Harden's survey result
“A very traditional Yorkshire chippie” which doesn’t offer anything fancy but “just good fish ’n’ chips” (the former “huge and well-battered”, and “you can go for more exotic if you wish”); “a little tip – avoid early evening when the ‘pensioners’ special menu’ is served – it will be heaving!”
“Consistently crispy batter” cushions the national dish at this longstanding luminary, but there’s more to it than the headline event; the northern mini-chain it belongs to was founded by the Stephenson family back in 1960, and is now under son Graham after the death of patriarch Jackson-Reed in 2017.
“Superbly fresh fish ’n’ chips” remain the hallmark of this “bright and welcoming restaurant” – part of a well-established northern chain.
Some reporters feel it’s “not so cheap these days”, but this authentic fixture – part of a small northern empire – still draws the crowds with some of the “best fish ’n’ chips in Yorkshire”.
