We had a takeaway from The Dolphin in late January and really enjoyed them. The chips were hot, fresh and very tasty and the sausage and scampi were also good. Big portions too so would come back and use this chip shop if in the area.

Three of us visited here while working in the area, black pudding supper was quite tasty with only a few chips, the other lads both had fish suppers which they said were awful, one had gravy which was bisto.

So background, I grew up the son of a truck driver. Spent most of my childhood in that truck and travelled all over. Chip shops and truck shops along with a good bakery for a pie were a staple. This is the best chip shop I've ever been to and luckily it's the local. I'll happily drive 15 minutes past... More

Chips were old and the fish was greasy and tasteless! Not cheap for something we threw in the bucket. So many nice take aways in Nairn shame this meal was so disappointing.

I must say that I am not a chippy(french fry) person). But I must say that this place has some of the best chips in have tasted in a very long time. My four year old son tends to agree as he has a palate for such tasty food. Well done. Keep up the good work.
