Visited with a friend who is gluten intolerant, because I'd been told this is a gluten free chip shop. This was a Saturday evening and when placing the order we were told that it's only gluten free on a Tuesday and Thursday! What is the point in advertising that you are gluten free, if it's only on nights when most... More

We were passing through Shrewsbury and on the strength of some of the reviews on here decided to call in for some chips, we even waited half an hour for it to open! Why did we bother? Chips were very greasy and there seemed to be more batter bits than chips. Curry sauce was the runniest I've ever had and... More

Love the food here and it is great quality. The food isn't greasy and the kebabs are beautiful. None of the orders get mixed up here and they always have savaloys ready. Great food quality. Recommended.

I remember the holidays near the coast when cod was fresh creamy and white. The connoisseurs in the family always saying you won't beat the fish from Whitby. To be fair I've always agreed... Now though I've found the perfect fish in this landlocked town of Shrewsbury!! There are several good fish and chip shops in the town but this... More

As the title says, fish and chips ok but nothing to rave about. Staff were very pleasant. Monkmoor fish bar is much better

Went there yesterday (Thursday evening). Was served soggy old cod. Fish tasted good but that's it. Chips portion just ok. A bit surprised at reading the reviews. Very disappointed. Will not go back for a second helping.

This is a very friendly shop that serves good quality fish and chips and is glowingly clean. I would especially recommend their fish cooked without batter. Good quality fish and generous portions. The best in Shrewsbury by a very long margin.
