Too busy, have to wait in massive queue in a busy waiting area. Doesn’t feel very safe. The system seems to be wait before you can which they keep staggering, the. You place an order and then guided to wait in another area till you...get your orderMore

Black pudding spices are nice BUT chips are severely undercooked. Tried multiple times and do not think I’ll be back. Sorry but ya have took the chips and they have to have taste. They taste of nothing.

Moved to the area 4 months ago and tried all the chip shops , done this one 3 times and each time the chips were undercooked and stank of bad fat. Black pudding was the only decent thing we had. Three times is enough to...get it right and they failed miserably. Thankfully we found a great chippy at Portknockie.More

Don’t what is wrong with ‘ incomer ‘Angela’ but we have been going here for yonks. Well done all for keeping things going, it is much appreciated by all in Fochabers and beyond. Good buzzer system to make sure no one is waiting too long...for take out. VERY generous sized portion of haddock cooked just right, thin crispy batter and non greasy chips topped off with a generous helping mushy peas and homemade tartar sauce. Keep it up folks.More

Recommended! What a HUGE disappointment. The taste of the cooking fat was disgusting. Undercooked chips and batter. The “large “ haddock was not. Thank goodness for curry sauce , it masked some of the horrid aftertaste. What a waste of calories Having moved from a...land locked region I cannot believe that it can be so wrong this close to the sea.More

This is just about the best fish and chip shop we have ever visited. Fish and chips were excellent, service was pleasant and the price was very reasonable. Well done!

Came here years ago and were disappointed, but this time it was perfect! To try and foil those Covid germs, we ate in the car, but it was well worth it.
