We always go to Chez Fred's when visiting Bournemouth, it's fish and chip heaven! You can't book in advance, you just turn up, give your name and wait for a table. The longest we have waited is forty five minutes. The food is well worth waiting for and has a selection of specials as well as the standard menu. We... More

My husband and I always hear great things about chez Fred, and so tonight we decided to try it out. We had such friendly service from a chap who gave us eye contact and was extremely polite. The place is spotless and has such a great vibe. The fish and chips were delicious. It tasted fresh and wasn't too heavy.... More

My wife and I partake of Fish and Chip meals at this restaurant approx fortnightly. Prior to Oct 2014 Chez Fred was excellent. At that time it was more takeaway with a small restaurant at the rear. It was closed between Oct - Dec 2014 for extending into next property which was owned by Chez Fred. It was completely refurbished... More

Unlimited chips a friendly smile and polite service best fish and chips in... More

We have enjoyed Takeaway Fish and Chips from Chez Fred for the past decades.The fish is perfectly cooked and the chips double fried to our request as I enjoy crispy chips. The portions are wholesome and a joy to be attended by smiling faces. The premises are refurbished, as we are fairly local we have not dined there. I do... More

We had high expectations here and were not disappointed. My haddock in batter with chips was really nice and at £8.50, about the same price as cod. The service was good, the staff friendly, no complaints. Would we come again? Sure.

This is our second visit. The first was very good, but this time, possibly due to it being slightly less busy, it was even better. (Sunday) From the meet n greet at the door, to us leaving, the service was exceptional. Clearly staff are trained well. The fish and chips are so delicious. A very short wait and 'wow' a... More
