Casual
For decades the traditional fish and chip shop has served the humble fish supper to families across Britain every single day. Despite being a cornerstone of our culture the concept has never been updated... until Now!

The Chippy is a casual, family friendly restaurant which since opening has offered a fresh and up-market twist on the old school chip shop we all know and love.

You can enjoy traditional favourites such as battered haddock and cod as well as more exotic choices. All will be served in a special recipe batter with traditional hand cut chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce. As if that wasn’t enough, there is also a wide selection of soups and salads available at all times.

Was really nice as usual however sad to hear they are not doing full fat/sugar soft drink. Normally like this with meal and tea for after. However helped me be healthy (with fish and chips) to have water 😀

The only thing good was the fish. Chips were soggy, everything served in a paper box. Needs to be staffed properly with at least 2 waiters plus one person at cash register and to seat people and separate person to pour drinks. They only had 2 people to do the work of 4. Found much much better fish and chips on the following night just a few blocks away.

Having been once before I expected the same great service however, that wasn't the case. I had a table booked for 3 pm on Saturday. We arrived at 2.45 pm to be greeted by a member of staff who appeared annoyed that we were 15 minutes early. We indicated we would need to sit and wait as the baby was due a feed. There were only three seats for waiting which were located right next to the busy doorway to the toilets and kitchen access. At 3 pm we still hadnt been seated despite the fact there were numerous large empty tables. After having to ask again at 3.10, we were eventually seated at 3.20 pm. The food was good although all four teas were on the cold side. The waiters also tried to remove plates from the table whilst we were all still eating. There were two private dining parties going on however management should have ensured there were enough staff to serve everyone. Highly disappointed and dont know if I will return.

Hi Veronica, We're especially proud of our homemade tartare sauce, so I'm glad you enjoyed it! If you haven't tried the Lemon Sole yet, I can't recommend it more; it's my personal favourite. We look forward to having you dine with us again. Stephen Restaurant Manager

We were there for a family lunch. They were very short staffed, nobody was there and the lady took a long time to seat us down. When we ordered, it took quite long to get our food and the waitress messed up our order. We ordered onion rings instead we got plain uncooked raw onions. Then once our fish arrived, it was uncooked, the chips were uncooked and tasted bland and nothing had flavour!

If you want traditional, well cooked fish and chips but would prefer to sit at a proper dining table to eat them, possibly with a pint, this is the place for you.

Unimpressed with new menu and don't like being welcomed by "do you have a voucher ?" Chippy is trying to be something it's not. Total lack of ambience, lack of o.a.p. menu and just not the same.

Location was a challenge to find so we were pleased that it was worth the effort. Our food was amazing - a bit slow on the service for both food and drinks but well worth the wait. One of our top fish and chip dinners in Scotland!

Decent service. Friendly enough but not overly friendly.
Good food and what you would expect.
Food came out hot so no complaints.
Atmosphere drowned out by where we were sitting next to the cooking area.

Food was amazing as always, however, the day I went the service was slow. The restaurant had maybe 5 tables in, and three waiters. We felt like we had been forgotten about. It took over 15 minutes for us to get our order taken, a further 10 before I got my drink (my two friends got their irn-bru after a couple of minutes). Nobody checked on us during the meal, and the waiters stayed near the front of the restaurant almost the entire time. When we had finished, nobody came to clear the table, and so we had to go to the till to pay. Normally the service is great, so I don't know if there was some kind of function on in the adjacent room but I left feeling disappointed by the service.

Lovely fish supper and pot of tea. We will need to return, if only to leave a tip. We felt so guilty not doing so, but had absolutely no cash on us as we had prepaid the meal.

We have been here a few times now and the food I always fresh and very tasty. We had a Groupon voucher for two for two fish and chips and a bottle of wine. It cost £20. Excellent value for money.
