Ten years ago I rated this the best fish and chip restaurant in the area, I had chums who came across from Leeds to eat here. That was when we lived up the road in Cowden.

Last night we returned after a long time away - brought my Grandson Lewis to sample the best fish and chips of his life!

Although the place was pretty busy - we were seated and served very pleasantly by Katie on table 16.

Food was great - the fish was fantastic, great chips and delicious Yorkshire Caviar [aka mushy peas].

Strong pot of tea in a pot that didn't leak - another plus point - completed the meal

Absolutely perfect - just as I remembered it - and a credit to Geoff's mother who was working last night and spoke with us as we left!

We've been here a few times for Fish and Chips now and they're the best Fish and Chips in town, in fact you wont get a better fish any where on the east coast. The only problem is, everybody else agrees with me so the place is always busy so be prepared for a long wait. It isn't Whiteheads fault though and they do provide a great service. As i am impatient, i plan my visits here to be early on (Midday) or late on to beat the queues. But hopefully, you all possess more patients than me and this wont be an issue.
