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.

“An excellent Fish & Chips.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Have never had a poor meal. Every time my son and his family return to England from Hong Kong it is always their first meal. They even had a Fish & Chip meal at their daughter's christening so the the in-laws in Ireland could taste what he had been going on about. They agreed that its reputation was fully justified.

“The best you ever tasted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We have been eating Linfords fish & chips for years so really had to write our review. Put simply you will not better their food . Fish is battered perfectly and cooked in real beef dripping (the only way) chips are good and chunky and the mushy peas a treat.
Only ask for the large fish if you are really hungry as they look like whale & chips !
Take away and now a sit down restaurant which we have yet to try seems like all the bases are covered.
ENJOY.

“Shouldn't rest on its laurels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Given this is our "local" fish & chip shop we have been here on quite a few occasions. Performance is consistently good in the main. Their fish is normally freshly cooked, as we choose haddock rather than cod, which is often ready. The taste is a bit better, but we haven't eaten cod since an employee of mine, who lived in Iceland for many years, said the local inhabitants there all avoided it. Apparently, cod is a scavenger species - we will leave it to your imagination where they scavenge and the effects of this and whether this is an urban myth or not. We'll just stick to haddock thanks.

Anyway, the fish is truly excellent, albeit that it could often be drained a bit longer to remove the last vestiges of cooking oil. The chips here are only average and Linfords miss a trick not improving them . Truth be told betters ones are to be had at the Boundary fish and chip shop a couple of hundred yards down the road. Offering a "free" slice of lemon with each fish order is a nice touch, though the lemon appears preserved, so we always use fresh ones from the fridge at home.

If Lindfords wanted to be the real market leader they broaden their menu and add some premium grade chips - how about hand-cut fat chips, or using a premium frying fat?
