Without doubt the best of its kind in the area, it's a proper old fashioned shop that does only traditional fish and chips ( not like so many places that now do everything from kebabs to Pizza) Proper mushy peas My last 5-6 visits the fish has been top notch

Recently visited for an impromptu snack... a good decision. The place is usually busy as you'd expect for a good quality centrally located shop. Great chips, light and fluffy inside with a crisp outer. Fish equally as good. All those visitors can't be wrong.

The best fish and chip shop in Ely. They do a mini meal for the people that can't eat a lot and it is good value for the money

We don't usually have chips locally (only on beach trips) but we came here at around 6pm due to being locked out of our house for a few hours and I can honestly say they were THE best fish and chips I have ever had!!
