Very peaceful, well organised and friendly fish and chip diner. Nice staff and excellent meals. Well worth a sit down meal but, takeaways are also available.

Our speciality is simply serving excellent fish and chips to the people of Headingley, and with over 50 years of cooking experience, you are guaranteed a great meal with every visit. You can now benefit from a friendly relaxing atmosphere, a newly modernised menu, and lowered prices when you visit our air conditioned, fully licensed restaurant and takeaway. We are also now serving both skinless and boneless haddock and cod. We only use the finest quality produce, our fish is sustainably sourced from the cold deep waters of Iceland and Norway, our potatoes are locally grown and freshly cut and cooked on-site daily, and our delicious homemade desserts are definitely worth a try.
