Thanks Tony and staff, We just had a lunch shout at work, all staff were very impressed with the delicious burgers and fish and chips and friendly service. I had the Cajun fish burger, the fish was cooked to perfection.

Regular visitors but very poor service tonight, clearly the young boy taking orders wasn't really enjoying being there! Order arrived next door minus half what we ordered had to wait another 15 minutes for the rest to arrive

Just happened to chance on the Milton St F & C when in the city. The regular fish was good quality, the cod divine. 2 of us had burgers and they were top notch. The chips were great - you don't need sauce with these...More

We loved ordering and having our tea brought to us in the Sprig and Fern next door. It tasted just as good the second time out of the paper. Highly recommend.

For the highest priced fish and chips in the Nelson region (at least I think they might be) we were roundly unimpressed with the quality of the food. Take a look at my photos - you will see how disgusting the genuine fish fillets were...More

Love these guys. Whether grabbing fish and chips to take home or enjoying them next door in the pub. It's always a treat. Good selection of food on offer, fast and friendly service.

Nice place to enjoy a drink on a sunny day, sitting on the deck. Close enough to walk to from the city center.

Haven't been for a while. Both fish and chips were good quality but both greasy, maybe oil temperature not hot enough. So the taste overall was a little off.

Clean, light, friendly, fast and good food. Had a venison burger (with blue cheese sauce!) - very yummy. Check what's on special, ask for advice.

Questions & Answers
I have fond memories of my childhood (28+ years ago) when we would have our 1 night a week take away dinner. I always chose Miltons because they gave me the Crispy's,lol..and if there were none they would do our order a few orders behind so there were Crispy's from other peoples orders =) Then they brought in the Chocolate donut,OMG...was like the in Lava Cake back then.lol.i ordered 1 or 2 each time. Born & raised in Nelsom but then left 16+ years ago...Every F&C place i would go to in the north island none of them had heard of thr chocolate donut (some use to be certain there was no such thing,but id always say, there is in Nelson at the Milton St F&C). Fortunately my father is flying my daughter to Nelson this Wednesday for a day trip, Im hoping to get him to take her to the 1 place her Mum ate when growing up =) Maybe she too will bring me a Chocolate donut or 2 back with her for me if you still do them?? Unfortunately i cant travel as im about to have my baby, but im happy that my daughter will get to see the beautiful place i grew up in & eat at the best F&C shop i always have fond memories of.#MiltonStreetChildhoodMemories#
