We don't sell fast food, we serve good food as fast as we can
The Island Fish Bar is a family run business since 1994.
Frying in 100% vegetable oil.
The entire fish bar menu from our fish & chips to our chicken nuggets is cooked in pure vegetable oil, which is filtered daily and completely changed weekly.
Best quality potatoes and fresh North Sea cod from Grimsby.
We are constantly praised for the quality of our chips. This is because we only buy the best quality potatoes and use quality vegetable oil. The cod we fry is always fresh from Grimsby, and so extremely good value for money. We've used the same family run supplier for 12 years.
Chicken Tikka & Lamb Shish cooked in 100% pure sunflower oil.
The Chicken Tikka and Lamb Shish we serve is meat cut from breast or prime lamb only and is served as chunks of meat, not slices. Both meats are lightly marinated and only cooked to order (we never pre-cook and store these meats) using 100% pure sunflower oil, one of the healthiest oils there is.
Nan breads baked to order in a Tandoori clay oven.
One of the favourite items on the menu are our nan breads, which are baked out at the front of the shop. The dough is kneaded daily and on rare occations sells out towards the end of the night. The bread is lightly brushed with the best quality extra-virgin olive oil.
Fresh base Pizzas.
The dough for our pizzas is kneaded daily and also occasionally sells out towards the end of the night. The flour we use is premium quality (when we could opt for cheaper brands) and like our Nan breads we only use organic milk (a fact that was previously unknown).
Freshness and quality.
We've gradually found the best ingredients, the best suppliers and the best ways of serving everything on the menu. Our coleslaw is home made using the same premium quality mayonnaise that we use on Burgers and kebabs (and even on chips!). You'll be surprised how much you enjoy basic things such as our garlic mayonnaise and yoghurt mint sauce.
You'll notice that we pre-cook very little food. Unlike most shops we don't cook and store food for long periods in heated cabinets. This is because experience shows that it's better to have a continual rotation of food (which requires more work).
The only down side is that we are not always fast. To cook to order takes time so don't be disappointed if you have to wait. You can help us by ringing through your order before you arrive.
A complete refit has allowed us to create a safer and more hygienic shop. With the help of the local Trading Standards Agency we've fitted kitchen materials and machinery that can be kept cleaner. The shop is left spotlessly clean after each opening period. We use sound practices of food storage and preparation, such as keeping temperature logs of stored and cooked food.
