Good old fish and chips, not the best I have ever had but quite good. They have a cafe attached to the shop.

The food here is very cheap, and is is served very quickly. The staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome. Discussion with the waitress turned into a long litany of what was not available. No haddock, no plaice, no hake, no rag pudding, no baked beans (!). Eventually I negotiated a package that suited me and was available,... More

Really friendly staff and some of the best chippy food in Ashton! Went here for lunch with my partner on our lunch breaks and were seated and fed within the half an hour we had!

Have frequented The Fish Net often over the years, however, we had not been for quite a few months. I was so looking forward to some decent fish and chips (as per previous visits) only to be so disappointed. I think it may have changed hands as the meal was very poor. Good quality fish spoilt by overcooking and a... More

I echo the contributor who says this is the best chippy in Ashton, it is, by a mile! Great fish and chips, good deals, freshly cooked, good service. Grandkids love it as well, what more can I say!

The fish net is brilliant, me and my family have been going in the fish net from what pretty much seems like the dawn of time, as well as knowing several of the staff, past and present (I happen to work with one of them now) None of us have never been able to fault anything at the fish net,...

The service was rude and frustrating. As soon as you walk in the door you are pressured into ordering. The staff are young and unprofessional and it's uncomfortable to be around. Not a nice lunch environment. The food was pleasant but the people brought the reputation down. I wouldn't visit again.
