Established in 1968, Toff's is an award winning fish and chip shop owned by George and Costas Giorgious which prides itself on serving fresh food at reasonable prices in a family friendly atmosphere – somewhere you are greeted as a customer but you leave as a friend.

As well as the more recognised range of fish cod, haddock, plaice, rock and skate, at Toff's they extend their choice to whole fish like whole plaice, lemon sole, dover sole, sea bass and trout.

Historically, the marriage of Fish & Chips dates back to 1860 in Northern England near one of the many fish docks. The original recipe was to fry the pair in beef dripping, but it was in London's east end that they started frying in oil. Traditionally, fish and chips were flavoured with salt and vinegar and consumed with your fingers straight out of the newspaper in which they were wrapped. Cod and chips is the Londoners favourite, but that's not true for the whole country. Ask for Fish & Chips in Grimsby, and they will serve you Haddock, however in Wales you will most probably receive Plaice. Fish & Chips became essential to the diet of ordinary men and women and are now as fashionable as ever.
