Great food at a decent price. It's always where my wife wants to go after heading to the park when we're in Sheffield. Super friendly staff and fast service.

Had lunch special and fish. Chip portion very generous and fish size good. But too much grease came with fish and made batter soggy.

So disappointed, literally the worst food ever! Granted, they were very busy. But the chips barely had a skin on them, and were dripping in grease. The fish batter was sloppy, and dripping in grease. The mushy peas were tastless! Needless to say I won't be re visiting

It's always been clean, friendly and decent fish and chips, favourable compared to rest of Sheff. My wife was unsure about the fishcake but that could be a regional thing, new to the north she is.

I've been a customer of the Abbey Friar for many years now and although it's not the cheapest it does ( in my opinion ) the best fish and chips in Sheffield. You get what you pay for when it comes to quality.

I've been using abbey friar for years but recently within the last year the quality is been hit and miss sometimes the chips don't taste right they feel and taste undercooked hard not like chips should be but then sometimes it's great and couldn't be better!

I'm originally from Grimsby so finding somewhere that is as good as a chippy back home is hard. After visiting 'two steps fisheries' a few weekends ago I was very disappointed and was desperate to find somewhere that cooked proper chips and fresh Haddock. We found Abbey Friar on Trip Advisor and as its nearby we thought wed give it... More

OK so quite a claim I know. This chippy is about 5 miles away from me and so I don't frequent it as often as I would were it closer. That said, every time I do go I am reminded of why I tell people it's the best fish and chips anywhere. The batter is always really crisp and light... More
