About Long's Fish and Chips

Just a few yards from the Opera House, is one of Belfast's hidden gems.

The longest established fish and chip shop in Belfast, John Long’s is among the city’s top seven wonders: the Europa Hotel, Linen Hall Library, Peace Walls, Ulster Museum, Harland and Wolff and the Crown Liquor Saloon.

It is no surprise that Belfast people have been visiting John Long's for their fish supper for a hundred years. People here just want good food, good value and good craic. All three are here in spades. 

At Long's, we like to think we make the best fish suppers in Belfast (if not the whole country). We just use the best fresh fish, light and crispy batter, Maris Piper potatoes and our famous homemade pasties. Good food, and lots of it.

For 2016 the NI Year of Food and Drink, John Long’s has created gluten free fish suppers including chilli cod, lemon haddock and natural smoked hake.

Long's is a bit of a local secret, but the word has got out. We've had a few of those actor types drop in for supper: Brendan Fraser, Sean Bean, and the lads from Take That (before they got too old!). Eamon Holmes even said that if he had only a couple of days to live, he'd end up at Long's for his last meal. From the Big Man that is praise indeed. Dara Ó Briain the Irish comedian and television presenter also popped in recently to try our world renowned fish supper!

Anyway, you are more than welcome to try Long's for yourself. Find us close to the Europa hotel on Athol Street. We'll be very happy to welcome you to Belfast's oldest chipper.

“The quality of John Long’s is exceptional and unmatched…” Joris Minne, Belfast Telegraph.
