“Old Skool Chippy - Take Cash!”

I've been here a fair few times and find it a really decent chippy. Food quality is always very good although the chips can be a little dry on occasion. Portion size is good too and there's always enough to satisfy a hunger.

You need to take cash, however, as they don't take bank cards... Thankfully a cashpoint is only a couple of minutes walk away!

I always go here when I am in Lerwick. Friendly staff, they have even offered to store bags for me as I was struggling with a broken suitcase. No frills but excellent fish and chips, I agree with those who say they are better than Frankies at Brae. Not as cheap as it was though, £12 for a large fish and chips and they don't take cards so go prepared.

Nice café underneath the guns of Fort Charlotte, slightly hidden so not visible from the road, but it's there!

There is a café attached to a takeaway which is perfect to sit in and scoff whatever food you choose. The menu is broad, I had haggis and chips and my wife had haddock, both were really nice, service was good and fairly quick, and we left happy.

This tiny café attached to a fish & chip shop was a real find. Service was excellent and the food was very tasty (portions HUGE). Prices very reasonable. I had battered white pudding and chips, and a battered pineapple ring for just over a fiver.

Not gourmet, but real hearty Scottish food of the people. Will definitely go back if we are in Lerwick again.
