Have been coming here for years. Easily the best fish and chip restaurant. Food is always freshly cooked, staff friendly and good ambience.

Visited again today and was greeted with a 'new look' interior. Very impressed and congratulations to Tony. Looks great

My mum and I came for lunch after a busy afternoon shopping.

We ordered fish and chips and fish cake and chips, both came out quickly and was very fresh and tasty. The best fish and chips I have ever had comes from Reliance, the batter is crispy and not greasy, and the portions are massive!!

Reliance restaurant is a gem in Gravesend, the waitresses were friendly and the restaurant itself is clean and welcoming.

As the name suggest, this is a fish & chip restaurant (rather than just a chippy), so having seen on their website and the Trip Advisor entry that they open until 8 pm we arrived at 7.35 for a fish & chip supper. However, on entering we were told that it closed at 7.30, but remain open until 8 to allow people to finish their meal. As most other restaurants I’ve been to accept new customers during the hours they advertise as being open it would be helpful if in this case the website made this distinction clear to avoid disappointment.

Our disappointment and surprise was not eased by the rather curt and aloof manner of the lady who informed us they were closed. There was no smile, nor even ‘sorry but…”, and no acknowledgement that the website time could be misleading, but continued to clear behind the counter as she gave us just the bald unsmiling statement that it was closed for food from 7.30 but was open until 8pm for the few still eating. (Also, as we were only 5 minutes after the apparently intractable closing time for food it would have been nice if she had amiably explained that closing time is actually 7.30 but as we were only just past that time and there were still people eating they would accommodate us. I wouldn’t hold this against them though as I accept that rules are rules, but it would have been a friendly gesture – and so would a smile!)

I have been before at lunchtime when the fish & chips have tasted good, as I am sure they would have done on this occasion had we arrived five minutes earlier. However, the misleading website times and the unfriendly attitude of the waitress left a slightly unpalatable taste in the mouth, so I doubt we will be back – but if we do then it will be for lunch and not for a fish & chip supper.

The low rating is therefore for our experience and not a reflection of the food.

Always come here when we've come over to gravesend,, can't beat them, fish is hot crispy, crunchy, hot and the fish is pure white, chips are scummy, glad to be hungry, if we lived there we'd always be there, can't wait to go back
