Read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided it was a must try. We have to say the reviews were right on the money. The fish is simply to die for !! Lovely fluffy fish in a crisp light batter and freshly made to order to boot ! If your in Peebles, try it !

As well as the usual chippy food, they do half portions for a number of items. The service is fast and friendly. Prices are reasonable.

It's great. Tables to eat in if you want...a great fish supper with fresh tasty fish in light crunchy batter. Just what the doctor ordered! I'm going back!

Fresh fish cooked to order, what more can you ask. You can eat here too although I never have. Efficient staff (needed because it is very popular)

Love the fish and chips from here, the crispy batter is to die for. Nice wee cafe to the side where you can get a lovely sit down tea with bread and butter and a pot of tea to go with it, Quick service and nice fresh food.

We always enjoy the freshly cooked fish and chips, choice of mushy peas, beans or salad Served with fresh tea or coffee and bread and butter. I find a Mini Tea fills me! Excellent value.

Had a sit-in fish supper and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The substantial pieces of haddock were very well cooked with a light, crispy batter and the accompanying chips, peas and curry sauce were all decent. Friendly service and reasonable value. NB: when we visited, the sit in restaurant closed for business at 8 o'clock.

Never been disappointed with the quality of food served here, a small dining room, next door to the take-out, always had good, polite and efficient service on our visits to 'Jim Jack's'
