The Big Fish provides what every is missing, a chance to sit and eat in. We live in Macclesfield but we travel to Wilmslow because the chippy is that good. Well worth trying whether you're taking away or taking the time to sit in.

Two friends and I arranged to meet at The Big Fish last week. We had such a lovely time. It is spotlessly clean and the the fish and chips were delicious. we ate in and ended up staying about two hours enjoying our meals and two pots of tea. the couple on the next table had taken wine with them....

Always go to a busy chippy, this is a case in point. Great chips, peas, curry. The fish is also great and unlike other chippys in the area, they cook the fish in advance! None of this cook to order rubbish you get at other places. The fish tastes great too, the servers are fast, and the staff friendly. Recommended.

Eaten here many times. Always busy so the food is fresh and crispy and the cod always snow white worth the wait on Fridays when they are busy. they now do gluten free Monday which is a bonus for my daughter 👍🏻

Can't beat the fish and chips at this place in this country. Staff are friendly too. I've seen people who travelled more than 20 minutes to get to The Big Fish so it's best local chippie for more than 10 miles range!

Simply the best fish and chips in Cheshire and the surrounding area. Also the most friendliest staff too.

This is an amazing chippy. Won loads of awards and obvious why. Best fish around. Best in north West. When anyone comes to stay one of the evening meals has to be from our chippy.
