Visiting from Australia, and came to Skegness for the day. Stopped at Trawlers Catch for a fish and chip lunch with my sister and brother in law. Found they served Cod Roe which I haven’t had since I was a child, so we ordered. DK...was serving us and said he’d bring the food over when the Roe was cooked. He also gave me a small souvenir of Skegness. I was completely surprised by this wonderful gesture. I will remember this always. The meal was absolutely fantastic and all three of us thoroughly enjoyed it. 5* for service and food.More

Came to Skeg for the day with my husband and my sister (who is over from Australia) for lunch. Firstly they had Cod roe on the menu so we had to have that with our chips. Was served by TK. He was very welcoming and...polite and a really nice bloke. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal, which he brought over to us even tho it was not a waiting restaurant. When he came over we said that my sister was looking forward to her lunch, as you cannot get cod roe in Australia. He said for her to enjoy her lunch and then left us to eat, but a little while later he came back to our table with a small gift for my sister being a key ring of a bucket and spade saying that it was a memento for her of her trip to Skegness! What a thoroughly lovely, genuine man! Cheers TK and the Trawlers Catch. A lovely, lovely fish and chip lunch.More

Quite simply the fish and chips were very nice. The fish was very big and cooked to perfection. The service was prompt and pleasant, the restaurant was big and airy with plenty of room. No complaints from us!

Came here from the tripadvisor reviews. Pleasantly surprised. Was busy with people coming and going the whole time we were there. Biggest surprise was the size of the fish! See photo!! Fish, chips and peas for £5.95. Not only a bargain but a steal! The...fish was huge! Couldn’t even finish it. Had homemade onion rings too and again these were huge with a big portion. Very much recommended and well visit againMore

Never again. Cold food. And a ridiculous pirate sound effect going off every 5 minutes louder than we can actually speak. Horrible.

I used to go to this chip shop every week without fail. The last time I went the fish was soggy and tasted of metal plus the chips were cold. I set a polite message to advise. I had a message back to say pop...in and something will be sorted. Since then I have sent two messages to say I will come and talk to them. Both messages ignored. Customer service is dreadful. Will not be going back again.More

Have been here lots and food has always been yummy and good portion sizes. Most recent trip myself and my daughter were served by Dennis who was very polite and helpful. I just wish trawlers was back on Just Eat/deliveries. 10/10
