Linfords: Frying high

The Linford family is celebrating 30 years of frying fabulous fish and chips at their Market Deeping shop

Linfords Traditional Fish & Chips is a family affair benefitting from two generations who have blended traditional ideas with a modern feel. “All of our children have worked in the shop at various points,” explains Paul Linford, who runs the busy takeaway and restaurant with wife Pat. “Steven, Charlotte and Paul helped with the development of the shop over the years and have now gone on to succeed in their own careers. “In fact, over the 30 years since we opened in 1989 we have been helped by so many staff, working full and part-time. They have all contributed to our reputation for exceptional customer service and quality food.”

It’s Pat and Paul’s loyal staff who helped Linfords reach the finals of The National Fish and Chip Awards Fish and Chip Shop of the Year – not once but five times, getting into the last 10 and top three in the Contribution to the Community Award! They have also won top awards in the Stamford Mercury and Evening Telegraph and maintain a five-star food hygiene rating. “We are also holders of the National Federation of Fish Friers Quality Award, the only one in the Deepings,” adds Paul. “All this progress has only been possible with the help and hard work of family and staff. It’s what’s made Linfords the success it is today.” If you’ve never eaten at Linfords, you’re missing out! Fish including cod, haddock, plaice and huss are cooked to your choice: traditional light golden batter, floured or simply steamed. All fish is sustainably sourced.

Other menu items include scampi, fish cakes, chicken and burgers, sausages and spring rolls, plus all your chip shop staples like peas, onion rings, beans… and of course chips! Monday evening service includes a completely gluten-free option, so anyone can tuck into the nation’s favourite meal. The Linfords’ licensed restaurant is immediately next door to the takeaway. Here you can sit down, relax and take advantage of the table service – all in fresh, contemporary surrounds. There’s even an outdoor seating area for when the weather finally warms up. Head over to Linfords to experience the tempting food and friendly service for yourself. You won’t be able to resist the family’s secret batter, promising a traditional flavour that’ll leave you hankering for more!
