I'm originally from the east coast of Yorkshire where fish and chips from places like Scarborough and Whitby are fantastic!! Balfours is the only place I go to get the same quality and value for money!! They are really friendly and down to earth. Why would you go anywhere else... I don't! Thanks guys
