You worry a lot for someone who doesn't live in Chorlton

Not a lot I can say to that banal comment, so I won't.

Got a free Christmas tree with a thirty pound 'bab from Adams on Saturday. Not tried the kebab yet, but the tree looks good. I did not know you should fill the plastic bases with water to help stave off needle drop.
Stupidly I didn't take up the free delivery offer. Imagine if I lived in the Tristan da Cunha; £3.00 for delivery over three miles. Don't mind if I do.
Fair enough to them though, they run a good business, as far as I can see.

Having done the rounds, I have to agree, the Baths Supper Bar is excellent. Went for a swim earlier with the kids, then went over the road and ordered Pie, Chips, Gravy, Vimto x 5. Swift service, all was really fresh, portion size was fine, and all agreed it hit the spot.

In no particular order, but the worst have been Atlantic (under cooked chips and Pukka Pies), Adams Chippy (not a clue), Bella House (the women who ran it appear to have moved on, now gone to pot).Royal Cod ok, apart from being asked to buy a large portion of chips every time (upselling a la McDs and KFC).

i agree atlantic have gone downhill... went about a week ago, as normal there was a big queue, and as normal they ran out of chips just before me... so i got the first lot of the next batch of freshly cooked chips, which was fair enough, except they were crap. greasy, overcooked, orange, just horrible. shall probably be another 6 months before i return.

Andy, I agree that Atlantic is a bit scummy but, as you say, it's always got people queing in it, hasn't it?

the quality of chippies in manchester in general is crap, even frankie's on burton road which was always brilliant has gone downhill since changing hands.

On the way back from the vets in Didsbury I stopped at a new chippy opposite the Red Lion near The Christie, it is the best one I've been to in years. On the first try they put the food into polystyrene boxes which made the batter a bit soggy, but even so it was by far the nicest I've had in Manchester. Now when I go I ask them just to wrap it in paper and it remains crispy. Good sized fish, well cooked chips and light anf fluffy batter. We've been for or five times now and haven't be disappointed yet.

The best chippy in Manchester is next to the Garrick's Head pub off Moorside Road in Urmston. Stumbled across it by accident a couple of years ago. Beautiful. They've won a few awards for their chips as well, so not just the ramlings of a madman.
