    Perfect heart stopping chips....

    For an healthier approach use red potatoes. Peel and cut in chips or if you prefer, pre wash leave skins on and cut into chips.

    Set your oven accordingly. Par boil in hot water for 5 minutes then drain. Transfer to baking tray and Lightly spray with Low fat oil ( fry light etc) and place in oven for 10 minutes. Take out of oven and turn the chips and lightly spray again and cook for a further 10 minutes. Much more healthier. 👍

    But nowhere near as nice Brin! Had chippy tea earlier for first time in yonks. Got them from Marina on Green Lane, Rawmarsh. Portion sizes were phenomenal and fish were a foot long. Best chippy around these parts by a mile. Put me in a food coma for an hour afterwards.

    I go there myself quite a bit when I'm over visiting my mum who lives round the corner.
    In fact an old neighbour from when I lived on green lane works in there.
    Very good teatime specials too.

    It's a bit weird for me going in there, particularly the takeaway part , as it brings back so many memories of drinking in what was the tap side of the Crown.
    Happy days happy daze as the lads from Moulin Rouge used to say

    Then we're surprised that there's a strain on the NHS

    Or you could do sweet potato wedges instead, delicious and healthier.

    Sweet potatoes have more taste than potatoes though which are bland in comparison.

    Made some horseradish sauce for the beef today. Hard to get in most places.
    Grated with sour cream.. salt .
    Lovely.
    10 of us for dinner. No one's ever had it.
    1 tried it and he's cleared his sinuses.
    Anyone else eat it?

    Think it might be the Marina now, different premises but same ownership I think. Not 100% sure though as I'm not originally from these parts.

    RE. Horse radish sauce, I love the stuff.
    I love owt that's got a kick.

    Correct. The owner bought The Crown and turned it into a Fish & Chip Restaurant and Take-Away. He sold the Dale Road premises. Itís now a Pizza Place.

    Sainsbury’s do it, pricey though at £8 to £9 per kilo

    If you get some take care when grating it, get it on your hands then rub your eye and you will certainly know about it.
