So a Polar bear walks into the chippie and says, ‘I’ll have a coke and …........ a fish supper’.
‘What’s with the big pause?’ asks the server.
‘Dunno,’ replies the bear, ‘I’ve always had them.’
OK, that gag was old when the Queen Mum was a nipper but today’s Big Deal on fish and chips at The Arches Cafe Bar & Restaurant is so fresh that it would wolf whistle a police officer.
The Big Deal is for two people to each enjoy fish and chips plus a glass of house wine in the rather cool cafe bar at The Arches.
Fresh fish is delivered daily to the kitchens where the chefs cook it in crisp beer batter and serve it with delicious triple cooked chips, crushed garden peas and a zingy tartare sauce.
Fish isn’t delivered to the Arches on Sundays and Mondays and they will only use fish that has been delivered that day.
All of which means that this deal is available Tuesday to Saturday from 3pm to 9pm.
Perfect for a night out; a bite to eat after work or as a pre-theatre meal before catching a performance at The Arches, this Big Deal looks like being a show stopper.
