Excellent chippy with good sized portions. I work in the area and nip in from time to time, thr chips are delicious and so are the fish. The two young ladies who serve during the week are also very nice and welcoming, hard working also....Its the best chippy in the Whitefield/ Prestwich area in my opinion amd i' ve tried them all.More

First time here, but had heard some good comments. My friend and I were going to have cod, chips, peas takeaway between us, neither of us have huge appetites. But once we were in, another customer waiting told us about a £4 fish dinner??? So...we decided to eat in and have that. Beautiful fish, the batter was so crispy, we both commented on it. The proprietor told us lemonade was the secret of the batter. I love Yorkshire fish and chips, but this bettered it. The chips were delicious. I couldn't finish mine, but my friend did!! You also got a side, we both chose Chinese curry.....oh so good. You also got coffee or tea. The coffee wasn't instant, it was either filter or percolated. You'd pay £2.50 alone for this in a coffee shop. All this for £4.00. Goodness knows what you get if you order normal size fish and chips, you'd definitely need a doggy bag. Everything is cooked fresh. Another customer came in and ordered chicken to take away. Cooked fresh, she had to wait, an enormous portion. My friend and I go for lunch about once a fortnight in whitefield. Usually spend well over £20 over £30 if I have a glass of wine (carol has to drive,so she doesn't get any....shame). We just couldn't believe u got such good quality food and coffee for £4 each. Ok, u don't get a table cloth, a jug of water, or a black pepper mill, but it is spotless friendly, and we bot agreed one of the tastiest meals we'd had in a long time. Can't recommend it enough. Excellent, and xcellent, xcellent.More

We visited at my partners behest to have fish and chips. It was a Friday lunchtime and the shop wasn’t particularly busy. We ordered Haddock and Chips and Cod and chips, my partner had cheese on the chips and curry sauce ad I had beans....We shared bread and butter. The food was ok, nothing special although I had higher expectations from the earlier reviews. It took 25 minutes fro ordering the food to getting it. Would I go back? Not out of my way for the fish and chips, although the home made burgers looked tasty.More
