Extensive menu, friendly service and reasonable prices. It was good to have the opportunity to choose between the regular fish and chips and the small (but very generous) small portion. Really enjoyed the macaroni cheese and chips! Would definitely go back.

Every time we go to this chip-shop the food is always amazing. Never feel let down at all. The fish or sausage is what we usually get but everyone in our family highly recommend the fritters.

Pleasant memories in years gone bye of regular visits to Mario's in Brantwood Avenue; first class produce especially the fish and chips and never disappointed. Tried the Lawers Drive chippy when it opened and not impressed. Gave it a second go recently and no improvement....More

Go here now and again great chippy freshly made to order worth a visit. It's easy to find and right across the road from belltree premier inn so perfect if u don't fancy supper there. Also a co-op, chemist etc perfect all round
