this is the best fish and chips in Knaresborough. We go every week for take-out. The owners are very friendly and there is always a bit of a line, but that just tells you how good it is. The line is never too long and your meal is cooked to order.

Not to be beaten. Really look forward to my regular Friday night treat. Don't normally write reviews but Aragon deserve to have some of my time in return for their great food and customer service. Now can I have bigger portions Brian? Ha Ha.

The very best fish and chips anywhere, including the east coast. They are cooked to order perfectly and the couple who own the shop couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Have been 3 times now and we will definitely be going there in the future. Cannot be bettered!!!

This chippy had good reviews and the shop was full of customers people who had walked there and drivers who were blocking the narrow street, all I can think about these customer reviews is that they like very greasy fish and chips, soggy batter on their quite dry fish. The food is cooked in dripping, the best, but the wrappings... More

We've had some good fish and chips this year and after last year, Aragon had something to live up to. We were not disappointed. More haddock and chips...fish good and the chips in my opinion were best that we have had. Cannot fault the prices and you'll do well to get better fish and chips for under a fiver. Nice... More

Always excellently fried and friendly service. The best in town by an absolute mile. I can't believe the reviews saying the fish is overcooked and frankly I don't believe them. Having been brought up in a family of fish merchants in Grimsby, their fish and chips is as good as many of the decent places there.

Asked for Haddock and chips and was suprised to find id been given cod.The Fish wasnt fresh and had been in the warmer too long.The batter was far too thick and sickly.Suprised by this as last time we had fish and chips they were very good.

Thank Duncan W
Brian C, Owner at Aragon Fisheries, responded to this review

Thanks for your review Duncan. As we only cook to order I'm very surprised you say you got cod if you asked for haddock. Especially as we do much less cod than haddock. Please feel free to come back so we can make amends. Regards Brian and Sally More
