“Disgusting! ”
Review of The Balgreen Fryer

Do not waste your time ordering from The Balgreen Fryer. Brother went down to answer the door and pay for the delivery and the delivery driver was extremely rude to him and looked at him like he was going to kill him. The burger we’d ordered was completely soggy and the meat very grisly so I ended up not eating it. The chicken batter is so thick it has the texture of rubber and there’s basically no chicken inside not to mention the disgusting chips. The chips were so greasy I am not joking, there was grease dripping out the box all over my lap. Also the chips tasted foul, like they’d gone off. Absolutely horrible food, complete waste of money!

Stopped off for a fish supper on the way home from Edinburgh. Very poor quality fish and chips (and no mushy peas). Those in charge did not treat the staff well in front of customers. Both fish and chips poor.

Opened up the box to immediately see a hair stuck into the chips. Completely off putting and of course could not eat the rest of my food. Ruined both me and my partners dinner. The chips were also undercooked.

Normally cant praise this chippy enough but feel recently standard of cooking has went downhill. Today Sun 28th @ 6.45 got 2 x fish suppers which were disgusting. Felt they were left lying too long and were very greasy. The chips were a mixture of old over done chips and under done chips. Has there been a change in ownership? Normally food is great. Wont be back.
