Restaurant details
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I have visited this café and the branch in the Manchester Arndale Centre many times in the past and have never had any complaints. It is a traditional chip shop with dining room at the rear, situated in the town centre next to McDonalds and just outside the main indoor shopping centre. It is popular with pensioners and they do a pensioners special on Mondays and Tuesdays.
However that said on my visit yesterday I was most disappointed I ordered Fish chips and mushy peas - Big Mistake, the fish was cooked to order and looked to have been well cooked but tasted disgusting and not like any fish I have tasted before, the chips were again well cooked but were tasteless and the peas didn’t taste like peas.
Someone had dropped food on the floor a girl picked it up and put paper over the mess two other couples were seated at the table with this paper under their feet.
A small child spilt what looked like pink milk on the floor, when his mother asked to use a mop she was told they do not have one and was giver a roll of blue paper to mop it up with. One wonders what they use to do their cleaning?
Sorry Rowntree’s but next time I am in Bury, I will eat next door in McDonalds or Lloyds No1 or Weatherspoon’s, both nearby
