Very fresh and tasty. I had soft shell crab burger with gluten-free batter and bun. Yum. Son had baked mussels, snapper and chips. Went here after climbing Mount Victoria, so we were pretty hungry. Great service, too.

We came here for lunch after a stroll in te papa there are some seating areas but it's rather limited. There is a smorgasbord of choice for how you may want your fish and chips. A top place for a quick lunch.

Yes please! These chips are the real deal. Burgers not the best in town but it's pretty good. Definitely the best chips in the Mount Vic area

First time to any Chippery. Really liked the way I could choose the type of fish and how it was cooked. (Tempura batter with coriander was delicious).

This casual place is fantastic. Eat in or take it to-go for a picnic. Lots of choices of fish, fries and sauces, and the cole slaw is the best I've had anywhere in the world.

Quiet simply the best fish and chip shop in Wellington, pick your own fish, freshly battered in choice of batter, choice of chips, sides and dips. Really tasty. And much needed on way back down from Mt victoria lookout.

We believe The Chippery serves the best fish and chips and here's why... We know where our fish comes from and it's super fresh. Our fish gets landed in Wellington regularly by our very own commercial fisherman and we work with other local suppliers to ensure quality and variety year round. Our oysters come from farms in Bluff and Marlborough and are absolutely delicious! To make the best fish and chips we start with the best ingredients. We use the finest quality Wellington craft beer to make our batter. Our Agria chips are cut by hand. When it comes to our burgers, our beef patties are also made by hand using grass-fed brisket. We use free-range pork shoulder and slow roast it for 12 hours to make our pulled pork burgers the best in town. Our Free-range eggs come from Wellington and make our delicious aioli and tartare sauces. We also use only the best free-range Waitoa Chicken on our menu. We understand that some people are on a restricted diet and we offer a wide selection of gluten free dishes including a gluten free batter for our fish and seeded gluten free buns are available for our burgers. We even have a dedicated gluten free fryer; just remember to let us know which items you need cooking separately. The Chippery also offers plenty of vegetarian and vegan offerings. If you need anything special, just ask, we'd love to help. We were the first fish and chip shop to use online ordering and offer a delivery service to 14 suburbs in the central Wellington area! Welcome to the Chippery.
