 This is definitley the place to go for fish and chips. It's small interior gives it a very homey feeling and there is always service with a smile. It is family owned and run which it makes it even better. The secret batter recipe gives the fish a great flair. There isn't only fish either, they have a variety of other dishes that inclue pasta, meat pies etc. You should give this place a try, you won't regret it.

 HI I USED TO GO TO THE THISTLE IN THE LATE 50S AND EARLY 60S. WAS A GREAT PLACE. USED TO GO TO THOMPSON FISH AND CHIPS IN LATE 40S. HAVE FOND MEMORIES OF ALL THE KEARNY FISH AND CHIP SHOPS.

 I am from Kearny and now live in CA. I still enjoy the fish and chip dinner and the Thistle is as good as any. It's little, and homey but that's ok with a small town guy like me. My memories of Thompson's fish and chips about 60 years ago are good. Not too happy with the price now though.
