Fish and Chips

14 Jul

Bob Carver’s  fish and chip restaurant is, depending on your sensibilities, either an institution worthy of national recognition or a public health hazard to be avoided at all costs. The Carver’s have been in the frying trade for over a century, with a stall on the open market before moving to this establishment. There’s a proper sit-down restaurant upstairs but most customers stand with the pigeons to be served by staff who seemingly have never heard of twentieth century health and safety rules.
Hull has some of the highest levels of obesity in the UK. It would be unfair to put the blame entirely on Carver’s shop.
If you’re really gripped by all this, (and who isn’t ?) you can listen to Bob himself describing his life and times here.
