“Watch for the big fish . . . .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

One morning driving along I saw a sign with a big fish signboard. Entering Furness Vale, I saw the same fish adorning the FV Fish Bar. "Aha", I said . . . "maybe a good place to stop for lunch on the way back" . . . How right I was. The ladies are delightful and the fish is so fresh and tasty that it must have only been caught that morning. The chips are done in dripping, which as everyone knows is the only thing to fry them in. Top marks and yes . . . I'll plan my journeys that way in future to ensure a lunch stop.

“Top class fish and chips from 2 top class ladies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Anyone who knows the Furness Vale/Whaley Bridge/New Mills area will know that its not an easy place to open a chippy, the existing establishments are all tip top. You'd have to pull something special out of the bag.

Something like home made pies, posh fish finger butties, specials, top draw banter and 2 big smiles every time you go in, Cheryl and Nathalie have pulled something magic together and have become my chippy of choice. Cannot recommended them or their food enough!
