The Chips + Malt restaurant has opened its doors on August 6, 2015. The interior is really nice, with exposed brick walls, a slight nautical theme with sage green seating booths, dark wood tables, and tasteful wooden details, with black décor accents that add to the quaint feel of the restaurant.

The menu contains their flagship offer, the fish and chips dish with cod, pollock, haddock, halibut, orange roughy, and halloumi options. These dishes are accompanied by a coleslaw salad and tartar sauce. For the patrons that don’t like the classic fish and chips dish, there are burgers, sandwiches, greens, savouries and many side dish options, as well as a separate kids menu.

For the people that would like to enjoy this food at home, the Chips + Malt serves a very nicely packed takeaway menu. The restaurant has a nice selection of drinks and to top off a good meal, there is a great desserts menu led by their home-made vanilla ice cream.

The Chips + Malt restaurant is a nice place to go, have a good lunch and spend time with friends and family. It is smart to make a reservation, as it has become quite a popular spot. There is parking on the street and on a private parking lot, you can come with your kids or large group, and enjoy the casual, laid back atmosphere, good food and have a pint of beer or a glass of wine.

The most often noted “complaint” about this place is the size of their fish and chips portions, with people rarely having enough room to clear the plates. And added to that their homemade ice cream, this is a place definitely worth trying, and coming for seconds.
