Seeing as though most of us on here are from up North and we love our grub. Which pie shop and chippy is your favourite?

For pies & pasties, I recommend Dawsons & Whittakers in Tyldesley. Price's in Westhoughton and ye old pie shop (walsh's) in Bolton.

For fish & chips, I recommend Green Lane Chippy in Leigh and also Market Street Chippy in Atherton.

Chippy Kens on Ainsworth Lane used to be world class but sadly he passed away quite a few years ago. Had many a chat with Ken about Leigh RL.
As for pies, Bowens in Adlington take some beating!?!
Paul Moulden ex City and Guinness Book of Records legend has a chippy on Bury Rd which I've been told is quite good.

12 months ago I would've said Coleman's at the top of Chorley Old Rd, but since it got sold and the new owner was fined 30 grand for numerous breaches of various Food Hygiene Regs, I won't be recommending it.

Know it well. Just on the left as you come into Arnside. We tend to go up to Arnside about three or four times a year and always visit the chippy.

I rather liked the fish and chips you used to get in the chippy opposite Burnden Park. 'Rice & Easy' I think it was called. it was a chinese cum chippy. Used to have a good laugh with the two chinese ladies who ran it as well

I've grown up on Bennetts Lane chippy grub, but recently found the fish to be very poor, so I now go to Whiteside's on Halliwell Road normally.

I used to go to Hunters (previously known as Molly Benthams) on Church Road. Nothing special really, not been for a long time.

Who remembers Coleman's on Chorley Old Road? I used to love their sausage rolls, but it recently got fined £30,000 for being mucky.

See 3 comments up regarding Colemans.

I also grew up on Molly Bentham's pies and their tiny little Hovis loaves.

And I always hated Bennett's Lane chippy because it was a bit clicky and the bloke who owned it served all his mates first.

He's called Dave and he fishes with my Dad.

And he's still a cock......

Spent a lot of time up there and Bolton-le-sands, Carnforth, Morcambe (before it became shit) etc when I was a kid when all the family had tourers.

Chippy - Su's Chippy on Belmont Road
Pie shop - Ye Olde on Churchgate

We once stayed at my grans for a while on Arnold Street (between Bennetts Lane and Bernard Grove) and at top of the street was the Bennetts Lane Chippy whilst there was a pie shop next door and a greengrocers next to them - those were the days when it is a community based street!

Nope. Been going there for over 30 years when Su originally owned it before he gave it over to his son and daughter-in-law!!! And now the 3rd generation are slowly taking over.

I went to Sharples school where it seemed everybody lived off Su's chippy. I should give it a whirl one day.

Really?


I don't remember that and I grew up there in the 70's.


There was an off-licence type shop at the top of Hughes Street near Holy Harbour, but I don't remember a pie shop and a greengrocer.


What era are we talking?

There was a greengrocer a block down from Molly Benthams that made way for a Tantastic type shop about 10 years. Was it called Ken Legg's?

It's funny but for our supposed national dish  Rolling Eyes  it really is difficult to find a decent chip 'ole anywhere.

There is one decent one near us and they won the National Fish and Chip award 2011 which is Holts.... http://www.holtsfishandchips.co.uk/index2.php


A lot of it is down to how many use crap potatoes and crap oil.

The best Fish and Chips that I've ever had was in the early 80's on the North Circular Rd in London.

Rock Salmon (Dogfish) it was and it was the size of a Basking Shark but the chips were excellent as well.

I very rarely go to the chip 'ole these days.

I totally agree with what you say.

Haven't you recommended them before?

I feel a sense of dejavu coming on...

Mid-1970's to very early 1980's

You had the chippy on the corner of bennetts lan and Arnold Street and then on Arnold street itself next to the chippy was a bakery and then a short backstreet followed by a greengrocers. Whilst we used to get papers and magazines from the newsagents at the corner of Bennetts Lane and Elgin Street and used the chemist opposite the newsagents then, of course, the co-op was well used and mum used to go to the hairdressers next to the co-op.

Yeah, Ken Legg's.

Used to get our Swede's from there at Halloween before pumpkins were widely available.

And I got my first methadone prescription from Lee's chemist.

Happy days.....

You might have mentioned it in the thread that was about the police control at the Burnley V BBurn game a bit back?

I could be wrong though!  Smile
