Description: This is not an ordinary chip shop. There is a lovely resturant or an old bus to dine in. In summer eat outside or by the canal.Childrens menu and wide range of meat pies and puddings available. The vanilla slices are great as wellaethe fruit pies All home made. All avilable with tea/coffee, bread and butter. Just go in the chp shop, order and the meal is brought to you at your table. The service is excellent. It is an experience to dine in the bus usually accompanied by 60s/70s music in the backgrund. The bus can be hired for private parties. The shop is open Mon. and Tues till 3.30pm and Wed.Thurs.and Fri. till 8pm. Not open Sat and Sun. It really is an experience (very good one), and well worth a visit. The place is spotless. We have been going many years now and there .are many regulars. I would recommend the chippy for a very enjoyable experience.

This first visit to Grandma Pollards will not be our last. Our order was taken by a very attentive waitress and it being our first visit she explained what was available. We sat on the bus at the back of the restaurant and we looked out onto the picnic area by the canal. We will recommend this to family and... More

What a lovely experience. Our grand daughter loves to visit this place to sit in the bus eating fish and dabs. For a change I had a steak kidney pie with dabs. My wife had fish and mushy peas. They give you a few chips a dab. We always take home a vanilla (to share) can't manage it straight away.... More

After travelling from Oldham to Grandma Pollards, we went got to the chippy and went and sat 'on the restaurant bus' a lady came onto the bus and took our order, then she read the order back to us which she read correct. Then around 15 minutes later an order came to our table and it was the wrong order!!... More

I had the home made meat and potato pie which was absolutely gorgeous! My partner had the huge fish and chips and my son had chicken nuggets (which I was really pleased about when they turned out to be real pieces of coated chicken breast) We sat outside on the bus which was really different and quirky. The kids seem... More

I have been to Grandma Pollards several times now over the past few years with the last visit this month. The food and service is always very good. Tony and his staff are very welcoming. It is a very quirky place and has seating outside also. The fish and chips are consistently good and you must try one of the... More

I have been to Grandma Pollards several times with friends and its lovely, nice fresh fish and chips, nice atmosphere. The only down side is the opening days, it needs to open on a weekend! But as said, other than that its great.

It is always difficult to say which is the best chippie. Everyone will have their favourites, but to us Grandma Pollards is consistently very good and we have been visiting for nearly 18 years four or five times a year. Tony Pollard,and his wife, the owners maintain very high standards of food quality, not only with fish and chips but... More

We came here with a friend of the family who told us the food was amazing. The hodge podge of seating areas gives the restaurant a quirky feel, but don't let that fool you as the food is in fact AMAZING! I love fish and chips and this was the best I had my entire time in the UK. The... More
