He looked a bit grumpy she was all bubbly and happy
Chris, grumpy? Not at all. Certainly, Mandi is more bubbly - but they're both happy. We might not have been there for months, but she immediately knows exactly what we always have. Lovely couple. They do more than F&C too. Check them out on FB. You will see that they don't have many (if any) bad reviews.

All their ingredients come fresh from the UK to keep what they sell as traditional (UK) as they can. You might be able to get mushy fish and frozen chips elsewhere cheaper - but this is quality food.

Please don't knock them if you've never been there. This is a business that deserves to thrive.

I hope I didn't come across as knocking them , I literally had a watering mouth, I can see how lovely and crispy (and huge!) the fish is. I'm just poor and have a big family :lol: :lol: :lol:

Not so convinced that it was more than enough for a meal for 2 hard working builders, an amuse bouche perhaps.
I agree, we are fatties and would have wanted a portion each! Which would come to €44 :o :o :o :o :o or €55 before my eldest got stranded in Holland at lockdown :lol: :lol: :lol:

And my middle piggy complains when dh and I nip out once or twice a year for lunch without the kids. Errr yeah coz we can't afford it!!!
You have blown it if your ever come back on the market.
Who would take you out if you want your own fish and chips. :lol:

I have just priced Fish and Chips at local chippies to me. They tend to come in about high £5 to low £6 ,the best locally is £6.10. Given I live in an area with good availability of items (Fleetwood isn’t that far away) I don’t think less than a tenner ,especially as Veem says they bring a lot in from the UK ,near Confolens is that bad

Ats is not really a fish in a batter or chip person.
I had to speed up my munching.
The fish was very thick and flaky, well cooked and tasty.
Even the vinegar was the real deal.

Every other saturday week there are fish and chips in our local café. It's an English couple who have a van, but the Maire at the time wouldn't let them park up. So the café owner proposed that they set up in the kitchen. Bit if a faff but the café is wedged with les anglais from all over the area getting their fix. And the f&c are very good. Shame they don't do a proper f&c shop fishcake, that has to wait for whenever I am in the UK.
