Related tags: Fish and chips

The owners of Michelin-starred pub the Pony & Trap in Chew Magna, Somerset have opened the first part of their new fish café and tearoom concept in the Chew Valley, Somerset.

A fish & chip take-away is now open at Josh and Holly Eggletons new project at Chew Valley lake in Chew Stoke.

The pair’s new Salt & Malt tearoom and fish café will open at the same site in February. The Eggletons took on the 25-year lease of the Chew Valley Lake Tea shop with Bristol Water last year and have been running it as a tea room until closing it for refurbishment this week.

Dishes on the Salt & Malt take-away’s opening menu include fish suppers of fried cod, haddock or plaice served with chips, peas, tartare sauce and lemon (£5.95); house fish cake (£2.75) and whole tail scampi (£4.50). Sausages include the Bristol Banger (£1.80) and the Battered Bristol Banger. Sides feature chips (£1.80); crushed garden peas (£1); tartare sauce (50p) and chip shop curry sauce (£1).  A range of pies will also be introduced.

Josh Eggleton has previously worked in a fish and chip shop.

The new site will also feature an ice cream parlour. The new 76-cover tearoom and fish café, which also has 150 covers outside, will also feature a grill kitchen.

Head chef at the new site will be Alex Egginton, who is a former head chef at the Eggleton’s Pony & Trap. Alex de Salengre, assistant manager at the Pony & Trap, whose CV also includes Bristol’s Bird in Hand will be the site’s new manager.

Josh Eggleton aims to open a further five fish and chip shops and a bistro in Bath.
