Me and DP are having a debate

We ordered from the local chippy tonight and I think it’s really expensive at 35.00 for 4 cheesy chips,2 savaloys and 2 sausages !

He thinks this is average 😂

I admit I haven’t got chip shop since I was a child when our mum would send us with 5.00 to feed 3 kids !

Am I being unreasonable?

That is obscene! It works out as, for example. £5 each for cheesy chips and £3.75 for a chipshop sausage? Nothing average about that at all. Did they give you a receipt?


FlyingBurrito · 17/04/2021 20:05

My local chop shop only deals in stolen cars so good that yours does food at all

The price though is way high compared to an actual chip ship Grin


SomeoneInTheLaaaaaounge · 17/04/2021 20:06

Insane price!!!!


WarmSausageTea · 17/04/2021 20:06

Wait, what? That’s about £9 per sausage/saveloy and chips. What’s in the sausages, unicorn?

Anyway, I’m with you OP, I’d have expected to pay around £10 for that lot.


IamnotH · 17/04/2021 20:06

Wow. 2 large portions of chips, 2 saveloys, a battered sausage, a medium cod and a pot of curry sauce is about £20 at our chippy.


Pamelaaaaa · 17/04/2021 20:06

I'd expect that to come in at less than £20


Troublewaters2021 · 17/04/2021 20:06

Oops !!!! Chip 😂😂😂😂😂

I think it’s so over priced the chips were 5.50 !!!

I get a fish, a scollop and scraps for £3.80, I think fish and chips is about a fiver.


LMW1990 · 17/04/2021 20:07

Day light robbery around these parts! I get Fish and chips twice, portion of chips, scallops, curry sauce and D&B for £14 (or thereabouts). Portions are massive too


confusedbeyond · 17/04/2021 20:08

That would have come to £19 from my chippy.


berryhead2013 · 17/04/2021 20:08

We got a chippy tonight we got large chips a whole smoked sausage chicken pakora and a 10inch pizza it was 20.60 including delivery


FoxyTheFox · 17/04/2021 20:08

That would come to £15 in my local chippy - £2 each for jumbo sausage, £1.50 each for saveloys, and £2 each for cheesy chips.


DancesWithDaffodils · 17/04/2021 20:08

3 fish, large sausage, 2 chips is generous for 4 of us. £21.


HTH1 · 17/04/2021 20:09

£20 - £25 here for 4 fish/scampi, 2 (large) portions of chips and 2 portions of mushy peas.


Singlenotsingle · 17/04/2021 20:09

That's extortionate. I wouldn't pay that. About £20 max would be ok!


FelicityBeedle · 17/04/2021 20:10

Extortionate! Sausage £1.50 chips £1.90 fish and chips with a can and a sauce is £7.50


Scarby9 · 17/04/2021 20:10

A battered sausage from our village chippy is £1.60. Large chips (enough for 3 in our house) is £2.30. You are expected to add your own cheese up here...


cushioncovers · 17/04/2021 20:11

Never ever go there again op you've been well and truest ripped off. Shock


Troublewaters2021 · 17/04/2021 20:11

Hmm we clearly need a new chip shop 😂

Longdistance · 17/04/2021 20:12

Where do you live for it to cost £35? Are you sure they didn’t make a mistake at the till? It’s a load of fried potatoes with cheese on top and processed sausages. I wouldn’t pay that much if we had fish either.


Shezlon · 17/04/2021 20:13

I've just priced that up on our chippy's menu (nothing better to do on a Saturday night 😆) and it would be £20.90.

I always thought a saveloy was just another word for a sausage - what's the difference? I don't eat sausages so it's never been something I've noticed!


Hankunamatata · 17/04/2021 20:13

Family meal deal - family chips (massive) then choice of 12 cod chunks or chicken or 20 sausages plus gravey - all for £13


Flowerlane · 17/04/2021 20:13

That’s ridiculous! I would not have paid that and I’m not tight at all! That would have been about £12-£15 depending on the chip shop round here!

Even expensive places like the beach I wouldn’t expect to pay more then £20.

Please tell me it at least tasted amazing and was worth it Grin


JackieTheFart · 17/04/2021 20:14

That is so expensive! Shock

I got 3 x fish and chips and 2 sausage dinners for less than £25 a few weeks ago.


FlyingBurrito · 17/04/2021 20:15


Oops !!!! Chip 😂😂😂😂😂

I think it’s so over priced the chips were 5.50 !!!

Are you in central London Shock? £2.50 at my local chippy, your DH is wrong in this instance
