A top quality new fish and chip shop is opening soon in Hesketh Bank in Lancashire, with a well-known local fisherman at the helm.
Peet’s Traditional Fish and Chips will open at 19 Station Road, opposite Booths supermarket, in a couple of weeks’ time. The exact opening date will be revealed soon.
It is owned by local businessman Kevin Peet, who has been fishing off the Lancashire coast for over 40 years. He owns the Peets Plaice fishmonger’s in Churchtown Village in Southport.
People will be able to enjoy fish and chips with a twist, with a few welcome surprises including the renowned Peets Plaice Home Made Fish Pie – and Sunday roast dinners!
They will also be able to enjoy healthy options on the menu, including freshly smoked haddock and other fish which Kevin Peet smokes himself.
The venue will initially serve as a takeaway, with work being done to provide space for tables inside as well as creating an attractive new outdoor seating area in time for Spring and Summer.
Sarah Eatough will be the new Manager at the business.
Kevin Peet said: “We are only a couple of weeks away from opening! We are really looking forward to it.
“The previous chippy on the site has been closed for around five months now, we thought it was a great opportunity when we saw it become available. The Hesketh Bank and Tarleton area deserves a great chippy!
“I went to have a look at the business and straight away I realised its huge potential. It is a beautiful building.
“We are currently carrying out a complete refurbishment of the venue.
“I am delighted that Sarah will be our manager. She is born and bred in Hesketh Bank and knows the area well, and is superb at what she does.
“We are looking forward to offering a traditional fish and chip shop with a twist.
“All the fish we sell will be freshly caught and top quality, coming here from Scotland.
“All the potatoes are locally sourced from a farm in Banks.
“Because we have our own smoker, we will be able to offer healthy options including freshly smoked haddock with poached eggs, which is very unusual for a chippy, but something that we think will be very popular.
“We will be doing Bargain Boxes for families, where a family of four can get a box of fish and chips for £25, instead of people paying £32 for four separate portions.
“We are going to be offering a couple of specials every day.
“People will also be able to enjoy our special fish pies, which are freshly made with top quality ingredients.”
There will be another twist – roast dinners!
Kevin Peet said: “Peet’s Traditional Fish and Chips will be open Tuesday to Saturday serving fish and chips, and then every Sunday we will be creating home-cooked roast dinners.
“People will be able to choose from a range of options. They will be able to phone up and order and then pick up their roast dinners to take home. It will be like a click and collect service.
“The chippy to start with will be a takeaway but our plans for Spring next year are to have tables and chairs inside, and a lovely outside area.”
There has been huge interest in the area to the plans.
Kevin Peet said: “We have had lots of people coming in and asking us what we are planning and when we are opening!
“We can’t wait to open our doors soon and bring top quality fish and chips and Sunday roast dinners to Hesketh Bank.
“People will travel to get good quality fish and chips, so we are also looking forward to welcoming customers from places such as Burscough, Banks and Southport too.
“We are really excited to get going!”
