I visited recently with my partner and a friend, we had struggled to find somewhere to eat in Glastonbury but happened across this little gem. What a fantastic traditional fish & chip shop, the table service was brilliant and the food was too!

great for a lunchtime take away, or for a very reasonably priced sit-down widely known as one of the best fish & chip restaurants in the UK

This was a fun restaurant. Great service and décor that will make you giggle. The fish and chips was the biggest fish and chips I have ever seen; I wish we'd shared an order. Great classic English pub.

I hope you could still move after you finished your meal! I assume you saw our wanted/for sale/situations vacant board - that usually gets people going! Thank you for the lovely feedback!

Description
Do you remember how good Fish & Chips used to taste? Well they still do - here! The same family has been serving Fish & Chips in this shop since 1909 - It is a Somerst Institution! AND you can have Wine, Beer or Cider with your Chips as they have a licence, AND you can sit down and eat it there in the shop, as its also a waited service restaurant! (booking highly advised for Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays!)

We are probably the oldest established fish and chip restaurant in the UK that has remained in the family through out its existence, as well as being the oldest established business in Glastonbury. We have the finest quality cod, haddock and plaice available, delivered daily from British ports, not to mention tons of Cambridgeshire potatoes prepared on site throughtout the year.

Apart from our takeaway section, we have a maximum seating capacity of 82, including 12 in our courtyard area. We are also noted for our home-made fish cakes prepared on the premises every day. For the carnivore, pork faggots which are made especially for us by a local butcher. We have sausages and a selection of pasties and pies by a renowned producer, and a selection of chicken choices - Stacking Burgers, Jacket Potatoes and various Meat free options. We have a massive Restaurant menu that has various best sellers, lighter meals, kids choices, sharers, starters and lots of extras!

We have a drinks licence and offer a modest selection of favourite wines, draught and bottled beers and local ciders such as Wilkins farmhouse cider & Hecks farmhouse cider.
