New Chippy on the block!

There used to be a time when you would have to go to the seaside to enjoy proper fish and chips. Fortunately for us, the times they are a changing!

Bearwood Fish Bar recently re-opened with new owners and they're getting very good (or should we say… very cod! hee! hee!) reviews on their Facebook page so we decided to go fishing and find out more.

New owners Andy and Amanda have rebranded Bearwood Fish Bar with a Traditional theme. The pair have gone back to basics with proper chips cut from locally grown potatoes prepared and cut on the premises and fresh fish, landed at Grimsby and delivered to the shop the same day. They also serve traditional Black Country Faggots, made locally, wrapped in caul and served in homemade onion gravy.

Andy grew up at home in a family owned Fish and Chip shop having learnt his trade from an early age he move on, to run his own Chip Shop in Hinckley. Amanda was part of the management team of an award winning Chippie in Hartlepool before the pair met and moved to Bearwood. They make a formidable pair running a clean and efficient shop producing excellent food at a reasonable price.

Their new shop has a large seating area, where you can take a load off and enjoy your food at a leisurely pace. If you feel like eating in, you could take advantage of their senior special. Available throughout the week between 12:00 and 15:00 this offer includes: Cod and chips, a pot of tea, bread and butter, mushy peas and tartar sauce. For £4.50!! No way! 

If you don’t feel like making the trip to see them then use their delivery service and they will bring your food to you. Call them on: 0121 420 4300 (min order value £10 free delivery within 3 mile radius).

Regular visitors to the shop are rewarded with portions of free fish and chips, though the shops loyalty scheme. After collecting six orders over a value of £5 you qualify for a free regular fish and chips which cost £5.20.  Bargain! Why not drop into the shop to pick up your card.

Bearwood Fish Bar have lots of offers and promotions in the pipeline and next week they're holding their very own Halloween Party.  Tickets cost only £2 each which includes one kid's meal (drink included), facepainting and lots of spooky goings on!  

Andrew is particularly excited about the new batch of Mad Man Hot Sauce he has just made.  He told us that "everyone that's tried it has come back for more.  The sauce is made from the two hottest chillies in the world which are the chilli being the second hottest and the worlds number one hottest chilli the Trinidad scorpion chilli."  Hot Stuff! We dare you to try it!

Thank Fish it's Friday!  Get yourselves along to Bearwood Fish Bar (101 Three Shires Oak Rd) and try the new chippy on the block.
