Old fashioned Yorkshire fish and chips are the main attraction at this historic Headingley chippie along North Lane. Established in 1919, Bretts Fish Restaurant is award-winning, and knowledgeable advocates of the battered fish and deep-fried chip regularly rank Bretts in the top 10 fish and chip shops in the UK. In any case, what could be better than eating fantastic fish and chips cooked and served in an oak-panelled restaurant or, on nice days, out front of this Victorian stone terrace in the pretty English garden?
As good as ever,food very good wine excelent, See you when the Cricket season starts next year, for the lunch breaks. so book my table
Good service, fish portions a bit on the small side, mushy peas portions too large! Not quite sure how the bill worked out so expensive, (9 x fish & chips, + 2 bottles of wine, 1 bottle of water = £200?), but we enjoyed the experience. A bit on the noisy side at times.
Disappointing meal overall. Standard very low compared with other Fish & Chip restaurants. Starters were served on chipped crockery and the batter on the mains tasted of stale oil. Wouldn't return.
At almost a hundred years old, Bretts Fish Restaurant is still going strong. It must be the solidity of the twinned Victorian stone terraces that house the takeaway and restaurant arms of this most venerable fish and chip shop. Bretts can be found down North Lane in the Leeds outlier of Headingley - you can’t miss the crowds and families tucking into golden, battered fresh fish and perfect chips in the covered seating area out front. So famous and esteemed is Bretts Fish Restaurant, that cricketing media-types and cricket fans book their tables months in advance of Headingley Test Matches. Quandoo can certainly help you there.
Bretts Fish Restaurant typically uses Icelandic haddock, carefully battering and deep-frying each fillet to perfection. Matched with chips cut from Lincolnshire Maris Piper potatoes – a great all-rounder but just perfect for chips – you’ll be hit for six by this most simple and British of dishes, the humble fish and chips. Bretts Fish Restaurant is no joke – its North Lane, Headingley premises is literally on the UK fish and chip trail, tempting not just chippie pilgrims from nearby Leeds but from all over the UK.
