Chippy Tea

I'm going to this place tomorrow:

It's on the Wirral and is renowned for the best chips on the wrong side of the water. The mate I'm going with offered up four different areas to go for a few hours - all over the region - but knowing Parkgate had this open, I casually said we should wander down and take in the view of the River Dee and beyond as it would be great for us both. We could feel the breeze, chat about all kinds and give our mental health a kick-start.

I couldn't give a fuck about that. I just want boss chips and feel I still need to make it up to you all for that plate of slop I posted last year.

Leave it with me.

You have to wade through a sea of top knotted wankers but I love Parkgate based solely on the chippy and the ice cream. The pub at the far end of the strip (not the big cheap carvery pub)did great food too.

It was decent!

Would have preferred a larger serving and for slightly thicker gravy, but considering we got served ten minutes after it opened I was impressed with the chips not being like a typical early batch. The peas were gorgeous. Sausages were above average. Wouldn’t be my first choice of chippy but I’ve had much, much worse.

What's that green shit?

I'm not a fan either but you can't deny the importance of the mushy pea in the world of the chippy tea.

The sickening reality is the only reason I've become so vocal in this thread is because the below atrocity is the only deep-fried fish I can find within 50km of my house. Unspecified quadrilateral fish piece with aioli and potato salad. Just like Nana Helga used to make. The other alternative was the same piece of fish in a dry baguette. Chippy Tea!

Last night, I put an order in to pickup at the local chippy for 2 cod and chips. 10 minutes later I wandered down to collect it and the ladies behind the counter looked like they had seen a ghost. 

Apparently they gave the cod I ordered to the previous customer who claimed he rang in for it (he didn't) but they couldn't be sure as they knew this old fella suffered from dementia. So I had to wait for some fresh fish to cook.

I did get compensation though, they chucked in two large battered sausage. It is a shame my wife only eats white meat so I was well and truly stuffed last night.

Load of fucking shit. Look at the tiny sample size. They probably talked to a couple of wrong uns in Clwyd hence the salad cream/mayo
