Coronavirus: Thank you for the amazing support we have received from our customers during the last few months. Our office and factory are based in a rural area which has made it practical for us to remain open for business.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, coasters and placemats are still not available but we hope to offer these again soon.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

Anyone Remember Halifax Fish - a Memory of Halifax.

My Dad was born and lived in Halifax. When he was young a family firm which had a stall in the market hall delivered a fish speciality on bicycles with baskets. We all called it "Halifax Fish" and it was a piece of haddock in a round patty covered in batter. They were sold cold and could be eaten cold or re-heated and eaten hot. As a child I went to the market hall with my Dad to buy Halifax Fish usually 6 or 10 pieces. They were about the size of a man's palm. We adored the stuff and I would often have a half piece for breakfast before catching the bus to school. Brand's A1 sauce being the essential accompaniment. Does anyone remember this Halifax delicacy? I think the recipe and supply of this wonderful food died with the last family member to make and sell it. If anyone recalls, please add a comment. If anyone has the recipe......!

I wonder if you mean what we call a ' sandwich ' ? Fish between 2 slices of potato then battered and fried. I love cod fish. I live in the south now and they would consider it very strange!

My mouth is watering already! It was a ritual in our our house to have these every Friday tea time. In the 1950's my grandmother lived with my parents and I, and my younger sister. She always called them "grilled fish" If you try to describe them to people nowadays they say
" cold fish, how awful" In reality they were delicious and I used to look forward to Fridays. Will someone please invent a time machine!!
