V.C. JONES of Whitstable

Fish Restaurant & Takeaway

Serving since 1962

fish and chips

Three generations of our family have been serving freshly cooked fish and chips to the residents and visitors of Whitstable since 1962.

As one of the last fish and chip shops left in the south of England to fry in beef dripping, we are proud to maintain traditional pre-war traditions.

We are currently operating a contact-free collection and delivery service. Just give our friendly team a ring, pay over the phone, and either collect or receive your freshly cooked fish and chips.

Call us on 01227 272703 or 07907 037999

With lockdown restrictions eased we know it will be busy this week and weekend. If you know that you want fish and chips from us over the next few days, please put in a pre-order so you aren’t disappointed.

Call on 01227 272703 or 07907037999.

Thank you to our generous customers. Because of you and your donations to our Pay It Forward scheme, not only have we been able to support people in isolation and suffering mental health problems by providing fish and chips through @foodfriendsuk and @caferevivalwhitstable outreach, we’ve also been able to donate meals to 25 families working with @theumbrellacafe for the 5th time!

Thank you from the whole VC Jones team and all of the people you’ve helped.

If you want to donate to our Pay It Forward scheme give us a call on 01227 272703 or drop us a PM and we’ll call you before we open the next morning.

We love our town. Whitstable is made up of so many wonderful independent businesses, many of which are unable to physically open. The VC Jones team have made a point of trying to shop locally and online to show them our support.
This week we pledge that when everything reopens we’ll enjoy cooling pints in @dukeswhitstable @theshipwhit @theoldneptune , we’ll go for dinner @sportsmankent @jojostankerton @samphire_whitstable @harbourstreettapas , we’ll browse and buy in @harbourbooks @rob_morris_front_jewellery @thewhitingpost @wallacepring @caroleridleyfashion , we’ll get ourselves pampered at @flowandcohair @pure_indulgencebythesea and at @pinkies_whitstable we’ll treat ourselves to flowers from @janeatgrahamgreener and will get all our household bits from @georgeswhitstable

What’s your #ipledge ?

The tools of our trade.
Our chip scoop is primed and ready, our boxes are waiting to be filled with tasty, freshly cooked fish and chips.
Why not give yourselves a Saturday treat and book yourselves a friendly contactless delivery. The best comfort food to keep you warm and cosy.

And just like that we were back to work.
Where did those two weeks go?

Normal opening hours resume and we look forward to serving you contactlessly or delivering to your homes.

Hello everyone,
We thought we'd give you all a quick heads up that we’ll be closed from 11 January - 25 January for our annual 2 weeks off.

This year we’ll be enjoying cocktails in the kitchen instead of by the pool, catching up on projects, and spending time with our children/partners/pets.

See you all again on 26 January (and if you have any good Netflix suggestions let us know).

Merry Fishmas everyone!
Here are our opening hours for the coming weeks.
We wish all of our customers and all our local business neighbours a peaceful festive season.

#whitstable #shoplocal @shop_by_the_sea__ #christmas

There are lots of reasons to celebrate 5th December...
2 of our family and a member of staff have birthdays today...
There’s an equally important birthday too...
Happy birthday @whitproduce Makers of our favourite sandwich, purveyors of scrumptious sausage rolls and salads, and the team who fed us hot, sweet tea when we were in shock from our fire this year.
Have a wonderful day.

Can you help us to feed some local families in need?
We’re working with @theumbrellacafe this Christmas to provide hot meals and festive food parcels to their social pantry users.
Any donations to our Pay It Forward, whether it’s rounding up your bill or adding an extra meal to your order, will help a family have a better festive season. You can donate by calling 01227 272703 or 07907 037999.

We had the crew from @acorntvuk visit the shop yesterday to film a section of the adaptation of the @juliewassmer Whitstable Pearl Mysteries outside.
A lovely bunch of people and we are pleased to share that they donated £250 to our Pay It Forward as a thank you for using our shopfront in their footage. This has taken us a bit closer to our aim to provide hot meals at Christmas to every family using @theumbrellacafe social pantry project.

If you'd like to make a donation too, just give us a call on 01227 272703 or 07907 037999 🙂

(Now we can get our Christmas decorations up)

So, here we are in Lockdown 2.0.

We're still delivering and you can still call and collect as well.

All our food is cooked fresh to order. So, you can rest assured that your food will arrive to you as fresh as possible.

Since 14th March, we haven't allowed any members of the public into our take away or restaurant, and we received a 5⭐️ food hygiene rating in August this year.
Your safety and our safety is our priority.
