On a saturday night at 9:40PM were shockingly bad... brown (overcooked) chips and dry cod..... I should have known better, but they shouldn't serve food if it's substandard....

I'll stick to the little chalfont chippy in future - it's always good. (and staffed by adults) :

Good choice, they have recently finished the work on extending into the next building to provide more tables if you want to eat in

As promised, I was here last week. Service was a little slow but the food was good and not expensive.

What time of day did you go there Paul ? I've had decent chips from there during normal day times hours...

(Still nothing on Little Chalfont Chippy though)

I must say, I think Nautica is very high quality and pretty reliable. Their fish in particular is beautifully fresh. I agree, a late® night visit probably doesn't do them justice - try it again earlier in the evening and you'll enjoy it

Maybe... I don't think there's any excuse for serving rubbish later though. I was unimpressed and it made me feel (not for the 1st time in the case of Nautica) that they don;t treat their customers with any respect.

The food really was terrible and me and my wife ended up binning most of it.

I'm with you on this one. The last (and it will be the last) time I had fish and chips at Nautica the fish was disgusting. How hard is it to fry some fish??? Buy fresh fish, cook it for a few minutes, serve it. I think we're far to forgiving of this type of lazy and insulting food in the UK.

That is a shock i've always had superp food from there, the chips vary with the season but otherwise it's always excellent. In my opinion they serve the best burgers i've ever had (take-away). when i ate at the chippy in little chalfont my chips were incredibly greasy and i wasn't impressed. i've not had chips from there since, jumbo sausage was fine though :D

The thing about Nautica is the fact that the staff are rather lacking...... They don't treat you with respect, and treat the food in the same way. Go to the Chippy in Chalfont instead.

When we first moved here in Aug 05, we had Fish and Chips from Nautica about once a month. However, after having had a few meals that weren't very nice and this was at about 7pm on a Friday evening, we started going to Hings in Waterside. The difference is phenomenal, there is always a large queue in Hings, but you only have to wait for 5-10 mins, the food is piping hot and the fish is fantastic. Give it a try, I know it's a bit of a drive away, but it's well worth the time.

We've given up on the Nautica, the fish is always old and the chips poor. Best place is Hings in Waterside Chesham. :D

YourChesham site on facebook reporting that Mr Hing of Hings chipshop was attacked in his shop by a group of teenagers on Saturday night. What a dreadful story, had only been in on Sat Lunchtime for a fantastic portion of Chips eaten in the Sun in the garden at the Pheasant.

I hope this does not mean the end for Hings as it really is great fish and chips :(
