Cooked to order Poseidon is by far the best chippy I've ever visited! HUGE fish cooked to order, gorgeous chips, friendly staff and fair prices. Constantly busy, this place is popular with the locals which says it all.

Love the Poseidon; huge portions, freshly cooked, efficient service and plenty of choice; you can tell how good this place is by the length of the queues.

One of the best fish and chip shops I've been in .its not cheap but the quality of food is superb the staff are very professional and quick even the kebabs are great size of the fish can only be said to be a battered whale easily big enough for two.

This place never changes its quality for food . In fact I think its improving even further. The queue,s outside say it all. Best fish shop and staff for miles around. Keep it up.

I had high expectations when I arrived to find a queue along the pavement. I wasn't disappointed-fish was huge, really moist with lovely crisp batter that wasn't too thick and heavy; chips were crisp and not too greasy and the peas were tasty. Despite being very busy the service was very efficient. This is a fab chippy.

We always go here as it does the best fish and chips in the area. Usually a bit of a queue, however it's well worth the wait. Decent sized portions too, me and the missus usually share a chips with fish each. I don't share the pot of curry though

I think this place is pretty good but not the best in Sheffield. I like to judge a chippy on their chips mainly so I had a tray of small chips and mushy peas. The peas were OK, actually tasted sweet oddly enough... The chips were nice and chunky, but a little greasy for my tastes. I've been to other... More
