Called in for a takeaway (didn't want a sit-down meal); fish apparently cooked to order, but meal well cooked and good value. Service good and cheerful, and a slice of lemon on a takeaway fish is a nice touch and topped it off.

Quite rightly this chippy is regularly voted the best in the city, region, and newly the country. I can't pass comment on the actual restaurant as I've never been (only been to the takeaway) - but I could guarantee the food would be good!. My understanding is that everything is sourced locally, including the potatoes which are regularly different with... More

Was visiting Lincoln so popped in there based on their recent award. Wasn't disappointed. Fish cooked to order, very nice batter and cooked well. Chips were also freshly cooked. Staff very polite and dealt well with a number of customers who arrived in a short period of time. Would definitely use again if were in the area. Nice touch offering... More

We were in Lincoln for the weekend and had heard about this place so decided to give it a try. We went on a Friday night and had not booked, we had to wait about 10 mins for a table. Excellent fish and chips and very reasonably priced. do recommend you book if you decide to go

Went to Lincoln for a weekend and was not sure where to go for an evening meal, was told about this "chippy" and what a great find. We did have to wait around 20 minutes to be seated, but we had not booked a table so was really OK with that. The restaurant itself is spotlessly clean, bright and airy,... More

Considering everyone's says this is so good and different awards. We tried it but was not impressed at all fish so small but so much batter on it to make it look bigger and to many slivers of chips. Will not use again

Went went with a party of three soon before closing time hoping to get something to eat after a busy day. They were happy to accommodate us, and orders were taken quickly and the drinks arrived almost instantly. At this point the restaurant was emptying because it was nearing closing time, but even so, we were not rushed at all... More

Called in for a takeaway and the two girls working (Rebecca and Paula) were very cheerful and worked their way through the very big queue very quickly!! The food here is always top notch!

Delicious fish & chips served here. No wonder they win awards. Good idea to book as always busy in the restaurant.
