A walk around the nearby Hollingsworth Lake is always followed by a trip to Grandma Pollards. Top quality fish and chips, piping hot and beautifully cooked. Light crispy batter and a free dab thrown in for good measure. Staff always welcoming, it's a must visit...More

A trip to the nearby Gordon Riggs Garden Centre is never complete without a stop off at Grandma Pollards on the way home. I've eaten in many a fish and chip cafe (as my waistline will betray) but this one is something really special. Crazy...More

Grandma Pollard virtually has its own railway station. Well it's actually Walsden station but it is right opposite the chippy front door. Not only this but the canal passes the back. Add the large car park to the mix and you have the perfect travel...More

Wonderful fish & chips as always. We have visited Grandma Pollards many times and the food is consistently good. There is a large carpark at the rear but today access was difficult because of road works. Excellent fish & chips and friendly staff.

I cannot really answer that question,I have asked a number of people and we all are stumped on it,As the batter is light and fluffy (My words) it is hard to tell,no doubt it will be Grandma Pollards secret.

This is not an ordinary chip shop. There is a lovely resturant or an old bus to dine in. In summer eat outside or by the canal.Childrens menu and wide range of meat pies and puddings available. The vanilla slices are great as wellaethe fruit pies All home made. All avilable with tea/coffee, bread and butter. Just go in the chp shop, order and the meal is brought to you at your table. The service is excellent. It is an experience to dine in the bus usually accompanied by 60s/70s music in the backgrund. The bus can be hired for private parties. The shop is open Mon. and Tues till 3.30pm and Wed.Thurs.and Fri. till 8pm. Not open Sat and Sun. It really is an experience (very good one), and well worth a visit. The place is spotless. We have been going many years now and there .are many regulars. I would recommend the chippy for a very enjoyable experience.
