My husband and I enjoyed delicious fish and chips and scampi and chips dinner. Very fresh and cooked to perfection. We savoured every mouthful. Our waitress was a lovely helpful girl.

I have to say not only was the food not good (chips dry and as if they had been sat there for ages,sausage extremely poor quality, steak pudding dry and gristle in meat) it seemed overpriced to me. I go to two others in the area one in Carleton... More

My partner and I decided to have a treat and have fish & chips on the Friday before Christmas. We hadn't been here for a while, so thought we'd give it a try. We weren't disappointed. We ordered fish chips and mushy peas medium size. The plates were full and plentiful. The fish was lovely and white, chips were cooked... More

It's been a couple of years or so since my wife & I visited Seniors in Thornton, but we had always previously enjoyed the wide variety of fish available including John Dory, halibut & butterfish. However, when we called recently we were disappointed to find the choice limited to cod, haddock & plaice & no mention of anything more exotic... More

The scampi and chips I had from Seniors were pretty good, service was excellent and staff were friendly. I thought that the meal was a little overpriced but the quality was good. One of our cups was a little dirty to be honest and didn't look like it had been completely rinsed. All in all cleanliness however seemed good and... More

Set next to the sails of the listed Marsh Mill Windmill, Seniors Thornton is in a really handy spot for the UKs best fish and chips! Whether you live locally or make a little diversion off the main through route from the M55 motorway, it's easy to get to, especially with the large car park across the road. Purpose built by the Seniors family in 2006, it's an impressive light and airy home to the 100 seater modern restaurant and the takeaway that was crowned the best in the UK in January 2012. Don't be deceived by the quality of the surroundings and expect to pay over the odds - Seniors are on a mission to raise the stakes for the fish and chip industry and believe in delivering the best possible quality at affordable prices - and that includes the environment in which you eat. This is not your typical chippy and if you really love fish and chips you must pay Seniors Thornton a visit. On the route to the start of the famous Blackpool illuminations and nearby seaside destinations of Cleveleys, Fleetwood and of course Blackpool itself, Seniors Thornton is a perfect place for families and coach parties arriving for the lights, or heading home after a great day out. BEST FISH AND CHIP SHOP IN THE UK 2012! Take-away and large restaurant facility Private/society party bookings welcome Coach parties welcome Fully licensed Accept all major credit cards Full disabled access Experienced staff with a passion to serve great fish and chips
