We are passionate about the quality and taste of the food we serve you, where we source from, how it is cooked and our environmental responsibilities. Here is an insight into our approach to ingredient procurement and food preparation.
Want to know more about your food?
To enable the Whitehead's Team to serve our customers with the best taste in fish and chips, the availability of consistent quality, sustainably-sourced wild seafish is vital. We offer fully traceable sustainable cod and haddock from our supplier XpressFish from Marine Stewardship Council certified fisheries; caught by ThorFish, the Icelandic company whom we visit from time to time. Whitehead's MSC Certification Chain of Custody Code number is MSC-C-53712
Just as with our fish, we take great care over the supply of our potatoes and have developed a close working partnership with a local East Yorkshire potato grower with whom we have worked for a number of years. From field to Whitehead’s Fish and Chips is just a 10 minute drive; probably the lowest food miles travelled by any British chip shop spuds. Ask our staff about the variety of potatoes we use.
Many of our customers dine with us because they want to avoid allergy causing foods, saturated fats or because they are vegetarian. We only cook using 100% non-gm rapeseed oil meaning all our non meat products are vegetarian friendly. Fish is cooked separately from our chips and our batter is milk free in both our gluten free and standard batters. We are confident we are serving foods that all our customers can enjoy, whilst observing their dietary needs.
For many people, intollerance to certain foods affects their health and wellbeing. In the case of coeliac disease, a gluten free diet is essential.
menus include a wide choice of gluten free meals (marked GF).
Customers following a gluten-free diet should make staff aware as we cook GF foods
separately, to ensure there are no traces of gluten; no matter how miniscule.
Fish and Chips are healthy eating as part of a balanced and calorie controlled diet. The Whitehead’s Team want you to enjoy Fish & Chips and get value for money with the portion size to suit your individual appetite. Our takeaway & restaurant serves:
|Fish||4 - 5oz|
|Fish||7 - 8 oz|
|Fish||10 - 12 oz|
*These are approximate cooked weights and, as all orders are hand served, minor variations may occur.
We strive to provide as much information as possible about our food so you can make informed choices. Whitehead’s Fish & Chips can be eaten as a part of a healthy diet but, as with any meal, portion size is key to the total amount of calories per serving. The following - all cooked in non-gm 100% rapeseed oil - is a guide to help you plan your diet.*
Above nutritional guides are for cooked weights in tests carried out by National Federation of Fish Friers - For more information: National Federation of Fish Friers - Fish and Chips Nutritional Information
*Whitehead’s Fish & Chips are freshly cooked in non-gm rapeseed oil from natural ingredients and hand served. Minor variations may occur in calorific and fat content from one serving to the next due to factors such as total fish weight and chip sizes.
