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.

We offer a choice or portion sizes, including smaller portions on our Lighter Options Menu

Fish is an excellent source of Omega-3, a very important fatty acid that our bodies can’t produce on their own. It also contains vitamins B6 and B12 and is high in low-fat protein. The government recommends we eat at least two portions of seafood a week.

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

Potatoes are high in fibre and are a good source of vitamin C. They are also a good source of potassium which helps the nervous system function. Mushy peas are a good source of fibre and contain less than 1% fat – they also count as one of your 5-a-day!

To help our customers make an informed choice all the meals we sell have been professionally analysed for nutritional content. You can view the calorie content for all our meals on our menu page and the full nutritional data for all our meals below.

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 have a wide range of sugar free and low sugar drinks. The drinks included in our children’s meals menu are apple or orange juice cartons, bottled water or sugar free still or fizzy drinks.

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.
