Had takeaway fish and chips from here on a visit to Christchurch; very good indeed, batter was light and crispy, fish tasted beautiful, standard chips portion was very generous and the chips tasted great. Service with a smile from two girls in uniform and straw boaters, all good just a shame we live so far away...

After a day in Bournemouth we wanted to have fish and chips. As we are GF we googled Browns and decided to drive few miles to Christchurch. It was a good decision.

Really nice local fish and chip shop that also serves gluten free on request. The fish is always fresh and the chips properly cooked which is a refreshing change from some of the others around here. There is always a queue out the door, which in my mind is the sign of a good chippy
