Can't believe that in 2016 a retail outlet doesn't take card payments of any kind? Then to come up with the excuse "it costs us a fortune" as in a hurry and wanting to get home, asked what was ready to go was told medium cod, great 2 fish and a portion of chips fifteen minutes later after asking twice...

Thank you for taking the time to review us we are always pleased to hear our customers feedback. We are unsure if this review is intended for us as we do take card payments, and in no combination does 2 pieces of fish and 1 portion of chips come to £11.50. Hopefully we have not been confused with another eating... More

This is by far the best fish and chip shop around. I have yet to be disappointed. Every time they come up trumps! Lovely fish, excellent batter.....crisp, light and golden. Wonderful chips. Freshly cooked, quick turnover which means they're not left under heaters to go soggy.

Went in for something to eat. Saveloy and chips. Waited an age whilst servers argued who was serving what. When left Saveloy was OK but chips where well under cooked. Too late to take back as had driven off.

We have been forced to take on new staff and unfortunately things do go wrong during the training process. We can only apologies and of course we would have happily rectified the issue if you had returned.... More

I asked for a saveloy and chips. I paid and was then informed I'd have to wait a few minutes for fresh chips. I had to wait 6 minutes and then left with my food. When I got home I opened the paper to find a saveloy and a smaller than average portion of chips for the price. I ate... More

A great addition to Birchington. Fish fresh and cooked really well. I don't like skin on so I just give them a call and they cook me a skinless piece of fish. Never greasy and lovely light batter too. Service always friendly

Thomas Cook Airways, minimal legroom, mediocre service. Very little choice of foodstuff. Late departures in both directions

We went for a family tea and had the Minnis Mini fish & chips and it was delicious! We'd been looking forward to it all day and it didn't disappoint. The batter was light and crispy and the chips were very well cooked. Every time I visit my Mum we always make sure we make time for fish & chips... More
