Fast food takeaway with vegan (mostly soy-based) versions of classic chip shop dishes: battered fish, pies, pasties, battered sausage, chips, curry sauce and mushy peas. Also serves Indian meals (with vegan naan), burgers, pizzas (vegan cheese available), and various side dishes. Friendly and enthusiastic staff who are passionate about vegetarian food. Seating available but it is primarily a takeaway. Reported closed July 2023.

The best vegan fish

My partner was blown away by the fish. It’s the best fish he has had in his life. The chips were perfect English chips, great mushy peas and curry sauce.

The staff are beyond lovely offering us free potato scallops while we waited and taste tests. It felt like we were family.

Pros: Mainly vegan , Fantastic food (that fish) , Lovely staff

Great food and amazing service

Fish is the one thing I've missed since going vegan - this has quenched my appetite!

Friendly and lots of choice

So much choice! Very friendly, polite and helpful staff. Good value for big portions. Food made fresh. It's vegetarian not vegan though, they have dairy cheese available for pizzas.

Great proper chip shop

Really friendly staff who check if you’re vegan or vegetarian when you’re ordering. Decent sized portions and good quality food.

Edit: Went again last night, my first visit since the pandemic. Still open, still friendly and the food is still great, so give them a visit.

Proper English vish and chips!

I came here for dinner tonight after driving down to Birmingham for work and am so glad I did! I got battered vish and chips which looked and tasted just like I remembered it from my childhood in England, even down to the paper it was wrapped in. Hopefully I’ll get time to come back and try some more of the menu while I’m here. Highly recommended!

Faux fish n chips that look and taste absolutely real. The tandoori vegan chicken burst with flavor. The enthusiastic and friendly staff will make you feel special. Massive portions at a wallet friendly price too.

The battered Vod is soooo good!

I have been meaning to try this place for a while, and had a craving for an authentic as possible 'fish' and chip experience since becoming vegan. The owner is lovely and there were soo many options, he suggested the battered vod and it was soooo good! Highly recommend this place!

Visit often...

This place has good variety junk food, everything you’d get in a chippy but vegan, apart from dairy cheese. The owners are brilliant and really friendly. Everything here is delicious so I recommend you to try the menu one by one! One con is that food can be inconsistent sometimes.

Tasty Food at Great Prices

I've ordered from them a numerous amount of times and I've never been disappointed. The food is tasty and at a reasonable price. Would definitely recommend to all - vegans and non vegans alike.

Extremely disappointing

I would have given one star but happy cow wouldn’t let me.
I was so excited to try this place having just moved into the area from another area which had a solely veggie / vegan chip shop which was amazing, I was so happy to see that I could still have those options available to me from my new home, however I definitely won’t be returning.
Service is slow, staff don’t seem to be quite with it, general atmosphere was off putting, food was greasy and not of a good standard plus over priced.

Love it - time and time again

I've been a regular here for around 2 years now and never been disappointed. Decent value for money, huge range of vegan options from burgers, pizzas, fried 'chicken' and masala fish. Tandoori chicken and masala fish are my favourites. Chips are great.

Pros: Great vegan range, Good value

Cons: Sometimes wait is a little longer than anticipated, Limited parking, Don't expect healthy options

Disappointing quality

I was really looking forward to trying this place after seeing the reviews. Sadly both myself and my friend were disappointed with the offering. We ordered the tandoori and southern fried Vhicken served in a naan with chips

The meat substitute was wet, greasy and didn’t have any resemblance to chicken, like you get with quorn or vegan Aldi options. The naan was also dry and barely held together. The chips were really good though, fresh potato chips which were perfectly cooked.

They also ran out of vinegar so we had to put our own on when we got home. Sadly I wouldn’t return.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Friendly staff, Great tasting chips

Cons: Greasy wet vhicken that tastes like fake fish

Vegan fish and chip shop... so you order curry and naan and complain about it.... mmmkay. Like people go to a curry house, order omelette and chips, and say it's not the best omelette they ever ate.

@kennyp353 they offer a wide range of food and not just fish and chips. What I ordered from the menu wasn’t to our taste and not of a good standard. So your comments are absolutely pointless.

It’s a chippy but not as you knew it!

What a curious find; late night sitting in a regular chippie with a 99% vegan menu! Enjoyed a variety of items some provided for free as samples by the lovely staff. It’s a local place with a local flavour and a taste of most satisfying vegan comfort food!

Pros: Vegan Chippie!!!, A big menu , Fantastic helpful and friendly staff

Veggie Chippy it is exactly what it says!

Love the food in this place it's basically your standard chippy but vegan. They've been very creative in making all the traditional vegan foods available and they are always bringing out new products. It's a chippy so it comes as you'd expect nothing different just all plants-based foods which is great.

Pros: Owner are great and passionate, Real chip shop feel, Delicious and fresh food

Cons: Wish they were open throughout the day

Just like a chip shop but vegan!

Super friendly staff, good food - especially the tandoori chicken-style nuggets and the the chips were proper chip shop chips!

Bit out of the way from the centre but worth the journey 😊

One of best Vegan Chip Shop

I’ve tried a lots of vegan chip shops before I went to this one. It’s amazing! Great kebab, great pizza, great food in general. Staff are always polite and friendly. Love this place. Like I already said to the members of staff I would love them to be in other places across UK too. They are cooking everything fresh. The only minus is when they are closed and Google does not always say that and yet you still can call them so you are not sure until you get there but that not happened often.

Pros: Lots of Vegan option, Friendly staff, Great taste of food

Cons: None
