Always visit when in Orkney. Didn't seem quite the same this time, but still providing good food at reasonable prices.

I used to have regular food here when I was just a kid back in the 70s / 80s and it was always the best fish and chips in Kirkwall, so I was just a bit concerned when I took the wife to find out that the seating area has gone also (obviously)a change of ownership. But not to worry still the best fish and chips in Kirkwall and cheap £12.00 for two fish suppers can't fault that!

A resident of Orkney had recommended this chippie to us, but when we arrived, we were disappointed to see a sign stating that they use beef drippings for frying the fish. This wasn't something one of us could eat, so we had to go elsewhere. The staff inside were very understanding, though.

The fish is amazing from the Happy Haddock. Huge portion and very fresh and chunky. The chips were nearly inedible. Nearly ok when warm but hard and chewy when they got colder. Definitely needing to review how they cook their chips. When they sort this problem I'm sure it would be 5 star fish and chips. Fast efficient service and it is clean and well organised.

Tasteless, dry, chewy chips. Served in a bag so when they salt/vinegar the top layer only gets seasoned and then everything below is bland.
