This is a traditional Friday night fish and chip tea at its best. Trouble is , the shop is too popular and quite right. You may have to wait up to 15 mins but the staff work hard to servevas fast as possible.

I live in Winsford. But my daughter lives around the corner for I, and sometimes when I'm visiting her we have tea from there. Well worth the money and the staff are so friendly and helpful x

I was fortunate to win a meal for 2 on face book, scampi and chips, possibly the best scampi I've ever had from a chip shop, staff were busy but still had time for a bit of banter, friendly and very efficient, if you're 1 for a chippy tea of a Friday night after a busy day at work, then... More

I won their Fish Friday for two and it was absolutely delicious. The fish was really moist with really crispy batter. Good job we were hungry as there's plenty of it! It had been recommended before but hadn't been - will definitely go again.

My fish was cooked while I waited , the... More

We regularly visit the Codfather; it is without a doubt one of the best fish and chip shops I've ever visited. We live in Knutsford and drive here because it's so good. The fish is crispy and light, the chips are always crispy and the portions are large. They offer gluten free batter and vinegar etc, which is brilliant. The... More

Won the Facebook competition for fish & Chips twice. They were gorgeous! My other half doesn't normally like 'chippy' chips, but liked these 😊
