Harry Ramsden fish and chips

Proud to be Britain’s longest established, iconic, restaurant chain


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.

We have a proud heritage and a history of success that speaks for itself. We are known not only for our world famous fish and chips but as a destination and great place to eat.
