Needing something to stave off the hunger pains caused by missing breakfast, a wander through town threw up a board offering fish and chips for £2.95.Advertisement
The lunchtime special belonged the John Kay’s Fish & Chip restaurant. It’s located upstairs above Scrumptious cafe on Market Place, Preston.
We took a table overlooking the flag market and in glorious sunshine it’s a great place to sit. You can see the war memorial, town hall and Harris Museum – all bathed in sunlight and the busy goings on of a Saturday afternoon.
We placed our order for two lots of fish and chips and weren’t disappointed. Chunky chips, sizzling, and a lightly battered piece of cod were consumed mightily quickly.
If you want to add mushy peas, it’s 70p and that’s the same price for a pot of tartare sauce. The portion size has obviously been scaled down a bit for the lunchtime, but it was a great lunchtime bite and on such a glorious day it’s the perfect place to relax with some good food and watch the busy afternoon shoppers fly past.
