Whilst visiting my mum recently, we decided to have fish & chips one evening so thought that we would give the 'Minnis Bay' chippy a go. I had a large cod and chips. It was a wonderful piece of fish, perfectly cooked for me and a portion of chips large enough to share between two with a few left over.... More

Taken by surprise that a school friend visiting from New York desired 'fish and chips,' I was at a loss to know where to take her! Especially as I have not eaten them in years. Thus upon advice from a Birchington 'local' we decided on the above named take away. We were surprised to see that that you could eat... More

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.

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
