Other reviewers have complained about consistency, and they may have a point, but as I've only used it as a take-away, and only once, my experience is limited. I can, however, say that the cod and chips I had at Codfathers was up there with the best I've ever had, and I've had fish and chips all around the country,... More

Visited this chippy at lunchtime on 29th December. Ordered a large cod and a large chips separately as we wanted to share the chips between three of us, the miserable woman behind the counter gave us what I can only assume was a fish and chip meal which was no where near enough chips for three!! I also ordered a... More

I visited Codfathers for a burger, the grim women behind the counter ASSUMED that I wanted salad and 3 gallons of ketchup. She never asked. But she should have asked what I wanted on my burger.

Visit this chippy regularly, at least a couple of times a month. Sometimes the fish and chips are totally fresh, properly cooked and delicious, other times they are greasy and soggy, occasionally under cooked. All depends who is on frying duty so that is a bit hit and miss. Tonight they were very nice although the portion size was a... More

Have been twice in the last few weeks, and although the food is OK, not fantastic, but ok, the staff are absolutely terrible. On both occasions the customer service was distinctly lacking, with miserable waitresses who all but threw our meals at us with barely a word, one person on the second visit actually moaned because they were busy!! I'm... More

The staff is good, quite fast service, busy at times, but chips are a bit soggy with vinegar, fish is great tho. Toilets inside, and takeaway is in there too.

By far the best fish & chippy take out or eat-in in the area. Always fast efficient service. The sausages and chips are made just right every time. Plenty of free parking outside.

My partner and I went into the Codfathers and we had a seniors meal, we both enjoyed it also a pot of tea and this filled a hole when both would go again the next time ; when I go over to see my partner.

The restaurant does have sit down facilities, however I've only had take-aways. Never disappoints! Probably one of the best Fish & Chips I've eaten & their fillet chicken burger & quarter chicken is top class!! Definitely worth a try!!
