The Food

Awarded the ‘Fryers Quality Award’ for achieving a level of quality that meets the criteria for a quality example of fish and chips. Once given this has to be maintained year on year. The current owner of the Regent (Adrian) was the first to receive the accolade in West Yorkshire, in the 80s.


It’s crispy batter and flaky white Haddock all the way. And if you’ve never had a ‘Yorkshire fishcake – two slices of potato sandwich in a slice of Haddock, all coated in breadcrumbs – then you have to try one from here.

There’s also a kids meal option with a choice of fish, chicken or sausage.

The Drink

There is a small selection of soft drinks available.

The Place

This beautiful stone building started life as a cobblers way back in 1925 before becoming a place to get your fried fish and potatoes. The clientele back then were the local labourers in the silkworm factories and the coppers from the police station that was opposite.

While you’re in there waiting for your fish and chip supper cop an eye of the information points on the walls telling you where the potatoes were grown and what ship caught your fish – from sea to plate these guys are conscious of everything.
