Last orders at Simpson’s fish & chip bar

Simpson's Fish & Chips, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

The Simpson’s fish & chip shop at the Willow Brook Centre in Bradley Stoke is to close tomorrow (Saturday 26th May) after nearly two years of trading.

Simpson’s is a family-run fish & chip business, with one other outlet in Cheltenham. A decision has been made by the family to run a solo operation.

Scott Lahive, Centre Manager for the Willow Brook Centre, said:

“We’re very sorry to see Simpson’s go and wish them continued success at their shop in Cheltenham. We’re in the fortunate position that we do have food operators keen to open at the centre, and should be able to confirm a new tenant very soon.”

Simpson’s opened at the Willow Brook Centre on Sunday 18th July 2010. At the time of the opening, the chain also operated a third shop, in Chepstow, but that business was recently sold, according to an announcement on the company’s Facebook page:

“Due to family members retiring we have regret to announce we sold our Chepstow shop. The new owners have a passion for fish and chips and we are confident they will give their all to the shop as we have.”

Bradley Stoke’s other fish & chip shop, at Ferndene (near Aldi), now trades under the name ‘Bradley Stoke British Takeaway’ after being sold by the previous operator Deep Blue.

Family-run chippy opens in Town Square

Posted on Sunday 18th July 2010 at 1:49 pm by SH (Editor)

Simpson's Fish & Chips, Bradley Stoke, Bristol

Simpson’s Fish & Chips today (Sunday 18th)  became the latest outlet to open at Bradley Stoke’s Willow Brook shopping centre.

The family-owned chippy, which will compete head-on with Subway and KFC, is situated in Town Square unit 9 – next door to Ladbrokes.

The business opened it doors at 11:45 today, which will be the regular opening time on all seven days of the week. The shop will trade until 9:30pm Monday to Saturday and 6:30pm on Sundays.

The Bradley Stoke branch becomes the third in the group’s portfolio, following openings in Chepstow (January 2009) and Cheltenham (November 2009).

Owners Brian and Janette Simpson say they have been in the fish and chip trade for 34 years, perfecting their art in eleven different shops.

Janette told The Journal:

“Our ethos is simple, we want to provide the best fish and chips to our customers while maintaining cleanliness, great customer service and professionalism. We do not serve fast food, we serve great food, fast!”

The company says it has a policy of cooking fish to order, unless it’s very busy, to guarantee freshness. All the food is probed to make sure it’s at the correct temperature before being served.

Asked what the new shop will bring to Bradley Stoke, Mrs Simpson said:

We hope to provide a friendly and reliable local chippy that guarantees great food every time you return. It’s nice seeing our name next to big successful fast food chains and we hope we can keep up!

The company is running a ‘20% off fish and chips’ promotion during its first week of trading. Look out for the special flyers being handed out in the Town Square.
