Except food and service. A lot of chippies are poor these days but not here. Good special offers particularly during the day...only down side is limited opening hours so I advise checking first

This is my second visit to the Codfather. The gluten free fish is amazing! Crunchy perfection! What a treat for me to be able to experience this classic English dish. They sell the batter as well so that you can make it at home!

Very helpful and accommodating, Our grandchildren are presently staying with us and one is a coeliac. The food was excellent. The staff were friendly and offered to plate our meals as we decided to sit outside. When in the area we will call again.

We have to travel 8 miles from Knutsford to collect from the Codfather but it is well worth it! The fish is consistently high standard, chips cooked to perfection, side orders all fresh and perfectly portioned. If you ask they'll double wrap for the longer...More
