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.

Our counter and restaurant are open and we are operating a contact-free delivery service

We ask our customers to respect our queuing system and to wear facemasks wherever possible.

To order a delivery just give our friendly team a ring, pay over the phone, we'll drop your freshly cooked fish and chips to you.

Call us on 01227 272703 or 07907 037999

VC Jones merchandise is now available in our shop (or if you’re living abroad we can take an order by email).

T-Shirts (blood, sweat and tears not included) - £25
Tote bags (shop with Jones pride) - £12
Mugs (black and white) - £11
Fridge magnets (they’re bottle openers too) - £6

Someone found this ring on the beach and bought it into the shop so we could post it out on social media.

It has an interesting inscription, we’ll show the start of it. If it’s yours it’s safe and sound on our take away counter. #whitstable #whitstablebeach
...

Even on a normal day it gets pretty hot behind our fryers and in the shop.

So, we’ve decided that as the mercury looks to hit 40c (and that’s before we’ve even started frying) we’ll be closed tomorrow.

We’ll be reopening on Wednesday.

Happy National Fish and Chip Shop Day.
Look at these beauties, fresh out of the fryer.

It’s an odd time for chippies around the country, prices and costs are going through the roof.

Wherever you are in the country, pop into your local chip shop and treat yourself to a lovely bag of chips.

Well, this was a bit of a nice surprise!
We've been shortlisted in the fish and chip shop category for The Food Awards England!

Thank you to whoever nominated us. We genuinely had no idea. What a great addition to our 60th birthday celebrations!

We couldn’t help but notice that our pollock sometimes fries in the shape of a two fingered salute.
If you’re lucky you may find that your meal says #pollockstoputin too.

Pollock (caught in Alaska and Europe) and chips are £7.45 on our takeaway.

In a world where all we can do is show our support and that we care. And in a world where Russia owns half of Europe’s white fishing grounds (including cod and haddock) what can we do?

We can say “pollocks to Putin”. VC Jones are stocking pollock (caught in Alaska and Europe) as an ethical alternative. So, if you want to support Ukraine (and your local chippy, because cod has gone up 35% in price due to sanctions ) join us and say #pollockstoputin

Ok,
It’s quite windy out there (that’s an understatement) and our drivers have already dodged tiles ripped off roofs, a piece of guttering and a flying TV aerial.

So, we’ve decided to close our counter and restaurant at 4.00 and there will be no further deliveries today.

Back open as usual tomorrow
...

One of the best things about our shop is the customers we’ve been able to build relationships with over the last 60 years.

And we’re looking forward to reopening our restaurant. So, we have decorators in giving it a good spruce up for its 60th birthday.

Which means:

We will be closed from 10th January 2022 - 31st January 2022.

The whole family are looking forward to celebrating our 60th birthday year with you all!

Happy Small Business Saturday!

Our town is full of so many wonderful independent shops and it’s been brilliant watching them decorate their windows this week.

While it may be a bit of a soggy Saturday, it’s a perfect excuse to go into our lovely shops, have a mooch, and buy something different.
