I recently stopped here on the way to the football. The fish, chips and mushy peas were all perfectly cooked. The fish actually tasted like fish! Together with bread and butter, and a pot of tea, for a senior the cost was an amazing £5.25!...More

One of the best fish and chip shops in Accrington. The lady that serves is lovely and friendly. The food is cooked freshly for each order and is of good quality and plentiful. Very fairly priced. Have been several times, without complaint.
