Good quality fish and chips

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... read 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.

Over the years we have eaten at this chippy and the food is consistently good. The service is quick and friendly too. Well worth a visit. My only negative is it can often be too cold to linger in the Winter!!

I've walked past the Captain Cod several times over the years, but it wasn't until I moved to Sale last year that I realised what I've been missing out on. ALL the food they do there is consistently divine - I went to the Captain Cod a few times in January and never noticed anything different about the quality of... More
