Everything about this visit was excellent — starting from the fact that, even though we turned up after closing time (we didn’t know), the restaurant was opened up for us! What a welcome gesture! Then, loads more people turned up, and they, too, were served, politely, with a nothing-is-too-much-trouble attitude. You felt like a guest in somebody’s home. The meal... More

You can smell the fish frying 200 yards up the road! Really gets your taste buds going. Rode out here for an evening trip and stopped at Ossie's. Very friendly, welcoming service and the fish & chips were excellent. I had cod which was cooked perfectly and the batter was very good, too. Even the tea was good. This is... More

Lovely sunny day. It's my wife's birthday so we agreed to go to Whitstable,walk our dogs on the slopes and have a fish and chip lunch outside at Ossie's. Being local, we've been to Ossie's often and it was always very good. However, on this occasion we did find our meal disappointing and expressed our concern to them. The fish... More

Been here several time when I stay down here family are very friendly and will cook most to order. Cater for all ages with portion size. Best thing is to get a portion of chips and walk round the corner and eat on Tankerton Slopes looking out to sea

Read the reviews on this fish and chip shop and expected something special. However, we were very disappointed and couldn't understand how anyone could give this shop 5 stars!! The fish was just ok but there weren't many chips. Also the mushy peas were tasteless and the curry sauce was runny and didn't taste of anything. In our opinion this... More

Really great Fish and Chips, proper fish with flavour , not the usual frozen rubbish that unfortunately is served at most fish and chip shops these days. Very friendly staff and good value

One of the best chippies I've been to in a long time. Great chunky fish in a lovely batter and not greasy at all. Big portions at great value.

Not too much to say about fish n chips unless it's really good and in this case it was ok but not really good. Took a bit long to prepare considering they're was no one else eating in but I guess it takes as long as it takes Wasn't nice listening to the staff argue about Muslim/Christian stuff whilst I...
