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

Picked up a takeaway tonight, chips were tasteless, sausage was inedible, full of hard lumps and gristle, asked for curry sauce and got no more than a thimble full over two chips, really should be able to get sausage chips and curry right! Won't be returning, horrible!

After a busy day and not preparing any supper we decided to try Seniors for fish & chips. My hubby is an expert on his fish and is very particular. We ordered a large Cod & Chips with mushy peas for the man himself and a medium cod chips and mushy peas for me. We were served within a couple... More

This is not the first time we've decided to give Seniors a chance to redeem itself after leaving x amount of time in between visits but this time revisiting the takeaway was the worst experience yet. When you spend between £10/£15 on fish & chips you expect to get home and not be greeted with a piece of fish not... More

Called in for take away choosing a lightly battered hake, medium chips and peas. Fish cooked to order so was fresh and piping hot. Good portion of proper 'chip shop' chips although the portion was too much for me! Peas also good. Several special offers on for 'meal deals' . Place appeared very clean with cheery friendly staff. Has an... More

WED 24/8/16 7.55pm Having just visited your take away, and purchased a medium haddock and a portion of mushy peas. I have got to register my disappointment in the quality of both items. The fish had obviously been forgotten about in the deep fat fryer, and as a consequence was overcooked, the batter colouring being dark and retaining lots of... 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.
