Fish and Chip Friday at Fairfield House

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Our Head Chef Paul Fenner, before joining Fairfield House in 2008 successfully ran his own bistro. Paul’s specialty is seafood, hence fish and chip Friday is not only immensely popular with our residents but also tends to be a busy day for visitors who enjoy Paul’s delicious fish and chips.

Freshly caught fish from Lyme Bay encased in a bubbly but crisp batter served simply with thick cut chips and a slice of lemon is the perfect end to the week.
