This evening, we decided on that rarest of things for us, a chippy tea. It’s about 3 years since we last went, and we wanted to see if it had improved any since.
First of all, they’re still serving dick (sic) in ginger and pineapple. Makes us laugh anyway.
We were pleasantly surprised to see a 5 star food hygiene rating, secondly, the little old lady who has been there forever was still serving.
That’s where the good parts end.
We placed our order and paid our money, she then went to serve the people who were before us their food.
It was like watching Julie Walters in a cross between Mrs Overall and Two Soups?
She then proceeded to take our order again, before serving someone who had just walked in. Bit odd, but hey, she then took our order again, and then again wandered off to serve this time TWO more people who had just walked in, before taking our order yet again.
By this time, 20 minutes had passed and we’d had enough, demanded our money back and walked out.
If you want to sample their unique brand of customer service and (going by the last time we visited) mediocre food, visit them at
797 Rochdale Road,

Following our visit, we looked them up on the Food Standards Agency website and discovered this:
So in case the service isn’t enough to put you off the food hygiene should be.
