What we say

Total respect to Enochs for having the determination and belief to submit the restaurant to the rigorous MSC certification process. It may limit its selections but it has also set itself the task of promoting under-utilised species such as dab and coley. We also admire their willingness to listen, learn and adapt. We would like to see a little more detailed information on the menus about the place and method of catch but Enochs overall has a great approach. It goes far further along the path towards marine sustainability than most other restaurants, reflected by this excellent 4 blue fish score.

What they say

We understand the importance of sustainability and have taken action to ensure we offer an ethical alternative. We do not do this because we have to, we operate sustainably because we believe we have a responsibility to.

About Enochs Fish and Chips

The tone of this fine fish and chip establishment serving MSC certified fish is set by the jolly, interactive Monty Pythonesque website. We certainly can’t argue with their slogan: “A little bit of what you fancy.....does you good.” And if you fancy some fresh Scottish hake (£10.95), for example, you can order it freshly cooked to order either fried in a light, crispy batter, in golden crumbs or poached in a bag with parsley butter & lemon. There’s also MSC blue-ticked haddock & cod and scampi, along with sausages, burgers, gammon and savoury pies. For every sustainable fishcake meal sold (£7.95), Enochs make a contribution to the RNLI. The oil of choice - unusually for a chip chop - is high oleic sunflower oil, that is low in saturated fat & high in Omega 9.

Enochs has other unusual features including blackboard specials, locally brewed ales, espresso and thick ice cream shakes. The takeaway menu mirrors the main menu and is terrific value.
