Clean environment, very friendly service and excellent food. I had the huss as opposed to my usual haddock, and was not disappointed. The prices are very reasonable indeed, and the portions are very generous - although NOT so absurdly large that an average-sized hippo couldn't...More

Thank you for your comments, agree nothing looks worse than a plate piled so high, also you feel you have to finish because you have paid for your meal.

Linford's Traditional Fish and Chip shop is located at the centre of the historic market town of Market Deeping. The takeaway has been open since 1989 and in the summer of 2012 we opened a new restaurant. At Linfords we offer a selection of fish; cod (regular, medium and jumbo), haddock, plaice, huss (rock salmon) and scampi with weekly specials including lemon sole, hake, halibut and monkfish. Other options include sausages, pukka pies, fish cakes, burgers, chicken burgers, vege burgers, spring rolls, southern fried chicken, chicken nuggets and chicken tikka bites. All of our food is cooked in vegetable oil and all fish is sustainably caught.We also offer gluten free fish and chips on a Monday night from 4pm - 8:30.
