Was recommended by Social club barmaid at Harwich docks that this fish and chip shop did good food and delivered orders to the club. Food arrived within 30 minutes and was very enjoyable.

This is my second review of this establishment and once again I have to rate it excellent. I ordered 65 cod and chips for a social at our club and once again the food was delivered very hot and exactly on time. Food was enjoyed by all in attendance.

Skippers delivered 70 portions of cod and chips to our Social evening. The food arrived on time, piping hot and most important of all it was delicious. Excellent service and will certainly use again.
