And also it is made specially for you, and you have to wait about 15 minutes for it to be made, where as an ordinary fish supper could be lying on the heater ,ready made about an hour ago

I remember well the menu of a Fish and chip restaurant somewhere in the region of Largs or a similar salubrious township on the west coast. It was a very long and well presented restaurant menu filling the front window. I was so taken by it I still have a laugh at it to day.

1. High tea.
2. High tea with chips.
3. High tea with fish.
4. High tea with fish and chips.
5. Tea with fish and chips.
6. Fish and chip supper.
7. High tea with fish chips tea bread and butter.

It went on like that for several more entries. I can only think that the difference between them was the possibility that high tea was served with knives and forks.

This is just getting silly. What's new ? A special supper is with breadcrumbs instead of batter. End of story !

Hi Betsy, just reading that price list , I'm thinking maybe it is a bit
pricey smile.gif but I wouldn't buy fish done in bread crumbs , I can get that
anytime at home . but I will buy it with batter , and it must be freshly
cooked in hot clean oil and served with fries or rice which I prefer
and also with Cole Slaw . that is my special Fish n Chips .

It's not as bad as it looks if there are two of you. The portions are big enough to buy one fish supper and share it. Two fish and a big pile of chips.

Quite romantic really. When was the last time you bought a bag of chips and shared them with the love of your (teenage) life? When chips were 6d?

I must admit though that I do object to paying over £2.50 for a small bag of chips these days.
