Anyone eaten here? Menu seems quite interesting, although a trek to get to, even if you live in Plymouth.

Had them a few weeks ago for the first time.

3/10 and I'm utterly serious.

Not sure if they were just having a bad day but the batter on the fish was rock hard and broke away in shards when cutting. The fish wasn't tasty and wouldn't be surprised if it was frozen. Some pieces of the fish/batter were not even edible. Chips were average and the curry sauce was just ready made curry sauce.

Very dissaponted and won't be going back.

The best F&C for me is Rockfish next to the aquarium. consistantly 8/10 and fresh fish freshly cooked to order.

If there's one thing Plymouth does well it's chippies.

Favourite used to be the one just off Wolseley Road, opposite the new(ish) Lidl. Can't remember the name or if it still exists.

Then it was Francine's right at the bottom of North Prospect Road.

If I was up by grandma's then it was the chippy on Dean Hill.

I hope at least one of those is still extant.

Prellys was like eating cardboard though. Shame.

Rockfish was good last time I was in, and there's a decent choice of beer.

Pleased to see on the menu of the Kingfisher that they offer gravy or curry sauce as an option (even if Tugboat says the latter's just ready-made). Living up in Yorkshire now, I always appreciate the choice which doesn't always happen in the south-west.

For the Liverpool game I parked outside Fryers, 160 St Levans Road Had large cod and chips. Excellent, bit pricey at £6.50 maybe but really hot, really well cooked and delicious. Roll on evening games!! :thumbs:

Have tried 'prize winning' chippies before, I think they look for different aspects than I do!! Hot & tasty does for me!! :thumbs:

Fryers is very good local chippy with fresh fish and food cooked to order. Getting busier by the week which is always a good sign.

Francine's is all about the portion size getting brilliant value for money.

Always been a fan of the chippy halfway up Albert Road in Devonport.

Good to hear PW.

I will pass your comments on to Anthony - I am sure he and his "better half" will be delighted.

I live - when I am home - a few hundred yards from them - and I always go there when I get home to the UK, as my first evening meal.

Gorgeous !!

Keep the Faith :scarf:

That one is close to me but I way prefer Bembow Street.

Superb quality fish (cod) last time I sampled May or June last year. Chips nicely crisp obviously double fried (might have been treble) Really enjoyable comfort food. Worthy winners.
Both Francines and Shirley's in North Prospect are pretty good but Rockfish is the outstanding one in central Plymouth.
Also the chippy in King Street was pretty good last time I tried (probably 18 months 2 years ago)

Back on topic Kingfisher worthy of their title. Congratulations Plymouth business. :thumbs: :clap:

Benbow Street Ok but bonus points for MASSIVE portions. :greensmile:
