More healthy options

As a great alternative to our traditional battered fish, we also offer poached fish. Without any batter it is ideal for anyone with a wheat allergy. It is the same price as our fried battered haddock and is prepared to order in just a few minutes.

Teacakes are available in brown (wholemeal) as well as the usual white. We can also supply them ‘dry’ without butter on request.

In addition to mushy peas we also sell Heinz Baked Beans. Did you know that baked beans count towards one of your five a day? They’re a great source of fibre too!

We’ve also added fresh apple juice to our great range of drinks. Apple juice cartons can also be included in our Kid’s box meal (adding an additional 88 calories).

Fish is good for you!

The government recommends we eat at least two portions of seafood a week. Seafood is a ‘health-food’ in more ways than one; first and foremost, it's jam-packed with nutrients, vitamins and minerals that help to keep our bodies in shape. Seafood is well-known as an excellent source of Omega-3, a very important fatty acid that our bodies can't produce on their own.

For more information about the health benefits visit the Seafish website. You can also download a Seafish information booklet (PDF).

LoSalt – a great alternative

We now offer LoSalt. It’s a great alternative to normal salt, with all the flavour, but with 66% less sodium. A high salt diet is one of the leading contributors to high blood pressure, strokes and coronary heart disease. It is the sodium content in salt which is the key contributor to these conditions.

Why not give it a try next time you visit?
