The votes are in and they have all been counted and I think it's fair to say we have an overall winner, by a landslide actually, yes it's Sykes Chip Shop, Swinton.
We called at the shop today for a chat with owner Gail who along with hubby Anthony run the shop and present them with our salford.media Gold Star Award for the....
"Best Chip Shop in Salford"
I asked Gail to tell us about the shop and the secret of their success.
"We have been trading here for the past 35 years and have built up our customer fan base, by providing quality, fresh food at affordable prices, with a varied menu for all tastes and pockets,
"All of our fish, cod. hake, is sourced from sustainable fishing waters and they are a big hit with our customers, we do have a varied menu so not just a chip shop we cater for all tastes.
"Our customers are marvellous and some even travel quite a way to to eat here, and I would like to thank each and everyone of them who voted for us, also the staff to whom I would like to say a massive thank you for all their hard work"
I was really impressed with the shop and the adjoining cafe which was filling up as we were there, it really was spotless, and yes in the course of my duty I felt obliged to try the fish and chips which came in a fancy Sykes branded takeaway carton, no less.
Without bias I can honestly say they were magnificent and I can see why the shop was a runaway winner in our competition and I congratulate you, Gail and Anthony, excellent, food, excellent service, excellent prices what more can you ask for?
Give it a visit you will not be disappointed I can guarantee, 10/10 from me.
You can find them at 596 Bolton Rd, Pendlebury, Manchester M27 4ET - and after our visit today we can see why they won.
