Stopped here by chance and found some great fish n chips. Will definitely come back again and recommend trying them out.

Only one word to describe that - magic chips!

Been here quite a few times when travelling from Leeds to Lancashire and we always have excellent fish and chips when we call, the fish is always of great quality and usually cooked whilst you wait, we then either eat them at the tables provided outside or in the car, there is a restaurant too, just wish it was nearer where we live or perhaps that's not a good idea!!!! :)

When the original grandad Nichols opened it was just spectacularly good and remained so throughout its tenure. Since the refurb I have been twice and whatever it had it has lost completely. The food is now just average at best. Mixed emotions as this is really good for me as the old place was addictive and very bad for my cholesterol and waistline..... Everyone I know who has visited since the change has similar views. I need to find out where the people that ran it went and follow them there!!! (By the way, the previous review is clearly a fake written by the staff to counteract the negative reviews since the change of management- no one says "no nonsense Yorkshire staff" in a genuine review - it is like they are trying to write an advert....)

The chippie has undergone some refurbishment recently, and standards seem to have dropped significantly since. Service is now slow and a bit muddled, portions have decreased and the food isn't anywhere near as good as it used to be.

Why oh why didn't you leave the place be, it was a gem! Please bring back the previous staff and previous methods!
