Fish & Chip Lunch

Popped in for lunch today. The place was busy, which is always a good sign. The service was prompt and the food good and hot. The price wasn't cheap but I would go again. It you are on an economy drive the chippy a few doors away is cheaper but only does take aways - do you really want to... read more

Absolutely gorgeous fresh Cod or Haddock, with chips, peas, and a round of bread & butter, plus a hot drink. Their menu calls it a Fish Dinner. There are other menu options! Always busy, sometimes you might have to wait for a table as it's usually busy. Great - friendly staff. The best!

We used to eat here all the time how ever they favour old people who drink tea rather than eating guests. On multiple occasions we were asked to move to allow older people to use the restaurant before us which is wrong as we were paying guests as well. The food is clean and basic but service how ever is... More

Great value High Street Chippy! In the centre of what is the main shopping street. Great chippy for walk past people. What we had we really we really enjoyed. Good value!

Best fish and chip sit down restaurant. I always love going to Les's because I always enjoy the food. It is a bit dearer that the norm but it is worth it. Lovely and clean and lovely service by the really nice Chinese lady. I recommend it.

I have visited this local chippy quite a few times over the years and feel it has gone steadily down hill which is a shame. The town is really taking off with all the new shops, but I feel that Les's is being left behind or perhaps he has made his money and just doesn't care. I agree with the... More

I'm at a bit of a loss as to why this place is rated so low, the fish and chips in this place are delicious, yet rather than concentrate on that people choose to pick fault with "impatient customers" and "miserable staff". I'd rather have quality fish & chips than respectful diners and fake smiles from staff. Visit this place,... More

Me and my mother visited the fish and chip restaurant and were advised by a man waiting in line that it was "worth the wait". There were around 20 small tables inside , fairly clean with the traditional saucesand condiments on the table and a very British type menu. The pictures on the wall of colorful sea life were very...

Generally nice and clean, serving nice fish. Most chippies over-face you with the size of their portions but this one is different. If you want fish and chips ask for your portions separate because if you don't the get the tray and put the fish in first and then put a very small amount of chips around. I've never seen... More

We occasionally call in when shopping in Widnes. Always busy at weekends but the place is nothing special really. The décor is very dated and a bit like a school canteen. Average to small size portions and not cheap either! The man who fries the fish never smiles also which only adds to the rather sombre atmosphere! They are obviously... More
