Very average fish with unnecessary crinkle but chips at seemingly extortionate prices. It's been a while since I paid in excess of £10 for fish and chips twice with a "small" mushy peas. £13.50 for an average size piece of cod, not a large portion of chips and the small peas has to be a local record. Not impressed.

I have been eating at Tates since I was a child. (I am in my 50's now). Without doubt one of the best Fish and Chips in the County. I can't think of many that serve chips crinkle cut. Tates do and the feature is a welcome enhancement to an already excellent product. Tates. Outstanding.

We were very disappointed, our food was not hot and did not taste that good when we asked why we were basically told to eat and shut up, my husband requested Ketchup and they brought him 1 packet then charged us 10P for it.

Stumbled on a traditional fish & chip shop in Boston. Haddock chips & mushy peas for me with a mug of tea on the side. And some white bread & butter. In deference to a healthy lifestyle you can ask for a lighter batter. Fantastic meal.

I'm afraid this must be a rare negative , the chips are good , the fish was grey and when brought to the owners attention was told , go to MC Donald's then , trading on an ancient award . Not impressed . The atmosphere is cold . The habitués have been going there since nipper was a pup .... More

I've been there twice recently and enjoyed the meals both times. Had F&Cs both times and a coffee. Service is great and a way to have a seat after shopping. Shame they charge for ketchup but then not everybody wants it so a charge is reasonable.
