I am a Yorkshire ex pat and crave fish and chips cooked the old fashioned way in lard. Since the demise of Harry Ramsdens , Billy Murgs has stepped up to the plate(excuse the pun). We took our Welsh friends there and they were amazed how delicious the food was and how large the portions are. Lovely white flakes of... More

We didn't actually eat in but opted for two cod and chips takeaway. The cod was very nice but the cod was engulfed in more batter than I thought possible to coat fish in. The batter was fresh and crispy but there was just too much of it. We saw people in the takeaway asking for extra batter on their... More

As on the title. We live 20 miles away in Harrogate and although there are a fair few fish and chips where we live, they can't beat Billy Murgs. We go there once a month for a family meal, usually the 4 of us and sometimes on special occasions the in laws pop along as well. Yes the restaurant is... More

The fish and chips here are excellent. I had the largest fish you could buy with chips and peas and it was huge. Quick service, reasonable prices, cant fault it for a fish and chip experience.

Went with family for mothers day. Had a little bit of a wait for a table but was worth the wait. Excellent fish and chips. Loads of choice on the menu which was a surprise. Service was really quick and efficient and we will definitely go back.

We were looking forward to our meal after hearing such good reviews. I ordered the haddock goujons (£9.95, same as larger haddock), they were like off cuts of left over fish, dry and chewy, even though most were left on my plate the waitress just quickly cleared them away, my partner was also dissapointed with his fish, it was very...

A proper Yorkshire fish and chip meal is one of life's true delights. Too frequently these days you will find either poor quality fish or, more often, really heavy undercooked batter. So its great to find that the true traditions still apply at Murgatroyds. I had lunch here recently with my wife and her mother and our food was very... More

Went on a Saturday lunchtime with my partner and my parents for Mums birthday. Fish quality was excellent cooking good Good attentive service We booked and were glad we did as gets very busy Only downsides were the booth we were given first of all was too narrow for my larger frame and was quite noisy due to families/ children

Called into this restaurant on way to airport. I ordered haddock on its own and my daughter just had something light. This was the best tasting fish I have had in many a long year. Makes the grey, defrosted offerings we as a family usually have at our local chippy seem almost criminal. The fish was WHITE and tasted of... More

My fave chippy in Leeds. Only thing I can't stomach is bread and margarine, why???? I suppose it's traditional.
