I always pop in to smiffys when in the area or on my way home to Cheshire from Inverness , it looks like it's had a makeover or change of owner but fish n chips are still excellent and proper mushy peas not from a tin !!! I do think they could offer a plated service if sitting in for... More

Lovely takeaway meal from here, very generous portions and my son said he had the best chicken nuggets ever! Will be back in October for another visit.

This is the third time we've been to Smiffys over 6 months and each time it's lived up to our first visit. I had fishcakes( home made ) and my husband had scampi - which he loved. There is no greasiness and the chips are also real, tasty and generously portioned. Service is friendly, restaurant clean and family friendly. Toilets... More

Visited on a Saturday evening (25th March 2017) can have a sit down meal. Bit pricey but..... food was served fresh and hot and very enjoyable. Staff friendly and chatty and the burger bun was the freshest iv ever had as if it had just come out of the oven. I got ketchup all over my hands and was invited... More

Popped in for a sit down 'takeaway' nice service (helpful suggestions). Lovely clean, warm and comfortable environment. Food brought to us on disposable plates rather than in boxes 😊 Both meals were lovely tasting, portions good sized but not excessive. Very competitive prices. Good choice of condiments with no extra charge. All round nice experience. Worth a visit

Fish and chips freshly cooked in crisp batter (skin-off fish) with plenty of side dishes. Smart interior and good service. All that a fish and chip shop should be.

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I can only conclude we went in on an off day. My wife and I had Haddock, Chips and peas. The Haddock was a thin cut with little taste and coated in soggy batter. The chips were average, with the Mushy Peas being the best part of the meal. A bit pricey for... More

We visited late afternoon last week. Had to wait far too long (25mins) for 3 basic take away meals. Good was just ok, which was disappointing. Also very expensive. Next time we are in Aviemore we will try the other chip shop.

I decided to try Smiffy's as I couldn't get stopped off elsewhere, which I'm glad to have done as I feel I've found a great place to eat if I ever find myself in Aviemore again. I'm rather picky when it comes to food and this place has not disappointed. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for a tasty fish,... More

Best fish n chips I have had in a long while all cooked to order good service. Would have given five stars but my daughter's order was missed.
