This impressive fish and chip shop is situated in Pontefract's bustling town centre.

This is a busy retail area as well as a thriving evening destination and contributes to reasons as to why the current owners chose this area to establish a fish and chip shop.

Gillygate Fisheries can trace its' history to before the Great War and has consistently been a dramatic success. The area is key to its' success as not only is this a generally busy area, but there is also a distinct lack of competition in the generic fish and chip sector.

Over and above the quality of the food and the exceptional location, the presentation of the shop itself is also a draw for customers, with the investment in fixtures and fittings as obvious as it is substantial. This is aided by most of the equipment being replaced on an ongoing basis. Experienced operators will recognise the extent of the investment.

As well as a traditional fish and chip shop, the business also has a thriving reputation as a kebab house, this being an appeal in the later evenings.

After significant investment in the business, the current owners, who have been here for 20 years plus, are ready to retire. Gillygate Fisheries is Family run and manged with the help of 2 part time staff. Along with other family commitments, the decision to sell has been somewhat forced upon them. New owners will therefore have a tremendous opportunity to acquire a superb business where all the hard work and expense has already been made. The spoils will be left to whoever buys the business next.
