Best Chippy for access from Northenden Road.

Used this Chippy for years! Consistently good and convenient to call by. Never used the dine-in facility, which looks cheerful enough. The exterior had a re-vamp, just a change of colour really. Food just as good, I believe, though we've been attracted to visit, more hip and on trend... read more

This chippy has been open forever! I remember coming here as a kid and now I bring my children too. Its a chippy that you can sit in to eat. Making it the best of British experience.

First time we tried this chippy on recommendation off trip advisor and we will be returning many times for sure. All food the family ordered couldnt have been better, we had fish, chips, turkey sticks and curry sauce. The owners are really friendly, the cafe to eat in is really clean and tidy, good prices, cant wait to return.

When I was growing up in Yorkshire, fish shops sold good quality fresh cod and proper chips. Think of Harry Ramsden's original place or the shops in places like Whitby. These days, most of the cod you get is in the form of rectangular pieces of frozen fish in a greasy batter with chips that are barely brown. The fish... More

Friendly staff, good fish and chips as they are freshly cooked. Could do with extending seating area

I have been to this chippy several times for lunch during shopping trips. The staff are friendly and the food is good but very limited as it is a chippy. They do have a seated area but it it is a bit limited and uncomfortable.

Chips are always done properly, not rushed and under cooked like a lot of others great to sit in or take away

We only came to 'Captain Cod' because we'd gone into 'Battered Cod' which is in Sale town centre and they'd turned us away because we'd arrived too late (20 mins before they closed on a Saturday). I'm glad they turned us away now after reading the reviews (they're awful) of the 'Battered Cod'. Anyway we ordered Plaice and Cod with... More

The cod I ordered, and I use the term loosely. If it was cod it was the worst I've tasted. Greasy and just didn't taste right, certainly not fresh. I've been to this chippy on an off for years and this was my worst experience. I won't be returning for a while.
