Ive lived in Durham for 30 yrs and never tried Bells.
After reading reviews i decided to drop in on Saturday.
Service was fast. However, the first thing i noticed was the fish was placed on top of your chips. This meant you have to lift it to put the salt and vinegar on your chips. The vinegar is obviously watered down as i drowned a chip in it and sucked it off to taste it.......no taste.
The batter was very chewy. Overall,not bad but had way better. Food was nice and cooked in clean oil.
Try Colmans at South Shields if you think Bells is good ...you'll be blown away!
I'll leave it another 30 years.
