Have been there a few times for a takeaway. I don't have a big appetite so am pleased that they do small portions for a reasonable price. The quality is excellent and the chips are mostly on the thick side so full of taste unlikely...More

I was in Urmston this afternoon and fancied a chippie late lunch, so called into Charlie’s. I definitely wasn’t disappointed and will be coming back again. Lovely.

Your comments really concern me, as since May 2016, we have presented our fish & chips in premium, two compartment, corrugated fish and chip boxes. This keeps the fish entirely separate from the chips. We simply do not wrap in paper any longer, specifically due...More

Your experience and critical feedback has served as a big "wake up call". Charlie's has always had procedures in place to guard against such poor performance. However, on this occasion, we clearly let yourself and ourselves down in a material way. Over the last 2...More
