Due to road works I ended up going through Loughborough town centre on the A6 looking for a chip shop. On the outskirts going north I finally spotted, on the left side, the bright lights of the 300 Spartans fish & chip shop. I pulled off the main road and parked up. There is actually customer parking to the rear, but I did not spot that until I saw a sign advising of that in their window. A couple of locals in the shop already. The owner told me I would have to wait a few minutes for chips, but that was no problem as I had already spotted the gigantic fish pieces. I paid £9.90 for two really, really big bits of fish, and one portion of chips. A bag was provided. I could see everything was hot, so I drove about 300 yards up the A6 to a layby, and tucked in. The fish was top quality, and cooked with the skin on. The batter was crisp and crunchy. The chips were spot on. As said before, it was all served up really hot. I prefer to eat fish and chips with my fingures, but this was that hot, i should have taken a plastic folk when in the shop. We ate all of the fish, and most of the chips. Both left some batter. Basically, both too full to finish it off. The best fish and chips from a takeaway shop I have had in years. Made even better, as I had not intended to go through Loughborough at all - BUT GLAD I DID!!
