Walked past earlier in the evening with a queue out the door. Assumed this must mean it's a good chippy. We were correct. Freshly cooked fish and chip friendly service. Sat and ate it on the chairs outside inbetween the rain showers. Would recommend.

Excellent chish and fips! Situated by the Royal Harbour, Pete's wares have always been fab. Paid parking opposite, near to the bus route, a few minutes walk to Ramsgate Main Sands

Best chips in Margate by far a very long queue day or night but its certainly worth the wait. The staff were friendly and helpful and attempted to get through everyone asap.

We’ve come here quite a few times and food is generally speaking really good. Fresh, hot and nicely cooked. Only downside, and it’s terrible hence the bad review, is that the owner appears to have abandoned it and left it to children. Waited for 22...More

The queue has very long waited for about 20 mins but definitely worth it the food was delicious and so cheap. a lovely bit of cod and chips for half the price of a London chippy and tasted so much better. Definitely a recommendation

Always a queue here and no wonder. The best fish and chips I've had in ages. No skin left on the cod and light and crispy batter. Yum
