My wife and I have partaken of the eat-in "Senior special" on several occasions. This is a superb meal comprising fish, chips and peas (small but adequate portion), bread and butter + hot drink. What value at just £4.50.

Found this in my fish when telling the waitress they were rude and unhelpful. They wished to have the slate then wanted to take a picture. I wonder why ? Will not be eating here again.

First time visit to this fish and chip shop tonight, so glad we did. The best fish and chips we have ever had. Batter melted in your mouth. It was Very busy, but we were served within 5 minutes. Thought Rick Steins fish and chips were good, these were even better. Will definitely be back for more.

Other reviewers have complained about consistency, and they may have a point, but as I've only used it as a take-away, and only once, my experience is limited. I can, however, say that the cod and chips I had at Codfathers was up there with the best I've ever had, and I've had fish and chips all around the country,... More

Ordered a large cod and a large chips separately as we wanted to share the chips between three of us, the miserable woman behind the counter gave us what I can only assume was a fish and chip meal which was no where near enough chips for three!! I also ordered a... More

I visited Codfathers for a burger, the grim women behind the counter ASSUMED that I wanted salad and 3 gallons of ketchup. She never asked. But she should have asked what I wanted on my burger.

Visit this chippy regularly, at least a couple of times a month. Sometimes the fish and chips are totally fresh, properly cooked and delicious, other times they are greasy and soggy, occasionally under cooked. All depends who is on frying duty so that is a bit hit and miss. Tonight they were very nice although the portion size was a... More

Have been twice in the last few weeks, and although the food is OK, not fantastic, but ok, the staff are absolutely terrible. On both occasions the customer service was distinctly lacking, with miserable waitresses who all but threw our meals at us with barely a word, one person on the second visit actually moaned because they were busy!! I'm... More

The staff is good, quite fast service, busy at times, but chips are a bit soggy with vinegar, fish is great tho. Toilets inside, and takeaway is in there too.
