Perths best chippie--- Past and Present

The Fish & Chip Shop company in Cragie is the best by miles. Nane o' yer foreign crap, just a regular fish and chip shop where the grub is well cooked and the service is near flawless. Prices are more than fair.

Definitely Holdgates, many's the time after a game in the bad old days before Geoff and a fair few afterwards, it was off the minibus in South St, into the Tavie for half a dozen pints then over the road for a great fish supper or white pudding (sometimes both!) then out for the night.

Aye them were the days!!!!

Can't say I've actually been to that many Perth chippies as I pretty much stick to what I know - but the chips at Marini's next to the retail park are doss. Also fond of a white pudding supper from the Diamond on Rannoch Road.

Watsons in Methven St, Stefanis in the South St, Farqhuars Leonard St, the one in Craigie was good, the first three fellow old farts will remember:laugh:

Auld Louie up in Garth Ave was a good ane. Used to open at dinner time to sell penny sweets to the school bairns.

What chippy started the home delivery in Perth?

Step forward the chippy on Glengarry Road, I think it was called Ronaldo's at the time? It was over 20 years ago now...

Have to agree. Got a fish supper after getting back from Glasgow tonight and it was excellent. Been to Holdgates a few times recently but the Craigie one was much nicer.

Holdgates was the biz, and easily the best in my lifetime, until Freddie Hill retired that is.

Freddie was the "MAN". Simply unbeatable.

I go to St.Leonards brig now. Probably the best in town, and excellent service.

Chippies in Glasgow are rubbish.

Back in the day I was forced into chip shop labour in Inverness and we held the title of Scotland best fish and chip shop for 2 years running. So my view of what a good chippie is has been tainted by those many free meals.

Afishionados in the Old High Street cook the fish to order, always fresh and plenty of it too - be hungry if you go in there!! :D

On the downside, I wandered off from the 208 on Saturday and decided to try the chippie on Crieff Road where Aladdins used to be, walked in and the place was rank with stale/rancid oil. Decided to forget it and went home for toast and cheese.....

I'm not actually a great fan of Craigie chippy. Dunno why, been a few years since I've bought anything there, so might have to give it another go since it will be my nearest chippy when I move in a few weeks!

My favourite chippy is, unfortunately, in Belfast :(

In my day, Holdgates was very good, but my best was Cavellinis (Sp?) just off Hunter Crescent. The fish and chips were excellent and I would have jumped into the fryer for a kiss at Patsy Orange's lips. What a beautiful girl.

Hang about....I'd still jump into the fryer.

Smudge (Ah, Patsy, ya wee stotter!)
