@ Manor Fish and Chips, Glossop

This particular chippy has been a long time coming. First of all there was a run-down empty shop, then a Chinese take-away and now, finally a fully functioning chip shop and Chinese take-away – right down the end of my street.
Last night I finally got the chance to give it a test drive.
Fish: Apart from the fact that this was ‘unidentified’ fish (nothing on the menu to differentiate and definitely no choice. I hate that.) it was good. I’m guessing it was hake, certain it wasn’t cod, but nicely cooked whatever the species.
Batter: Not good. Hard to put my finger on it, but if top fish is battered with a chiffon wrap, this one was constrained in a straight-jacket. Definitely not melt-in-the mouth – more like stirred in a concrete mixer and greasy too.
Chips: Bingo! A huge portion of freshly fried chips. Perhaps a little pale in colour but well crispy and hot. Thankfully I wanted them with salt and vinegar because we didn’t get a choice.
Peas: Nothing to write home about – so I won’t.
Verdict: I can safely say they’re the best fish and chips in Glossop. Those readers from Glossop will know that isn’t a great commendation but this newcomer passes muster on most counts.

Manor Fish and Chips is at the junction of Manor Park Road and the A57.

  1. not from glossop but certainly batter should be light and crispy and accompany the white flakes of fish not over power and cover it in concrete.chips should be softon the inside and light and crisp on the outside.mushy peas should complement the fish and chips and leave a real experience worth talking about and sharing with others across the uk.
    shop should offer great sausages,like mcwhinneys range and pies like shire or pukka.3 0r 4 oz fishcakes from king frost or even better a variety of home made ones.scampi and onion rings and opf course gravy,curry sauce and beans.lots of other things are available for the menu but keep it simple but do it well and you’ll always be busy.HAPPY FRYING

  3. This is not the best chippy in Glossop by a long shot. Lee’s chippy on charlestown road opposite the ‘little’ Surry, in my opinion, is the nicest chippy in glossop and has been for twenty years!
