Isle of Wight chippy an 'extremely positive experience'

Tourists heading out on their Isle of Wight holidays could enjoy a meal at one of the island's fish and chip shops after it won a positive review.

Matt and Cat of the Isle of Wight Eating Out Guide headed to the Ventnor Haven Fishery and described it as an "extremely positive experience".

"The batter was better than the usual offerings at chip shops, crisp on the outside and deliciously soft on the inside," Matt said of his pollack, which he selected as it is a more sustainable fish than cod.

Cat was also happy with her choice of crab and chips, describing how "the brown meat had sunk down between the chips and was slightly warmed", as well as praising the freshly-made mayonnaise.

Ventnor is one of the most popular places to go for tourists on their Isle of Wight holidays during the summer months, due to its warm weather and attractions such as the Ventnor Botanic Garden, which is often home to rare and noteworthy species, due to the town's unusual climate.
