Catered for a party of 18 and everything was hot and cooked well. We had a range of items for our party and not a chip was left!

Fish and Chips do not come any better than this anywhere in the UK. Batter is thin and crispy and fish are large and always fresh. They deserve the best fish and chip shop award.

A visit here is well worth the wait! There's always a queue but the food is freshly cooked to order. We always have fish without batter and it is beautiful! The staff are so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble! I've stood out in the rain many a time queueing and I wouldn't do it anywhere else. Treat... More

There are not many good chip shops left. This is definitely one of them You can tell its good because you actually eat it all instead of throwing half of it away

A large chips is a lot to handle - you've been warned! The quality is great for the price and we always go here if we're in the need for some indulgence!

Not many open days but well worth a visit The place is clean and the staff efficient. The food is as good as you'll find anywhere. Maybe not the greatest you've ever been to but up with the best. Be prepared for long queues

We go to this chip shop every few weeks for a Friday treat but tonight it was disappointing. The batter on the fish was under cooked and soggy. The chips were not as nice as normal. Maybe an off night? Will give them another chance before changing chippy :)

Our family party of 17 stayed in the area, weekend of 28 October 2016. We pre-ordered a few days before. Our order was ready for us to collect on time, spot on,the team at Wessingtons were so very obliging and helpful and our fish and chip meal was thoroughly enjoyed by us all. Would certainly recommend this chippy. Thank you... More

Wessington Chip Shop has had a deserved reputation for a number of years for its limited opening hours but... when it is open... it's a must to go and get the take-away fish and chips! The reputation is still valid. We went to get takeaways to carry back to where we were staying on a Thursday night in the summer... More
