“Great Fish and Chips”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

The restaurant was closed so we ordered from the chip shop next door and was not disappointed. The fish was well cooked and the batter not sweaty, but crisp, the chips were ok, but had a lot of eyes and blemish's in them. I also thought the fish portion to be a little small, but it was very good.

The guys cooking them were very polite and professional and it was obvious from the way the even put the vinegar on the meal they had a set way of delivery.

I really enjoyed the food and would go back again - yes. I did think it a little expensive for what it was, but it did not spoil the enjoyment.

“Going downhill”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

My mother, father, myself and 2 daughters used to frequent this restaurant at least twice a month. All of us having a main meal and dessert. We used to love it. However it started to go downhill when the staff was changed and the lady called Bernie was not there. Everytime we would go in it would either be Simply Red or Michael Buble CD playing, which got a little monotinous. We found ourselves sitting at a table for at least 10 mins waiting for someone to take our order. The drinks would come followed by the meals some 10 mins or more later. The staff seem to stand at the till area talking. Several times over last few visits we have had to get up to get some attention, even having to pop our heads into the take away cooking area! Because of this we now tend to go once every few months because the food is still ok (can be greasier than normal sometimes). We have been in again this evening. Well, we couldn't even get in door, we asked if the restaurant was open in the takeaway and they said yes. We advised them we couldnt get in the door, yet we had to go back again after waiting 10mins outside for someone to actually pay attention and come to unlock the yale lock which had somehow locked after a couple of other customers had gone in. We got in to find most of the bigger tables squeaked, also there was a vinegar bottle stain and plate rings and food residue left on the table which had not been cleaned properly. Once our mains were finished we sat for over 15 minutes before actually getting up and asking if we could order desserts. Needless to say the service is far from how it used to be. Which is a shame as the food is okay.

“Classic seaside Fish & Chips!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

Atkinsons was part of my childhood (translation: it's been there a long time!). Every time we'd go on holiday to Morecambe, we'd go there and either buy fish & chips to eat while walking to Heysham, or (on special occasions) eat in the restaurant. While the rest of Albert Road seems to have faded away, Atkinsons still soldiers on. I popped in on a weekday lunchtime, and had fish & chips, with tea, bread &butter. It was excellent - well cooked fish, great batter, tasty chips, served quickly and efficiently by very pleasant staff. I'll definitely be back again!
