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?
Excellent customer service and a great place to celebrate graduation. Good menu choice and flexibility. Lovely decor and welcoming atmosphere our waiter was excellent and managed a very busy restaurant single handed
Great service, food, fish and chips delicous. Only a small restaurant so we always book in advance. Take away at the side also. All in all really enjoyed our visit.
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.
