The Village Chippy


Some two years ago I had an email from someone asking for a photo of Tommy Chow's, the very popular purveyor of fried chicken, fish, pies, chips and peas.

By the time I got round there it had already closed, but not long afterwards the shop re-opened under new owners as the Village Chippy.

I thought it was about time I took another picture. I don't frequent takeawayfood these days so have not personally tried their wares, but those I know who have testify positively.

Now that brings back some memories hanging out outside the local chippy when I was a teenager.

I'll take 2 mini fish, chips, mushy peas and some onion rings.

Fattening I know, but chuffin delicious!

I second that. The one thing I find I miss here in the States is the village chippy. We have our fish and chips of course, but it's not quite the same as the memories I have of stopping in the local fish and chip shop and getting a bag to eat on the way home on a cold night. I enjoy your blog very much, along with the super photos. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

I can honestly say, the chippy icpnic image that it is does not do it for me. The other half though, a Fleetwood boy admits it would be a real wrench not to have a weekly intake.
