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.

Captain cod has never let me down - the fish and chips is always nice and cook to a very high standard!

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

Does what it says on the tin... you can't beat it for proper fish and chips! It has proper chips, none of these kebab shop jokes, and delicious huge fish. The mushy peas are also spot on. They do sausages etc too but quite frankly if you go to a chippy and don't have fish you need to re-think your... More
