The line was out the door and now I know why. Hot, fresh fish and chips. We had the snapper and chips which were nicely battered with the right amount of salt. Very hot and crispy. The chips were equally as good. Other types of fish and seafood were available as well as chicken thighs. The fry bread was good too! Will definitely be back!!!

We went to Kawakawa and stopped at Stumpy's for fish and chips. We had the flounder and it was very good. It came with chips and we ordered a fried bread. Service was fast and it came rolled up in paper.

We were amazed by the cleanliness plus all the signage to remind staff to wash their hands.
Fish was brilliant and lovely and thick. No scrimping here.
Chips were perfectly cooked with no debris.
Definitely recommend to all.

My DH and I were in Kawakawa at lunchtime and looked up and down the street for somewhere that appealed for lunch, without success. Having pretty much concluded we would need to head to another town for lunch, we were walking back to the car when I spotted Stumpy's and we were so glad we did.
It's a simple fish and chip shop with a couple of tables outside, but the variety of fish is pleasantly surprising, the food is very well cooked, not greasy as fish and chips can be, and it is spotlessly clean. The lady at the counter was very friendly and helpful, and we really enjoyed our lunch. Other places in town should use Stumpy's as a model of how to do it right, in our opinion. And to add to the good experience, pardon the pun, but the meal was as cheap as chips!

Too lazy to go fishing, diving, digging? You need to go to Stumpy's. Beauuuutifu and best kaimoana/takeaways in NZ. Will always call in on my way to the 'Big Smoke', Kaikohe.
