Decided to try Charlie Brett's and I'm very glad I did I've been to the average chippy and was sadly disappointed the polite young man on the takeaway counter took my order and made me feel very welcome the fish was cooked to perfection and was very well presented thanks for a lovely chippy tea

Found by chance. Cosy and intimate surroundings. Best whitebait starter ive had. Followed by juicy steak. Hubby had fish and chips which was also excellent.

I visited this place because I was working in Headingley and fancied fish and chips to take away. It looks like a nice restaurant, with a good range of specials, and a separate bit on the side for takeouts. When I visited there I wanted a small fish and chips but I was told they only did a regular sized... More

Visited here in September whilst watching cricket at Headingley. We both had fish and chips which was delicious - cooked in the old fashioned way! Service a little slow but food made up for it!

Our order was taken promply and our meal came within 20min It was piping hot well presented and tasty and at reasonable prices we thought - £9.50 each for fish chips... More

Lovely fish & chips, as good as anywhere, better than most. Slow service is the problem. Lunchtime always seems to take the takeaway by surprise; there is a semi-covered outside area with tables in which to eat when, finally, you get it. Only used the restaurant once, and it too was excellent, comfortable, attractive - and very slow.

Friends night out at this Headingley restaurant. Excellent choice on the menu which is obviously fish dominated. All my fellow diners thoroughly enjoyed their meal. I had seafood linguine (one of my favourites) and the quality of the food on this occasion was very good indeed. Certainly not overpriced, pleasant surroundings, efficient service with a smile.
