Come here often and had never tried the Icelandic fish . It was HUGE . Enough for two .. lovely fish . Chip could do with being cooked longer - bit anemic and not very crispy

This one and their branch in Newport are both excellent. Often have an Icelandic supper (big portion of delicious fish).

Recently bought ( an expensive) fish supper from this well known establishment The Silvery Tay has had a good reputation over the years, and I feel it is trading on that reputation rather than quality food The last few times I have bought food from this shop the chips have been undercooked, to the point were the middle of the...

I cannot explain as to why the chips were under cooked. I can only apologize. I haven't heard any other similar complaint from any other customers. If you had called us, I would have dealt with your complaint to your satisfaction. Sorry that I had to hear about it on trip adviser. More

Excellent fish and chips. Fish is always fr ah and meals are cooked to order Which can mean a slight wait but it's worth it. Big portions but sometimes they do run out of fritters!

Everything is cooked to order which means that you have to wait but given the quality of the food it's well worth it. I always get a fish supper which is always fantastic. It tastes great and fresh. Both fish and chips are very well prepared served in a nice cardboard container. Sauces, salt and vinegar are included. No where... More
