Oldham fish and chips started 1967. Staff friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable. Fish is fished in substanable fishing grounds. Great quality fish , we had cod, one with batter and one steamed. Chips and mushy peas all piping hot. Hot tea and bread. Loved them.

I'll never go anywhere else! Which is good because I live nearby! Generous portions and great choice of food (the veggie spring rolls are amazing).

£1.70 for a handful of poorly-cooked chips. This place wouldn't last 5 minutes north of Watford Gap.

Lovely family meal as part of a day trip to the Essex coast. Children’s meals were excellent value and large portions. Fish was fresh and well cooked. Restaurant is not fancy in any way but clean and with good service.

The food, service and restaurant is a very high standard. The menu is extensive. The skate knobs were a mystery but delicious.

You may need to ring them in advance. The upstairs room can be booked for private functions but I am not sure about bookings for couples.
