When we first started going out, my fiancé used to drive me over to Grandma Pollard's, raving about the place. Now we try and drive over every time we feel like a chippy. Everything about it is top quality. We always opt to take out...More

Exactly as the name suggests. You go here for fish and chips. Good portions of good quality fish and chips. Staff are nice and friendly. Highly recommended.

Adequate fish and chips but nothing special. Very slow service despite there being a large staff and assembly line organisation. Very expensive too.

I cannot really answer that question,I have asked a number of people and we all are stumped on it,As the batter is light and fluffy (My words) it is hard to tell,no doubt it will be Grandma Pollards secret.

This is not an ordinary chip shop. There is a lovely resturant or an old bus to dine in. In summer eat outside or by the canal.Childrens menu and wide range of meat pies and puddings available. The vanilla slices are great as wellaethe fruit pies All home made. All avilable with tea/coffee, bread and butter. Just go in the chp shop, order and the meal is brought to you at your table. The service is excellent. It is an experience to dine in the bus usually accompanied by 60s/70s music in the backgrund. The bus can be hired for private parties. The shop is open Mon. and Tues till 3.30pm and Wed.Thurs.and Fri. till 8pm. Not open Sat and Sun. It really is an experience (very good one), and well worth a visit. The place is spotless. We have been going many years now and there .are many regulars. I would recommend the chippy for a very enjoyable experience.
