Visited here on a quick visit to Carlisle. The shop is a few minutes from the train station. The food was lovely, huge portions, excellent value!

This was one of the freshly made and best chippy, in my opinion, to have had. The batter wasn't soggy nor too floury. The fish was not dry either but cooked to almost perfection. The service was second to none. Well done!

On 25th July 2017, I visited Home and Away. I had fish and chips with a few batter bits to take away. Total cost £5.00. I had to wait for the fish to be freshly cooked for me, so I knew it'd be fresh. A...More

When we arrive by train, this is our first thought for good food. Today we both had haggis and chips and the haggis was best we have ever tried. Service is excellent and friendly and prices reasonable. We shall return.

I have been going to this fish and chip shop for years, every visit to be truthful. You'd have to go a long way to better this place

Very good chippy very close to the station and whether you go at lunchtime or late at night the chips are the best in town and there is a great choice of food on offer

Got the battered haggis freshly cooked and another meal was the chicken pie both with small chips as t portions are very large. Never been to Carlisle before but worth returning purely for the haggis even on a rainy day.

Nice little fish & chip shop with a couple of tables inside, and open on a Sunday. Great chips, tasty Cumberland sausage and friendly service. What more do you want?

We have eaten here many times when arriving at Carlisle station. You can eat inside or take away. We have had Haggis and Chips, and Fish and Chips. Both are always excellent. A basic chip shop but good at what it does.

this is one of the best of many chip shops in the town centre and allways delivers good quality across the board on all its food and there are seats inside if you want to eat in although only 3/4
