I always say Lancashire is the best foe fish and chips but OMG I might have to admit Yorkshire has beaten us! Just the best fish. Had small fish and small chips and was full to bursting. Ever had a dab? Not had one since...More

We ordered 3 lots of fish and chips which I feel were overpriced at almost £17. The food was just okay and a bit soggy by the time we got them home. Can't see us returning here any time soon as there are equally good...More

Visited for fish & chips. The fish was excellent-but soggy owing to being doused in excessive vinegar! Chips were O.K. but rather a lot of hard bits. Why is it not possible to allow customers to apply their own salt and vinegar? Certainly not cheap...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.
