Garstang Residents Welcome New Fish & Chip Restaurant & Takeaway
Posted on 23rd August 2013
Robert Pinkus & Co. can report that a new, eagerly awaited fish and chip restaurant and takeaway opened on Tuesday to rave reviews in Garstang town centre.
Garstang Fish & Chips, a traditional fish and chip restaurant and takeaway opened to the public on Tuesday 16th August by father and son John and Jonathan Leech. The property has been taken from private landlords at Unit 2 Stoops Weind with Robert Pinkus & Co. acting on behalf of the landlord. The 1,216 sq ft restaurant will seat 40 covers and will open Monday to Saturday 11:30am to 9:00pm.
This will be the family’s first North West fish and chip restaurant and takeaway with Jonathan at the helm. Jonathan who married local girl Hannah last summer now lives in Garstang with his wife. John Leech originally from Fulwood and an ex-Fulwood High School student has run his own fish and chip shop in Cornwall for over 25 years along with a coffee shop and an ice cream parlour.
The new tenants are excited about their new venture. Jonathan said, “The Weind is a very busy thoroughfare and we saw a nice opportunity to turn something bad into something good, a new asset for the town.
“We are delighted to be opening in such a bustling and vibrant market town. The property is an ideal location for us and the fit out has been a labour of love for the past few months. We hope the local residents like what we have done with the restaurant and we are looking forward to serving our fish and chip suppers to the people of Garstang.”
The restaurant will serve a traditional fish and chip menu including desserts and cakes from Lathams, ice cream from Bonds of Elswick and freshly ground espresso coffee.
