Whiteheads fish and chips - we care about our fish

Our Fish

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 and quick frozen at sea to seal-in the fresh taste by ThorFish, the Icelandic fishing company. Whitehead's MSC Certification Chain of Custody Code number is MSC-C-53712-33

Whiteheads fish and chips - we care about our potatoes

Our Potatoes

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. We are delighted to announce the chips we serve are the new season Accord potato crop, all freshly-cooked...delicious. Ask our staff about the potato varieties we use throughout the year.

Whiteheads fish and chips - we care about how we cook your meal

How we Cook

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.

Whiteheads fish and chips - we care about our gluten free options

Gluten Free

For many people, intollerance to certain foods affects their health and wellbeing. In the case of coeliac disease, a gluten free diet is essential.

Our takeaway and restaurant menus include a wide choice of gluten free meals (marked GF). We advise all customers following a gluten-free diet to notify serving staff of their needs. We cook all our gluten-free foods separately, to order, in a dedicated kitchen to ensure there are no traces of gluten; no matter how miniscule.
