“Still the best !!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

We have been coming to Yorkshire Fisheries for a number of years now and it is still the best, by far. We always call in when in Blackpool, and now that we have a holiday home near by, we will be coming more often. Always nice and clean inside, fish and chips freshly cooked and always delicious. Friendly staff as well, what more can you ask for!!!

“Freshly cooked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

I'd read the reviews and I was lucky to drop onto it on my way from the train station. Well worth the short wait for freshly cooked food. Keep it up.

“Best fish n chips in Blackpool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

I've scouted Blackpool for the best fish n chips and of all the places i've been in this is definitely the best. My dad used to be a fishmonger so i've learnt a few things from him. It's also extremely reasonable.
It's a very comfortable place and has a 'locals' atmosphere and you can hear the waitresses talking to customers that have come back time after time which is endearing.
The menu is varied and it's nice they offer smaller portions of chips (as well as normal) because it can be a bit overwhelming when you are a small eater like myself and you are faced with mounds of chips.
I have been back about 5 times now and i always go for the lighter batter which is not greasy, it's crisp and light with a lovely flavour and the fish is always good. There are options for meat puddings etc.
You leave feeling like you've had a good healthy meal, not greasy or stodgy just perfect.
There is a lady with short black hair (i think she is the manager) and she has a gauge for customers and treats old and new customers with respect and is very friendly and genuine and really wants you to have enjoyed your meal.
If you really want good fish n chips at Blackpool this is the place and the only place i will eat them there. Fantastic!

“Just fish and chips. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Had the 2 cod specials, (fish, chips, mushy peas, bread and butter and a mug of tea for £6.95), and 2 kids meals. Portions ok, but there was no huge wow factor to the taste of everything, just decent cooked food and what you expect really. Lady serving was not too friendly either but hey ho. Would return when in Blackpool as £20 for a family of 4 is excellent.

I am sorry that you did not feel able to grade us more favourably. We are very proud of our award winning fish and chips and always ensure we use the best quality fish and potatoes available on the market. I acknowledge however, that we are not able to please everybody all the time, despite making every effort too. I am glad to hear that you will still visit us as you found us value for money and that you enjoyed your meals.
