Having to live in a chip shop free zone, it's lovely to travel to Northwich for some quality fish and chips �

Except food and service. A lot of chippies are poor these days but not here. Good special offers particularly during the day...only down side is limited opening hours so I advise checking first

This is my second visit to the Codfather. The gluten free fish is amazing! Crunchy perfection! What a treat for me to be able to experience this classic English dish. They sell the batter as well so that you can make it at home!
