I wouldn't mind casting a clout to a few folks on here, LOL. 

No I didn't damn it. We'll be in there before the week's out though.

Brought large fish from the supermarket or me tea got it home & all the insides where missing ...... Gutted!

The first Fish and Chip shop I knew (the one at the left end of the block). Orford Avenue, Clifton.

Foreign food hadn't been invented then, so they only sold fish, chips, peas, fish cakes, and pies. Everything was served in real newspaper which you could read whilst eating.

The shop was split into two halves which you can see on the photo. The left side with the clear window was the take-away section; the right side with net curtains was the eating-in section, which was exotic and special with formica tables and tubular steel chairs.

And as a kid, you went with your own money and asked for "6 chips"; which wasn't referring to how many you got, but the cost - 6d.

I remember the first chippy I went to, old 4d for chips !

There were nigh on riots when the price of chips increased from that to 6d. a 50% rise, scandalous !

Frequented the Andover Rd one tonight. Beautiful and it's only over the road. I'll definitely use it again.

Plenty of chips, just sufficient batter. Spot on.
