I thought I would walk to here from the beach with my flip flops foldable chair and mother, wasn't a great idea took almost an hour, get transport. As soon as I walked in i knew it was gonna be good a bunch of senior...locals all eating there . We got like a meal deal for haddock which included a pint, they only have what's in season on the menu! No frozen stuff, from experience of eating fish I was pretty sure my haddock was probably caught within 24-48 hours with was so light and delicious, I tested them to see if they would honour the unlimited chips! Which they did no problem, food was fantastic staff were great it was worth the walk from the beach to be honest will defo come backMore

I love fish and chips so over the years I've become a bit of a connoisseur. There's nothing better than good fish and chips. Over the years I've been to loads of places and had loads of fish and chips. I've got to say Chez...Fred is the best fish and chips I've ever had. I saw Harry Rednap recommended it on his TV programme a while back. We came here for Takeaway when the restaurant was closed.But this week whilst spending a few days in Bournemouth we returned.We came on Monday and had to come back today to have some more. Would highly recommend deffo the best fish and chips. Lovely Thank you very much to Chez Fred. Hopefully I'll be returning very soon.More

We went to Chez Fred on the wettest Saturday ever - we were dripping rain and blown to bits with the wind so to come to eat in this restuarant was like going to heaven. It is run like a well oiled machine but the...staff still remain very friendly. The fish and chips are cooked to order so are extremely good. The fish was deliciously fresh and cooked to perfection. The portions are big and you can have more chips if you want. We were too full to have more chips but still managed to have some great icecream despite the rain !More

Lovely piece of fish - very fresh and flaky and tasty with a nice crisp batter - not too thick. Perfectly cooked and chunky chips. Mushy peas that were also fresh and tasty and not like the volcanically hot pea sauce you can get.

What can I say it’s still one of the best chip shops in the U.K. Chips perfect along with the scampi and chicken tenders. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. There’s a reason why they have been going so long and...have a great reputationMore

We love our chez fred meals, although the portion sizes can vary with the cod and chicken tenders (which are now just small cubes) it is always excellent quality, fresh and piping hot

We really enjoyed our dinner at Chez Fred. Everything was super tasty and fresh. We went on a Monday and it was busy but we only had to wait 10 minutes for a table. The staff were so nice and helpful. Highly recommended.

There is a park about 10 mins walk away, or Alum Chine has benches on the approach to the beach.
