Och I just love Armstrongs! IT announces itself to you with it's tagline, HOME OF THE JUMBO COD...i always imagine someone shouting it..anyway,...it's a fish and chip shop that actually looks all shiny and clean inside, and it serves amazing fish and chips, and you can pick your fish size too!!! the curry sauce and mushy peas are amazing! they do actual chip shop curries! which go down a storm, and if you don't get there quick they will sell out from under your snafftastically tempted snout.
It's amazing!!! The taste is amazing! I've been working late elsewere lately and the go to food was fish and chips, and bleugh it just doesn't compare..where was the rest of my fish...it had nothing on good ole Armstrongs AND it was more or less the same price...
Cod, Plaice, Haddock or Scampi...yum!
Hungry? Jumbo cod it up for £5.25, it's over two feet long! feed your family!
The only time i ever hated Armstrongs was after the Oasis gig, whereby several thousand hungry giggers were forced to walk up yonder road and good ole Armstrongs was shut. Darn it. Armstrongs is so popular there are always queues, and it can pick and choose it's opening hours, but it's worth it! All other fish and chip shops will pale in comparison...even Mr Ramsden!
Armstrongs really is the go-to chip shop in the area. The queues here on a wintry Friday night can get really long when all you want to do is run in, grab some fish and chips and run back out.
My family had a take out night probably every other Friday (both my parents worked, you can't blame them) and mostly we'd stay within walking distance to our house but a fair few times we'd drive up to Armstrongs.
It has all the usual- fish (home of the jumbo cod and all that...), sausage, pies, chips, baked beans, peas and cans of soft drink. The chips are amazing, exactly the right size, cut and frying. None of this Mcdonalds fries type nonsense that some shops are trying to get away with.
Greasy goodness that you just can't ween yourself off.
