So it’s Friday and it’s Fish and Chips. We have previously reviewed Fish and Chip takeaways (see here) and also visited Chip Shop itself a while ago (last review here). The menu for takeaways is much reduced currently, but we chose a medium portion of fish and chips and a larger portion of peri-peri chicken (opting for medium hot) with chips, just to spice it up a bit. Delivery was organised direct with the restaurant, which is good, but at the price of being a little slow. You just need to take it into account when you order.

A medium portion is half a chicken and also includes some healthy roast tomatoes. The chicken was succulent, but not really as spicy as we had expected. So lovely that we saved the smaller piece to have cold in a salad the following day.

There was also two pieces of fish in really nice and crispy batter, which we easily polished off.

We should have learnt our lesson by now that chips, unless really, really crispy when they leave the restaurant, will be just soggy by the time they reached us. These were not as bad as some, but they steam in the packaging and while these were tasty, they came out as a little limp. 

The whole meal was around £20.00, not including the tip. But this was a bargain, given the amount of food and the leftovers providing a second meal with a proper Ceasar. We will be back again, but our list of potential takeaway and deliveries gets longer, so perhaps not for a little while.
