The Bearded Sailor are on a voyage to fish the meatiest haddock and peel the fluffiest potatoes. All while maintaining their commitment to keep all of the produce from certified sustainable sources. The chippy has made that much of splash since opening in 2017 that they’ve already reached the dizzy heights of a top 10 finish for the best of the new UK fish and chip shops.
Take a look around
Both the old and new have a home at the Bearded Sailor. The ruggedness of a chip supper isn’t lost on their want to produce high quality food, at a decent price for your pocket. The Haddock is MSC certified which means it’ always farmed and caught from a sustainable source.
You can get your chops round a ‘Skinny Sailor’ (small fish & chips); ‘Little Shoal’ (fish bites); or a ‘Sole Mates’ (2 fish with 1 chips) – all smothered in homemade tartar sauce. And if you feel a little more adventurous you can step forward with the award winning battered halloumi!
Fish aside, they do a high end jumbo sausage or battered chicken. And to top it off you can get a few scoops of homemade ice cream – luxurious!
There are a small selection of soft drinks available.
It’s safe to say the bearded sailor has made a mark in its short existence. It won the Yorkshire Evening Post ‘chippy of the year’ in 2017. And was named in the top ten of the UK’s new fish and chip shops in the 2017 National Fish and Chip Awards – the only business from Yorkshire to make the final cut of 60!
You can see why its achieved these accolades. The chippy takes great care in the small touches. Like the colouring competitions for the kids and loyalty cards for the parents. The inside of the shop has a restaurant corner that invites you to stay and eat. It’s a truly seafaring vibe with ship seating and bearded artwork adorning the walls.
