By far the best chippy in the area, just wish they had a cafe section. All the food is cooked fresh to order so be prepared to wait for your food, this means it is fresh, hot and the batter is crispy, delcious.

Best chippy around, all freshly cooked to order good portion sizes and not too expensive. Service excellent although you have to time your visit as it can get very busy and as all good is cooked fresh there can be a wait, but it’s worth...More

We ordered 9 portions of fish and chips which were very tasty and nicely cooked. Served promptly with not much wait. I was really pleased these were served in recyclable boxes and not plastic or polystyrene.

Definitely the best chippy in the area. Lovely and fresh. Go a lot and always happy with the food. Sometimes it gets a bit manic because it’s so busy but always worth the wait with friendly service albeit a bit confused sometimes

Asked for extra large haddock meal as advertised. Obviously no extra large fish but instead of saying that was told, I'll give you a large, no i want an extra large, I'll give you a large, this went on for some time. Very sarcastic attitude...More

Ainsworth's do not sell or advertise a EXTRA LARGE HADDOCK or a EXTRA LARGE HADDOCK MEAL so for this reason amongst others, we believe that it is possible that this person has reviewed the wrong buisiness or has left a FAKE REVIEW.

Probably the freshest, crispiest and tastiest chips I’ve ever had Delicious 😋 Wish you could add your own salt and vinegar (only cos I probably like too much)
