Check your food for human hair... If the seating is full downstairs do not expect the upstairs to be opened no matter how many people are waiting. Rude staff, cold fries. dont care attitudes. there are plenty of chip shops that want my cash

Busy, popular typical English fish and chips. Quality fish, chunky chips, mushy peas, just what I fancied and was not let down. Highly recommended.

Really recommend this fish and chip shop for anyone who loves a traditional fish and chips. I would recommend the cod cutlets/fillets. Really good service inside and also great as a takeaway (collected).

We are regulars at Oldhams. Very popular with their lunchtime specials so get there early. We have always had fantastic fish and chips in the restaurant out the back of the shop. Very good service as well. I would give this a 10/10 rating.

Ours came to £35 we each had a coke to drink. The menu price doesn't include v.a.t. so be careful
