We used to think that Deal was the place for best fish and chips but Papas in Sandwich has overtaken them. Fresh sweet chunky cod and chips that are not soggy or overdone. Great value and they even have great house wine to boot! Can eat in or outside. Portions are generous; I would say medium is adequate even for... More

We came across this little gem purely by accident. People may think that its just fish and chips but this place serves the best fish and chips I have had in years and at the age of 48 I have been around for a few. Everything was cooked to order with the chips being crisp to the bite but soft... More

They go that extra mile to make sure you enjoy your fish and chips especially if you eat in. The staff are lovely and can't do enough for you. As for the fish and chips, delicious.

Had lunch takeaway from this lovely and charming fish and chip shop. It was excellent value and delicious - best fish and chips I've had in some time. Had to wait a few minutes for it to be cooked but it was well worth the wait and didn't seem that long. Generous portion of fresh and fleshy cod and expertly... More

There are three fish and chips shops in Sandwich but this one tops them all. Consistently great. The batter is lovely and ends up just the right mix of soft and crisp. Chips are thrice fried and that makes them delicious. Not to be missed.
