The fish and chips here are first class. They staff are all brilliant and it’s always busy which is a sure sign of a great place. Wouldn’t go anywhere else for fish and chips!

Have never had a bad meal or bad service ever. We brought our children when they were young and now our grandchildren come too. Highly recommended.

I'm not saying other places are bad in Bournemouth, but Chez Fred is another level. Cleanliness is top. The fish is cooked to perfection and the chips, the chips are perfect and unlimited :)

I never have, if it is busy they ask you to wait in the reception area and take your name. They come back to you when your table is ready, 5min last time. Remember it is popular because it has a good reputation! Enjoy.
