Nutrition and Health

Our fish and chips are 100% natural with no artificial colouring and no preservatives added. They contain less fat and fewer calories than most other takeaway foods, plus they are a valuable source of high-quality protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, iron, calcium and dietary fibre.

Portioning fishWe offer a choice of portion sizes, including smaller portions on our Lighter Options and Kids' Bite Menu. You can also request your haddock to be poached instead of fried in batter. This is a great option if you are limiting your calorie intake and 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.
