I was in Bolton today visiting a friend who lives on Crompton Way.
Back in the 60's I lived just off Ivy Road and often went to the Chippy on Bennetts Lane . After reading all the good reports on here I decided to call their on the way home today.
My wife collected them and then we went to Moss Bank park car park to eat them.
Probably the worst Fish I have ever tasted. Pale greasy undercooked batter wrapped round fish that tasted like *****. One mouthful and I spat it out. I managed to rescue the chips that were OK, but we both dropped the fish in a litter bin. Horrible!!!
They don't even specify what the fish is on their price list.
It certainly wasn't Haddock or even Cod.
Obviously some cheap stuff that nobody else wants, no wonder their prices are so low.
I don't know how they've stayed in business, let alone win awards.
