The chip shop serves customers who can't make it as far as the town centre where Abingdon Fish and Chips in The Square, which has a five-star rating, has been doing a roaring trade and getting good reviews since it opened in March last year.

Following the refurbishment the owners of Reeves posted: "Reeves on Ock Street will be open on Wednesday. We are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused due to the delay."

Mary Thomas posted on Spotted Abingdon: "Lovely food and nice people" but Trish Summers was less impressed.

She said: "If it is the same people I hope they have retrained in cooking the 'traditional' fish and chips their sign proclaims."

Readers of Abingdon Blog have also been talking about Salamis getting a refurbishment.

Alistair Fear, who runs the blog, wrote: "The Reeves family ran this fish and chip shop in Ock Street up to about the 1980s. Over the road was Ruddocks – now Pizza Hut.

"This business has been Salami’s Fish Bar since the 1990s."

Janet on Abingdon Blog said: "Salamis did the best fish and chips in Abingdon. It was reasonably easy to park too."

No-one from Reeves was available for comment.
