Description: Linford's Traditional Fish and Chip shop is located at the centre of the historic market town of Market Deeping. The takeaway has been open since 1989 and in the summer of 2012 we opened a new restaurant. At Linfords we offer a selection of fish; cod (regular, medium and jumbo), haddock, plaice, huss (rock salmon) and scampi with weekly specials including lemon sole, hake, halibut and monkfish. Other options include sausages, pukka pies, fish cakes, burgers, chicken burgers, vege burgers, spring rolls, southern fried chicken, chicken nuggets and chicken tikka bites. All of our food is cooked in vegetable oil and all fish is sustainably caught.We also offer gluten free fish and chips on a Monday night from 4pm - 8:30.

“Disapointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

After trip advisor reports we decided to try eating here instead of our out of the bag meal elsewhere. Brusquely told to sit at a table by a waitress whist we would have preferred to sit elsewhere. Good varied menu but chose the basic fish and chip dinner. Food arrived reasonably promptly but was disappointing. The fish was mainly a light greasy batter. Although elsewhere a reviewer stated the chips were cooked in dripping that must have been another day as these were an insipid yellow. Overall not very welcoming and will not be tempted back.

“Loin fords restaurant - fresh!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Not a cheap snack anymore, fish & chip prices at Linford's is comparable with a pub meal. Saying that, our meal was cooked fresh, was piping hot, crispy and delicious.
Portion size was generous and quickly served.
Waitress staff were friendly & efficient. It was a lunchtime when we went in, and it became quite busy, quite quickly & the waitresses managed well.

“The best fish and chips I've ever tasted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Simply magnificent. Succulent fish, crispy batter, complemented by seriously tasty chips. Linfords cook with beef-dripping and it makes for the best fish and chips I've ever tasted. Try them. You won't be disappointed.

“great fish and chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

visited during a day out to burghley house and worth the minor diversion. best fish and chips we've had for a while, upto the standard of the famous magpie in whitby! crisp batter and chips, nicely decorated (ask for the booth!) and staff who couldn't be more attentive. our waitress came back to ask if we'd like more bread or chips. we happily obliged :o) highly reccommended
