Best fish and chips in town!! Take out or eat in. Staff are friendly and often funny, no nonsense. Less pricey and pretentious than other place in Didsbury.

Friday early evening (4.45pm) working tonight and felt a little peckish. Thought I would share a bag of chips with my Mum. Big mistake! The chips were luke warm and tasted like they had been re-heated. What a waste of money. I'd advise anyone to check their chips before leaving Fosters - I certainly won't be going back.

I agree with a previous reviewer, we went for lunch and the portions were tiny, small fish, in thick batter and only 5 small scampi in my portion. Will NOT be going back, that's for sure.

Stopped for lunch. Great service but the fish was small and average. Batter too thick. Chips were good. A nice place but needs to up its game to be great!

Visited Sunday lunch and ate in the restaurant. It was very quiet which was good for us. The Credit Crunch Lunch is great value with a good choice / selection of meals as well. Drink and side included for £7.50. Fish and chips all fresh and delicious and free extra chips...but the portions are good so we didn't take advantage.... More

Perfect. That is all. Fish done exactly right, I even like the chips - and don't like chips. They even do more chips, free; for the brave or gluttonous.
