We decided that if the weather was decent on Wednesday we would drive over to the Fylde coast and have a Fish & Chip dinner, we have done this on several other occasions but decided this time to try a different outlet, I perused the reviews and found that Thornton Fisheries was worth a try - and was I right!...

Popped in for take away on a busy Friday tea time. Order placed did not have to wait long before the order was ready being served freshly made food piping hot , and of good quantity and quality. Food served in the requested biodegradable cartons. If you want a good 'chippy' then a visit to Thornton Fisheries will serve you... More

Visited on many occasions when in the area. Whether eat in or takeaway, this is the best fish and chips - ever. Anywhere. Well that's our view, anyway. Plaice is beautifully cooked with amazingly crisp, light batter. Chips are spot-on. It's such a simple dish, but most restaurants get it wrong. Not this place. They've got a winning formula of...

Sometimes nothing else but a chippy dinner will do. Took my father in law here for lunch today & we all orders the fish & chip special, with peas or curry sauce, bread & butter and a drink. Great value at only £8. Our meals arrived promptly with the fish lightly battered as requested. The fish was beautifully cooked with... More

This has always been our favourite chippy and continues to be top of the list. We have never been disappointed with the Fish and Chips and whether it be a takeaway or an eat-in experience they are always good. The staff are friendly and the food is great. If you haven't tried this chippy then you really should!
