I was there for takeaway fish and chips. I can't fault the quality of the food. Fish was very fresh and the chips tasted really good. There are car parks adjacent to the restaurant. Staff were friendly. Price was reasonably cheap. I would recommend this place if you are in the area.

We've been going to Olivers about once every two months or so for over 10 years now. Never fails to disappoint. Staff are unfailingly polite and helpful and the fish and chips are always tasty, hot and fresh. Love the place, especially the ceiling Muriel (as Hilda Ogden would say).

A Saturday evening treat from one of Basingstoke's finest fish and chip shops. Extremely busy as can be expected for a Saturday evening and we were kindly offered a can to compensate for our wait aswell as a apology which is as thoughtful. We realised we had a curry sauce missing and a extra mushy peas portion once we got... More

£1.90 for a sausage. Prices for takeaway are so out of touch. Didn't even bother. Other places are 25/30% cheaper

booked a table in the restaurant for 7 people on a Saturday lunchtime, and even though we had to change the time of booking 3 times, there was no problem as family were travelling via 3 motorways!, and Oliver's staff were very understanding and accommodating. The food for all 7 of us was delicious, well cooked and presented and all... More

Managed to book a table at the last minute on Mothering Sunday. Olivers were very helpful in getting us fitted in .We were told that if we arrived a little earlier (12.15 pm) they could manage it as long as we were done by 1.45pm. The food and overall atmoshere was very good with the tables not being too close... More

Was massively surprised with how good this chippy is. The batter on the fish was immense, and I'm very fussy. Cod was really tasty chips cooked perfectly. Will definitely be returning again soon. Well done guys.

Can't fault the friendly staff. Does get busy on Fridays. Can sometimes wait for a little longer when there's a big queue BUT it's worth it. We sometimes go to the restaurant area and the food is very freshly made, waitress staff very polite and speedy. It's a regular haunt.

Ordered two large cod and a large chips for our sons, I have never seen such a "small" large cod portion, I hate to think what the small portion was. The large chips was equally disappointing, this used to be an excellent place and what we had tasted good but very poor value for money for size of meal. You... More

We've recently moved to basingstoke. Were looking for a decent chippy and heard this was the best in area. It didn't dissapoint! Be careful going on a Friday as we did... The queue was very far out the door! You can see how popular it is by how busy the place gets! Anyway it was reasonably priced, the chips were... More
