It may be more traditional to have fish and chips on a Friday, but Tuesday was the evening for a trip to Turners Fish and Chips, in Bilsborrow, to sample their wares for the first time.

Situated on Garstang Road, not far from the picturesque Lancaster Canal, Turners had a convenient car park where there was ample parking.

There was no queue when we went in, and we received quick, pleasant, and efficient service.

My friend opted for her usual, fish and chips, which came to £5.60. And as I browsed the menu behind the counter, which had a large choice of fish, chips, pies, sausages and so on, I went for cheesy chips – cheese being one of my favourite foods – and a fish cake, for under £5.

There was a fridge hosting a wide choice of soft drinks, and tea and coffee were available to take away, but we decided we would have a cup of tea at my house instead.

While there was a takeaway counter to the right, from which we ordered our takeaways, on the left was the restaurant.

The amount of food was spot on, so we felt full enough, but not too much.

The chips had just the right amount of cheese so you could taste both them and the creamy melted cheese topping. My fish cake, which had a breadcrumb topping, had plenty of filling.

Caroline’s fish batter was tasty and crispy, with, again, plenty of fish, and she said her meal was ‘really great, a taste sensation’.

According to its website, Turners aims for locally sourced and sustainable food.

I will go back next time I’m in the mood for fish and chips, maybe venturing into the restaurant.

Turning into the car park of Turners in Bilsborrow was a good choice.
