This is always the fish and chip shop I use for a chippy tea take away. The staff on the counter are always pleasant and always get your order right, unlike other take aways. I would recommend as the food is always lovely and anything you ask the staff for is never too much trouble! A1 in all the Thornton/Cleveleys... More

I have visited this chippy on numerous occasions since the end of last year and I must say the food is really nice and fresh. The lovely ladies Marie and Claire are always friendly and are a huge credit to the chip shop. Perfect customer service and fantastic food. What more can you want.

We decided that if the weather was decent on Wednesday we would drive over to the Fylde coast and have a Fish & Chip dinner, we have done this on several other occasions but decided this time to try a different outlet, I perused the reviews and found that Thornton Fisheries was worth a try - and was I right!...

Popped in for take away on a busy Friday tea time. Order placed did not have to wait long before the order was ready being served freshly made food piping hot , and of good quantity and quality. Food served in the requested biodegradable cartons. If you want a good 'chippy' then a visit to Thornton Fisheries will serve you... More

We have tried all of the chip shops in the Over Wyre, Poulton, Thornton & Cleveleys area. There is non that come close to the consistent quality of the meal that we get... More

Visited on many occasions when in the area. Whether eat in or takeaway, this is the best fish and chips - ever. Anywhere. Well that's our view, anyway. Plaice is beautifully cooked with amazingly crisp, light batter. Chips are spot-on. It's such a simple dish, but most restaurants get it wrong. Not this place. They've got a winning formula of...

Sometimes nothing else but a chippy dinner will do. Took my father in law here for lunch today & we all orders the fish & chip special, with peas or curry sauce, bread & butter and a drink. Great value at only £8. Our meals arrived promptly with the fish lightly battered as requested. The fish was beautifully cooked with... More
