We ate here on our one night stay in Bushmills. We were looking for something fast and filling. Well, it was. However, the taste of my chicken burger was mostly oil from the frying.

Nothing amazing about this place. That said they serve huge portions of honest to God chip shop food. I had fish and chips and it was two huge pieces of battered fish with a liberal serving of chips. A good place for a decent feed if you are in the locality.

Quick and friendly service. Excellent fast food and I'd recommend the hamburgers. Right in the centre of Bushmills village and always busy.

Good take away and the fish and chips were the best! Easy to find in the town of Bushmills. So after visiting the Distillery, go for Fish and Chips

Used to love coming to this chippy, but this is an absolute joke. Literally about 15 chips. Won't be coming here again. Quality of the chips are o-k.

Bought a single of chips and a battered cod. Thought it was pretty expensive and while there were plenty of chips, there wasn't a lot of fish in there. Friendly staff and the local pubs allow you to eat your order while having a pint. Not bad.

Had two portions of cod which was over cooked, dried up batter soaking in grease, it may have looked like a large piece of fish, but for all that was able to be eaten, was a waste of money.

I've been in here many times over many years; and the quality of the food has always been consistently good. They serve a decent quantity of decent food at a decent price.. They've nailed it!
