Depending when you go, there can be a big queue, but they are like the theme parks and are used to making the time pass quickly. Good to take the young children as they are always made welcome and given a little pot of chips...More

Went with my wife and her grandparents. The service was quite quick, the food was generously portioned and most of all the food was very, very good. Would come again.

Good value and quantity just a shame it’s a little far out so by time we got home food had cooled down but that’s at no fault of the business that’s just down to the distance we had. Good quality food

I have heard people raving about this chippy for so long and whenever I pass, it’s always closed (weekends) so as I was walking along the canal on bank holiday Monday, I decide to try it with it being open. The outdoor seating area has...More

We visited after a walk to Gaddings Dam. We easily parked as there are lots of spaces at the side, opposite and even a larger area further down the street near the canal for customer parking. It was a glorious day so we sat out...More

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.
