A little out of the way it may be but, boy, is it worth the trip. An immaculately clean cafe/restaurant where the fish and chips are simply superb. The batter on the haddock/cod is so light and crisp and the fish so fresh that it is a real culinary treat. Add in great chips, proper mushy peas and delicious gravy and you are guaranteed a great meal. Friendly helpful staff are the icing on the cake.

I would regard myself as a fish and chip expert having been in and around the trade for 30 years. I eat here with my Dad every Wednesday who himself has been in the trade for well over 40 years. I simply do not understand the negative reviews I have read on here and assure you that we would not eat here at all unless it was anything other than excellent.
Having had our lunch as usual this week (7/5/2013) we both marked the experience 10/10.
Don't just take my word for it, ignore the haters and give them a try. These are easily the best fish and chips for many miles around. Since I stopped making them anyway ;)

We have been using Great Eccleston Fish Bar since it opened and have enjoyed both the take away and sit down restaurant. Sadly our last few visits have been very disappointing. The food quality has slipped badly with overcooked greasy fish and cold chips. Service has been poor also. Sadly will have to look elsewhere for fish & chips.

Really good fish and chips. I had a monster piece of cod with lovely mush's! Wine was good also.
Had a lovely Saturday lunch here with friends. It was very busy.
