Summers been and gone, and there was certainly no summer sun! Nevertheless, we hope everyone enjoyed the summer. What did you lovely lot get up to? We’ve had a quiet but enjoyable summer filled with weddings which meant lots of food and wine and more food and wine =) Like many of our customers, we’ve also enjoyed all the events that went in and around the UK, especially The Olympics. Team GB did PROPER good it must be said!!
As its September, we would like to welcome all the new faces in the Heaton area who are here for their studies. Wishing them, and all others who are back in Uni and school, the best of luck for the new academic year. Just remember, fish is good for the brain and we’ve got plenty of it here! =)
We hope everyone enjoyed and celebrated their long Easter weekend which may (or may not) have involved a bit of cheeky chocolate! We certainly did, along with some Easter cupcakes! Nom nom nom!
This Easter Weekend came around quicker than we had expected and with Good Friday traditionally being the busiest time of year, we were all raring to go! Good Fridays are a true test to the team’s capabilities involving an incredible amount of preparation work, frying expertise and the speed of the counter staff. We really hope we did well!
As with every Good Friday we were open all day from 11.30am – 11pm and queues started as early as 11.20am. Orders for fish and chips were flying in, with freshly cooked fish and chips barely hitting the hot boxes before they were served up. Very quickly we had sold tons and tons of mushy peas and ran out of curry sauce! And our batter, salt and vinegar…. Well, it was all gone before we knew it!
It was a very Good Friday indeed and more so because we got to see all our regular customers’ as well as old and new faces, all in the one day! =)
