We have been back on our bikes to ely for great fish and chips. We come from West Dereham to Ely on Wednesday and sat in the sun outside watching the world go by eating those fabulous fish and chips. Thank you

This is a Fish House, what more can you say. Always quite busy, which is a good sign. Seating within, but carry-out is popular. We always enjoy it and this is our "go to" fish stop.

Recently visited for an impromptu snack... a good decision. The place is usually busy as you'd expect for a good quality centrally located shop. Great chips, light and fluffy inside with a crisp outer. Fish equally as good. All those visitors can't be wrong.

The best fish and chip shop in Ely. They do a mini meal for the people that can't eat a lot and it is good value for the money

Hi Barry. Could you confirm whether or not you still have any connection to Petrou Brothers, now that you are the Fish House? I ask because there are people on here (back to September this year) still reviewing your store as Petrou Brothers. I am trying to fix this with TripAdvisor, because at the moment it looks like there are 2 companies, yours and theirs, in exactly the same spot, and both have listings here! Thanks for the store though, your food is wonderful. Charles

Hi Charles, I can confirm that the Fish House Ely has nothing to do with the Petrou Bros, I have spoken with Tripadvisor to try and get them removed but it is proving very difficult.
