Before Covid-19 when we fancied some fish and chips, we would combine our shopping trip to Morrisons and have lunch at their café. They do the best fish and chips at a very reasonable price.
Their café has now reopened and we recently had our first fish and chips since lockdown!
We had to wait to be seated and were shown to a table for two and on it was a piece of paper to complete our contact details for Track and Trace. The tables were not exactly two metres apart, more like a metre and some had plastic screens in between.
We knew we wanted fish and chips so gave our order straightaway. We had to wait 30 minutes before our food arrived because they were mega busy but it was worth waiting for. The fish and chips arrived beautifully presented on a piece of grease proof paper, just like how they serve it at gastropubs except that we didn’t pay gastropub prices. I was sure it used to cost £5.50 but it has now gone down to £4.50 to take into account the government’s current drop in VAT for the hospitality industry, and you get chips and beans or peas with it too.
The fish was a very generous portion and the batter was very light. I don’t think the fish was cod, and not coley either as the flesh of the latter has a tinge of grey. I think it is probably pollock but very tasty all the same.
There were other items on the menu, but we tend to stick to the tried and tested fish and chips. Their current menu also includes a £10 cream tea for 2. This includes sandwiches and cream cakes.
