We go to this chip shop every few weeks for a Friday treat but tonight it was disappointing. The batter on the fish was under cooked and soggy. The chips were not as nice as normal. Maybe an off night? Will give them another chance before changing chippy :)

Our family party of 17 stayed in the area, weekend of 28 October 2016. We pre-ordered a few days before. Our order was ready for us to collect on time, spot on,the team at Wessingtons were so very obliging and helpful and our fish and chip meal was thoroughly enjoyed by us all. Would certainly recommend this chippy. Thank you... More

Wessington Chip Shop has had a deserved reputation for a number of years for its limited opening hours but... when it is open... it's a must to go and get the take-away fish and chips! The reputation is still valid. We went to get takeaways to carry back to where we were staying on a Thursday night in the summer... More

We stopped off for fish & chips while visiting the area and what a treat!! I think the queues of folk waiting [on a Thursday evening!!] said it all. We sampled freshly fried fish & chips...they were piping hot, fresh & not at all 'greasy'. I can honestly say that they were the best & freshest fish & chips we... More

After trying to get into a local pub for a meal we gave up and decided on a visit to this chippy. What a great choice. We were staying at a caravan site nearby and could not be bothered to cook for ourselves and we're looking for good food. The whole experience from start to finish was good. Serving the... More

Nice little chippy. Has limited opening hours but when it is open its worth a stop. Food is nice and prices are good. There's ample parking outside on the road. Recommended.

About my visit on Friday, 22nd July 2016, at around 17:30. I had a Fish meal with Curry sauce. It was, without exaggeration, an absolutely delicious meal served by people who are happy, polite, and helpful. Can I appeal to the owner to consider a more "Home-made", more individual type of Fish cake in addition to the more common type?

Hi, Thank you for your review. We have tried homemade fishcakes in the past, however; due to our popularity I unfortunately can't spare the extra time for frying these, as that would slow down service. The fishcakes we do are extremely popular and well recieved so I would rather spend my time making sure the fish are fried to perfection.... More

Hi, sorry for the delay in responding to your review, it has been a very busy summer. I am sorry that you felt you were treated rudely, however I feel part of this may of been a mistunderstanding. We do wrap all our fish seperately from chips "unless requested otherwise", there is a sign that clearly states this next to... More
