Harry Ramsden began serving fish and chips on 20th December 1928 from a small striped wooden hut beside a tram stop in Guiseley, West Yorkshire – and his legacy grew from there. Harry was a stickler for quality and attention to detail, and over 85 years later we are proud to continue his same high standard, serving the world's finest fish and chips.
