Reviewed 18 July 2018 via mobile

I had the medium fish supper, and my daughter had a smoked sausage supper.
The fish supper was near £8 and the smoked sausage supper was £5.95.
Going on prices at home its around £7 for a large fish supper and £3.80 for a smoied sausage supper. It was takeaway, so a bit overpriced as far as I am concerned. I can understand these prices if you are sitting in.

The food we got was good, we did enjoy it., although I still would not say big price for quality food, it was no better than what we get at home locally.

We went for our chippy tea on Monday 16th July, standing in the queue there was a stale smell, I wondered if milk or something had been spilled on the mat at the counter, customer side. However, we went to the benches outside to eat our tea and I could smell it outside. Possibly it was the drains. Not a nice smell when your ordering and eating tea. Giving them the benefit of the doubt that it was a plumbing issue, I gave them 3 marks for the food being good, the pricing as takeaway was a fail as I see it.

As someone who runs a business, by all means charge for giving good quality products and/or service, but don't insult people.

Hi there, firstly thank you for your review. We value all customer feedback. I am sorry you don’t agree with the prices but they are what they are as unfortunately we also pay premium prices for our products and wouldn’t be able to charge less as like any business we need to make some money too. I wish we could charge less, however we are on par with other local takeaways as they too have massive rates, premium prices and huge bills to keep up with. We would like to think we are very reasonable on prices esperially considering the portions and quality of the food. I can assure you our shop and surrounding area is very clean and hygienic and we weren’t aware of any smell. Possibly could have had a bin uplift around that time and the lorry can sometimes leave a non smell for 5 mins.... we hope to welcome you again in the future;
Kind regards
Amanda

Great Chippy with outside seating and an inside licensed restaurant/café. Serves lots of local delicacies such as haggis, red pudding, white pudding etc. We ate outside, portions were good great tasting chips. When in Aviemore try it.

Outside the chippy is clean and tidy and is same inside. There is plenty to choose from i just had a large bag of chips and a coffee. The chips were freshly made and are one of the best i have had there was literally no grease at the bottom od my chip box.
The staff were very pleasant
Highly recommend if you are driving through aviemore.

Just paid our annual visit the "Happy Haggis" situated before entering Aviemore.
You can either sit in for table service or use the take away service. There is a great choice available to suit all tastes. There are also tables outside.
Don't be put off by any queues. This is a good sign and the staff are very efficient.
You won't be disappointed.!

Stopped in to this local spot for some authentic Scottish Fish and Chips and a beer from a local brewery. It did not disappoint. It was fast friendly and tasty! Not overly priced. Happy to have visited the Happy Haggis while visiting Aviemore.
