We have just been awarded 5 stars from Wyre Borough Council, Environmentally Health Department "Scores on the Doors", scheme (June 2011).


We normally have five different varieties of fish on offer from traditional favourites like Haddock and Plaice to Silver Hake, Halibut and now Alaskan Pollock – See chalkboard for monthly specials. All are sourced from sustainable fishing grounds – our fish merchant has over forty years experience of supplying the finest restaurants and hotels across the North of England. Our Potato merchant operates as a family concern which sources potatoes locally whenever possible and within a twenty mile radius, sundry products come from a family business now in its third generation of supplying the fish and chip shop trade. Together we make a formidable team with the same aim, to bring you the best fish and chips.

If you need any more information feel free to ask next time you pay us a visit.

The third Saturday of the month has Gluten Free fish & chips available as well as the standard menu. All of our suppliers are Lancashire based. We offer some of the UK's finest Fish & Chips in clean, modern surroundings (either eat in or take away) served by friendly and efficient staff.
