A well presented high quality establishment with great food that consistently lets itself down with inadequate portion sizes.

I only stopped for a quick snack one lunchtime and was very surprised with the results, I only had a few chips and a battered sausage but was well impressed.

Stopped at Cottesmore Chip Shop on the way to my hotel near Grantham. I ate in the restaurant area. The staff are really welcoming, there is a simple no nonsense menu and the food is terrific. Lovely clean and tidy seating area. Well done, I really enjoyed my visit,

We stayed nearby at Greetham Camping and Caravan site and are in here on our first night. The food whilst not the cheapest was certainly top quality and the fish cooked to order. Fabulous light crispy batter, and the waitress couldn't do enough to help us.

Freshly cooked to order fish and chips that melt in the mouth. We use this chip shop every couple of weeks and have done since we moved here 8 years ago. The standards are constantly high, the food always delicious, beautifully clean and friendly, competent staff who can serve so quickly they cross your eyes!!

Takeway, but there's a small eating area for customers who want to eat in. One of the reviewers called it the best fish and chips England. Dunno about that - there's a lot of chip shops I haven't tried. But it's certainly up there, and certainly worth the the 5*s I've awarded. The only downside to its popularity is that... More

Sorry, you may have seen other reviews I have made for this Chip shop. That is because every visit we make to the area, if it is more than 3 months I like to leave a review.

I have just bought meals from this chip shop and I highly recommend that you just keep on driving past it rather than waste your money as the standards have dropped terribly. Chips that look like last night's scrap and stone cold kebabs. what a same, as this was a place that I would recommend in the past. THANK GOD... More
