Dear Mike R, It's very upsetting when a customer posts 2 reviews like this, within the same week. If you feel your review, is hand on heart correct, please call in to the shop anytime. I would like the chance, to speak to you in person. More

OMG - where do I begin? Ignorant management, bad service, terrible overpriced food and that's just the beginning. The portion sizes are way to big for my liking, and the chips are massive, not like a proper fish and chip shop should be. The arrogant management seem to be working as if they are in a coma, and you get... More

Dear Steven Maoudis, It's very upsetting, when a customer posts such a review. Especially when the customer doesn't point out a problem immediately, so we have the chance for correction. Your review states that the service was terrible and the food was over priced. I need to remind you that, this is a traditional fish and chip shop which is,... More

I have previously eaten here before and enjoyed it, but not this time. I suspect that it has changed hands as before I remember the staff being courteous and friendly, the staff at present are sullen and it was real effort for them to actually acknowledge us. The "cod and chips" is not exactly cheap at £7.40 and one has... More

Our restaurant has always been self service and the menus, have always been displayed on menu boards above the open kitchen. Also, our prices have been the same for past two years. Our members of...

This is a very popular fish and chip restaurant and gets very busy at certain times. With outside tables that overlook Bancroft Gardens and the RSC it's a great place to watch the world go by, Inside the tables are a bit transport cafe but don't let that put you off. The service is polite. The food freshly cooked and... More

Well, I think the title I wrote says it all, avoid this place if you can. I'm sure there are better fish-and-chips and more economical places in town. Food is tasteless, greasy and the service is bad.

We were in Stratford over the August bank hol and this chip shop had a permanent queue outside. Because of this we decided to try a takeaway later in the week. It was fine, obviously just so busy as it was the holidays. Fair price for fair food!

Not a warm welcome from the stoic faced staff member serving up the food. The fish and chips were ok but nothing special, the chips were thin and soft, the fish pretty tasteless. The portions were a good size but I don't agree with having to pay for sauce (5p per sachet) or drinking out of a polystyrene cup in... More
