Parking > some on road and a car park just 80m down the road Decor > it's blue and white and old in style and the restuarant is quite small and cramped. Staff > very polite and helpful. Food > good to very good ... Locally sourced apparently although i cannot verify that and easily the freshest best cooked chips... More

Visited Ossies with our toddler and dog. Cannot fault the place. We were able to sit outside with our dog, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Fish is so fresh and excellent value. The staff are so welcoming and friendly - especially Elle! We will be making a point to visit here again next time we visit Whitstable!

What more could you want? Fresh fish and chips, super friendly staff, always a cue which is a good sign, and no matter how busy it gets the staff always greet with a smile, and consistently excellent fish and chips. A firm family fave for us!

Always good meals. Takeaways good too. Staff always friendly and helpful. Restraunt is licensed so you can have a drink with your meal.

Not great, have had much nicer fish and chips. A lot of green chips (in three servings there were at least two green chips in each). My husband's fish was not de-boned, presumably not intentionally. I wouldn't go back.

£5.50 regular fish n chips...lovely crispy batter, perfectly cooked fish..not dry. Regular fish was equivalent to large elsewhere. Great value..worth waiting for 8 servings freshly cooked.

Our first family day trip with new baby, we went to Tankerton Beach and fancied some fish and chips. We were served quickly and the food was yummy. Ossie's is only a short walk from the beach. Ossie's has two options, take away or the eat in restaurant. We took our food to the beach.

My son was holding a wine & wisdom evening raising money for his London Marathon run. I approached Ossie's fish and chips as we always use them. Love them for their friendly service and always super fish & chips. I asked if we could do a deal to provide for up to 100 people on the night. A good price... More

food was okay, the big and very unnecessary problem with the visit was asking for a burger with no chips only to hear the cook complaining "who orders burger and no chips?" in a very annoyed voice. Ossies, I think you need to work on your customer service. Now use the Blue Marlin fish bar up the road, much better... More

On our first visit to Whitstable we looked for a fish and chip restaurant and found Ossie's. The restaurant was busy and initially we had to sit at different tables. Service was slow as the food was cooked to order and there were many customers. People moved and we were able to move to a bigger table. I had haddock... More
