Always freshly cooked and generous portions, with cheerful staff. We often find that one large fish is enough for two! They have various size portions of chips, so you need never have too much or too little.

I'd love to give this place top marks, sadly, it doesn't merit it yet. Tried this in the spring last year and it was quite poor for a chip shop, tried again in the summer, still wasn't enjoyable. Window dressing was amazing Christmas and Valentine's and rumours of new ownership. Tried it again recently and still room for improvement. The... More

There were four people behind the counter on the night I visited; perhaps they were expecting a mad rush but when I ordered Battered Sausage & Chips with Salt & Vinegar to take away, I was the only customer there. In hindsight, perhaps I should have watched them cook and pack what I had ordered but I didn't, instead I... More

We are always very upset to hear negative feedback about our establishment as we always try to provide the very best products and service. Not being informed about the problem on the day it is difficult to explain what happened. Staff are trained to read back an order on taking it, and again when the meal is given to the... More

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.

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.
