Looks nice, clean and friendly staff. The chips were okay, but the fish was overcooked and the batter was heavy and burnt.

Can't understand the reviews that say small portions of chips! We ordered two portions after reading reviews but only ate one between two adults and a toddler. Chips were nice, not greasy. Sausages were a bit cold and not the highest quality but no worse...More

Had take away from here whilst on holiday in the Cotswolds. Good freshly produced fish and chips. Cod light and flaky with light batter. Good portion sizes and reasonable prices. Worth a visit.

The Arctic Fish Bar serves excellent Fish ' Chips. It's the best chippy in Chippy*. There's no restaurant, you can't dine there, but if you fancy a fish 'n chip takeaway you'll find none better. * Chippy is what the locals call Chipping Norton.

The smallest portion of fish and chips in England. Average, better than the grease trap up the road. I guess the bar I set pretty low here.
