Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not a great experience. We were seduced by the restaurant area as we fancied eating in. However, this really is just a few tables where you can eat your takeaway in disposable packaging with disposable forks after ordering it at the counter. With a bit...of thought this could be turned into a real asset and consequently offer better value. Services bordered on unhelpful and whilst the quality of the food was quite good it felt quite expensive. All in all, not great.More

Very good , first class fish and chips, could up the ante with sit in, tea bread and butter and a better customer experience in service would make me return.

Wonderfully classic fish and chips. The restaurant has burgers and chicken as well. Service was fast while having fresh cooked food. Friendly service.

Have ordered from here many times and the food is really good. Unfortunately tonight the service was absolutely dreadful. Ordered online at 6.05 pm. It said order would be ready at 6.18pm. Went to collect it and was told collection time is only an estimate...finally got it at 7.20pm!!! Eventually the girl asked if I’d ordered online and went to till and produced an order so obviously our order had been lost but she denied this. They really should not keep taking orders when they cannot cope with them. It’s such a shame because the food was really good but waiting time was insaneMore

Great traditional fish and chips with large portions and great service. Bushmills has a number of Fish and Chip shops and the Hip Chip is one of the best.

The chips purchased this evening were the WORST chips I have ever tasted. If they were fresh I will be amazed. Hard, dry, dark and hours old. They were expensive . The portion was questionable too. How you can justify the price to the portion...size defies mathematics.The best part of my chip butty was the bread. I live in London and pay London prices and I was mugged off in Northern Ireland. Perhaps we were given sloppy leftovers due to our accentMore

my family and I have been going to the hip chip for years and recently the food has been horrible. We aren’t very impressed as we always look forward to getting a chippy with yourselves. We have never normally had a problem with the food...but recently it’s been awful!😡More

Missing chip from order. Cod supper fish or black greasy batter not fully cooked. Thick glarry batter the shape of fish with little fish content. Nothing crispy about it. Gave the cod supper back to the very nice driver as well as the chip he...delivered short from my order to return to the chippy owner who cooked the cod supper. Owner said there was nothing wrong with the cod supper (see photos) he cooked. Refused to refund. Had good suppers previously (might depend whos cooking them, could be hit or miss) No gimmicks like "Award winning fish suppers" used back in the day to sell them. All word of mouth and customers were respected for their custom. If owner had been reasonable I may not have wrote this review.More

Tried to do an online order. Soon as I started I realised it was set up for collection and not delivery. I phoned them immediately to correct the order and the delivery time but they said they had started to cook rhe fish and it...would be ready right away. Then they said that delivery would take about half an hour. As a result our fish and chips were delivered and both the fish and the chips were really soggy. Would not recommend as food not great and no flexibility with cooking or delivery time.More

Absolute disgrace of a hole. Never get an order right and 90% of the time cold. Delivery driver one of the most ignorant people to work with the public (barring the owner). When you ring to tell them about wrong/missing orders the owner gives you...a mouthful of cheek then shouts “you’re barred” and hangs up on you. Concentrate more on the food the customers are paying for and less on trying to make yourself look like some sort of local “celeb”. Disgusted wouldn’t be the word! And for the record I NEVER leave bad reviews for anywhere, normally either leave good reviews or not at all.More
