I recently had lunch in the downstairs restaurant at Oldham's, having previously enjoyed some take away fish & chips. The plaice and chips were delicious and came as a very large portion together with a small side salad and a drink. These were freshly cooked and the service was good. The only downside was that this restaurant is not disabled... More

This restaurant is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year which surely underlines just how good it is. Portions are generous and the staff, some of whom seem to have been there for years, are friendly and efficient. The takeaway counter is constantly busy (we could see it from our table in the restaurant). This is homely and tasty fare.

Visited more than once having the take away special fish and chips. One of the best in town, really good quality for a small price.

I been to this Fish Restaurant for a dinner. To be honest, I have not yet tasted a fish so delicious like in this restaurant. The meal was so fresh and taste, the salad fresh, the fish was fresh, the greetings were in place. Great service !

Oldhams has to be the tastiest fish and chip shop in Southend. You always get a hello when you walk in and the fish is cooked to your own liking

My favourite Fish & Chips in the Southend area. Great staff and the option of table service or take away. Try the middle Skate & Chips or if you prefer a Jacket Potato as does my Son enjoy that with lots of butter A full Beer/Wine service is available for dinners

I enjoyed the best F&C in the Southend area last year in Oldhams. A visit before watching a show in the Palace theatre, just across the road, was superb. The fish was cooked to perfection and there was not an over thick batter, which tends to be the failing of most chippies these days. The service was great, quick and... More
