Best chips ever - chunky, flavoursome potatoes, and not greasy. Fresh fish cooked to order so may wait a few minutes. Option to have fish poached which came with black pepper and lemon and was lovely and healthy. Homemade mushy peas very nice. Friendly staff. Very handy as we passed it as we were leaving Lincoln after a day trip... More

Visited while staying with our friend in Lincoln - She always visits when the opportunity arises! Great award winning Fish and Chips, we had the senior citizen specials which we found very good, The car park is a small one, but road parking a short distance away was OK.

Fish and chips are excellent here. We ate in the restaurant part which is simple but nice. My only criticism would be the very small portion of ketchup they provide in a dish upon request... This always results in having to ask for multiple extra servings. Why can't the ketchup be on the table along with the vinegar and salt?!?

Passing by so thought we would give this award winning chippy a go. Nice rustic restaurant clean tidy with friendly staff. On arrival the fish quoted as small was larger than we anticipated. A lovely coating but the haddock just lacked texture, chips delicious with mushy peas side slice of bread and butter. Again good value but not what we... More

Guess what ? On hearing how splendid this chip shop was I travelled on a whim from my home in Sunderland to sample some. After a 5 hour journey I arrived at Burton Road chip shop in Lincoln at 9.30pm on a snowy January evening. The taciturn youth who served me with my bag of piping hot chips pointed me... More

Read the reviews on here so as I was back in Lincoln to visit family paid a visit and I was. Very glad I did . From the start the service was very friendly and helpful, I find that if I am polite and friendly people will reciprocate and this was no exception. The meal was the Large haddock and... More

We decided to have a walk up to the chip shop as it's meant to be one of the best chip shops. I have to say we were not disappointed. I had sausage and chips which is rare for me but it was fantastic, thoroughly enjoyed the food, it was hot and fresh and was not too greasy. Couldn't recommend... More
