I called into the Wee Chippy to avoid the queues at the more popular chip shop. I should have known that there would be a reason why the others are more popular. I was served by a fairly non-communicative teenager, who spoke to none of the waiting customers. One of the customers attempted a conversation and was met with one... More

We ordered 2 fish suppers which are freshly cooked to order. They were superb! one fish supper would have been ample for my husband and I to share. We make the same mistake every year when we go back for this treat.

I have been visiting the wee chippie since it opened since I have a holiday in Anstruther or the surrounding area each year. The Anstruther fish bar tends to get all the glory but the wee chippie, in my opinion has better tasting fish. It is always perfectly cooked and I have never had any problems with my orders despite... More

So we were heading to St. Andrews for a night and my friend said (who is a chef!), if you're heading up that way, you have to stop in Anstruther for a fish supper. Now I'm not really mad keen on fish suppers normally but I thought, on her advice, I'll give it a shot. Wow. My boyfriend and I... More

After a long drive up neither of us could be bothered cooking on the 1st night of our break, been here a few times over the last 5 years. Always spot on, battered haggis chips & curry sauce for myself. Partner had fish chips & peas, a lot of people say you must go to anstruther fish bar. Not for... More

We were really disappointed with our food from The Wee Chippy but from looking at other reviews we maybe just had an off day. The chips weren't nice at all, just tasted odd. The burger didn't come with cheese as requested. The gravy was just like water. The macaroni cheese nuggets were very tasty though! After our experience tonight we... More

Simply the best fish n' chips in the kingdom. I say the kingdom as I'm a aware I said the same about Nobles in leith a couple of weeks ago. And it's a close run thing. Superb fresh flaking fish with lashings of salt and vinegar. Crispy light batter on the fish and superb chips. Fantastic!!!

There were so many reviews about chippies in Anstruther we didn't know for which one we should go, smile. We have chosen this one because of the location and outside sitting space. We didn't regret it - quick and friendly service and a tasty & decent portion of fish and chips with mushy pees. Would come back any time to... More
