Was massively surprised with how good this chippy is. The batter on the fish was immense, and I'm very fussy. Cod was really tasty chips cooked perfectly. Will definitely be returning again soon. Well done guys.

Can't fault the friendly staff. Does get busy on Fridays. Can sometimes wait for a little longer when there's a big queue BUT it's worth it. We sometimes go to the restaurant area and the food is very freshly made, waitress staff very polite and speedy. It's a regular haunt.

Ordered two large cod and a large chips for our sons, I have never seen such a "small" large cod portion, I hate to think what the small portion was. The large chips was equally disappointing, this used to be an excellent place and what we had tasted good but very poor value for money for size of meal. You... More

We've recently moved to basingstoke. Were looking for a decent chippy and heard this was the best in area. It didn't dissapoint! Be careful going on a Friday as we did... The queue was very far out the door! You can see how popular it is by how busy the place gets! Anyway it was reasonably priced, the chips were... More

Olivers Fish & Chips is widely known locally as the best chippy in the area. Witness the number of people using the takeaway section every evening tells the story. The attached sit-down restaurant offers an excellent service. Thoroughly recommended for both the takeaway and the sit down sections.

First the disclaimer: I'm not a fish lover! So why did I go to a fish and chip restaurant? Well. my wife does eat fish, chose cod and said it was very good. And I went with her because they offer a lot more than fish. But I really didn't enjoy it. I had soup of the day as a... More

What a lovely friendly welcome we received and a delicious fish and chip supper. It was so tasty and freshly cooked to order. The batter was so light that I even ate it and I never eat fish batter! Will be going back
