This month, I want to tell you a bit more about one of my other businesses, Eric’s Fish and Chips. It’s a little embarrassing that they are all named after me, but my ego isn’t that big, honestly; it was a joint decision!
How did it all begin? We opened the chip shop at Drove Orchards in Thornham on April 1st 2015, so we’re coming up to our 7th birthday. We felt the coast was lacking classic fish & chips, we thought there was a gap in the market for a different kind of family friendly casual dining. There are lots of fantastic pubs along the coast, but they’re all quite similar, and the idea appealed of doing something in complete contrast with what I was offering at the hotel – my take on ‘fine dining’.
