This used to be the best chippy on the Fylde Coast but I was mortified at the poor quality and the size of the portions that I received recently. The only impressive thing about this place was the courteous staff. Time for a re-think to get back to former glory.

Hi we are still using all the same suppliers that we have always used and ingredients. I wondered if you could possibly phone me at the shop to discuss your concerns further. Ask for Paul 01253 858668 More

Poor. Which was a shame. Chips overcooked. Pie soggy (microwaved ?) And fish was swimming in oil. Staff were nice and friendly.

I have visited this chippy on numerous occasions since the end of last year and I must say the food is really nice and fresh. The lovely ladies Marie and Claire are always friendly and are a huge credit to the chip shop. Perfect customer service and fantastic food. What more can you want.

We decided that if the weather was decent on Wednesday we would drive over to the Fylde coast and have a Fish & Chip dinner, we have done this on several other occasions but decided this time to try a different outlet, I perused the reviews and found that Thornton Fisheries was worth a try - and was I right!...
