Early each morning, when our fresh fish is delivered to the restaurant, we know it’s going to be a great day. We know the fish was swimming in the sea just a few hours before. We know it’s going to perfectly complement our superb chips. And we know you’re going to love them both.


Blackstocks exists because you deserve fresher, tastier and healthier fish and chips. We’ve travelled the length and breadth of the country tasting some of the best – and the worst – fish and chips available.


So by the time our fish and chips reaches your tastebuds, it combines the best of our experiences to create succulent fresh fish that’s been gently steamed by its crispy batter, rustling next to our crunchy champion chips.


We think - and so do our customers - that Blackstocks serves the best fish and chips in Chester.


That’s because our fish is never frozen; our frying oil is never too old; our chips are never soggy; and our secret-recipe batter is so crispy you can hear it.


You can eat in our restaurant, or take your food away in a special box that allows the steam to escape to keep your fish and chips crispier for longer – so no more congealed oily take-away fish and chips tumbling onto your plate out of the paper.


Come and find us in Chester city centre and we’ll give you what you deserve – quality fish and chips.

You deserve better fish and chips

Crispy, not soggy

Fresh, not frozen

Something to bear in mind so you can rest easy:

Our fish is always sourced sustainably from certified suppliers. Where we can, which is the vast majority of the time, we make sure our fish is line-caught so that they come to us undamaged for your enjoyment.

We’re happy to take bookings for large groups.

So if you’re due to be in Chester soon with a tour group or school party, we can cater for up to 70 people.
