STANDARD readers have been reminiscing about some of their favourite Chester chippies from down the years.

A post on social media showing the interior of Steve’s Fast Food, which was located on Frodsham Street in the city centre, prompted dozens of comments discussing the best chips in the city and hazy memories of post-night-out takeaways.

Karren Edwards commented: “That was the best chippy in town.”

Gemma Hale said: “OMG loved their fish and chips.”

Some also said that they knew it as Jack’s Fish and Chip Shop, which was once at the same address.

Several others put forward Hignetts as the best chippy in Chester, including Peter Davies.

Peter said: “Anyone remember Higgnetts in Frodsham Street loved it there in the 70s as a young boy.”

Susan Wallace said: “Hignetts was the best, we had Saturday tea there in the fifties.”

Beverley Allen said: “Did this use to be Hignetts back in the day? Stayed with my Grandparents when I was young and my nan always took me in Hignetts we use to sit down and eat, thought it was wonderful.”

Hignetts later became Chip-O-Dee, which has also now closed, being replaced by L.A Grill.

'Loved it here after Whispers'

For others, the image brought back memories of nights out in the city centre.

Jean Gibson said: “Always went there after a night out, also in daytime great chips, staff were so lovely.”

Ladean Feerick said: “Loved it here after Whispers or was it Stringers?”

Shaun Done said: “Southern fried chicken and chips after Stringers, those were the days.”

Whispers bar, once known as The Big Apple and Stringers, was located above the once popular Witches Kitchen on Frodsham Street in the nineties.

Toni Marie Dale said: “I remember going here [Steve's] after Brannigans one night, he was shutting, and I needed the toilet he said I could go as long as I could get there, he'd already stacked the chairs away. I made it through.”

Brannigans on Foregate Street opened its doors for the first time in October 1995. It closed after 15 years in 2010.
