This fish and chip restaurant has only 5 tables but the food is the best I have tasted in the area,that I have visited frequently over a number of years. There are different types of preparation for your fish,from steamed to light batter,which again is a plus,as are various types of fish on offer. The food was cooked to order... More

Had a take out. Great big portion of chips, really nice fish that was cooked to perfection. Comes in a box, you do your own salt and vinegar. Or you can sit in - fabulous. What a great place!

We normally get a take away from Browns but decided to try eating in and it was so much nicer. The fish and chips don't get soggy on the way home but are nice and crisp as they should be. We'll be back for lunch again soon!

They even supply glasses if you take your own wine. No corkage charge. Off licence 2 doors away. Very good service. Fish &... More

In eight years of visiting Mudeford, (business and pleasure) we have trieda few fish and chip shops with varying success. A few years ago we tried browns. Never been anywhere else since. A basic run of the mill operation, but with great personal attention to cooking every piece of fish as its ordered. Waiting for it to be cooked is... More

What a perfect Fish & Chip Restaurant, so helpful with great care and attention for diners. My wife who is Gluten and Wheat free was like a child in a sweet shop. They catered for her with exceptional care not only with having Fish & Chips & Pea fritter, then she also had Pineapple fritters for pudding. The vast menu... More

Very good portion of chips for the money, not greasy at all, pea fritters had some whole and mashed peas( which I know... More

Visited very spur of the moment last week. Very impressed with the friendly welcome. Love the fact this restaurant has candles on the table which add to the ambience...A lovely lady called Ali served us and she was very attentive and really went the extra mile. You can bring alcohol to this restaurant if you wish but we decided to... More

A great fish and chip shop, both takeaway and eat in. I had possibly the best cod and chips ever, and must not forget the pea fritter! Staff were very friendly and there appeared to be a number regulars eating in, always a good sign. Also, it appears you can reserve a table, a good idea as the small restaurant... More
