I moved to the area a couple of months ago and have been hunting down the best chippie since. Delighted that Nick The Fish is close by (and on Deliveroo!!) -
The food is delicious, I've never had cod so fresh and flaky, I was delighted. The chips were also cooked perfectly, fluffy inside with a delicious golden outer. I'm hungry just thinking about them again. Also, best mushy peas I've ever had. I'll need to come in for a cooking lesson I think ;)

I have been ordering food from Nick the Fish since they opened and I am just sorry it has taken me so long to write this review.

Having been a longstanding customer of a Fish and Chip shop closer to where I live which people say is the best I wasn't sure about trying somewhere new. I didn't think my regular place could be beaten but I tried NtF and I am so glad I did as the food is just outstanding! The fish is the best quality, lovely white meaty, moist and flaky cod with batter to die for. I have friends over and we order a small cone of chips to share as this is enough for two. The food is always delivered carefully wrapped and packaged and still hot. The batter doesn't suffer for travelling either and it arrives just as crisp as it is from the fryer.

Nick The Fish may I congratulate you on your service, delivery and above all the quality of your fish and chips.

We were just passing Nick the Fish and feeling quite hungry. So lucky as it was the best fish and chips that we have had. We decided to eat in and just ordered one regular cod and chips. They were happy to provide 2 plates and there was plenty. The fish was so fresh and well cooked.

Starter was unexpected, but absolutely beautiful. The main courses were just outstanding. Would fully recommend this restaurant/take away deserves at least one visit if not more.

I echo other reviews on the quality of the food. I ate in and had haddock with chips and mushy peas. The peas deserve a special mention because they were traditional style - very runny and very tasty. So many places now serve dried up green mush with mint! Decor is pleasant, staff are friendly and the place had a great vibe. I also loved the chalk board announcing the provenance of the cod (Iceland) and the potatoes used for the chips.
