BARGATES Fish and Chip are celebrating Halloween and the reopening of the Christchurch road by offering fish and chips for £5.50 this weekend.

Owners of the restaurant will be running their limited time offer from Friday October to Sunday November 1.

Owner of Bargates Fish & Chips Alexander Oniel said: “With the Bargates reopening life will return to Normality of a sorts

“I took the chance to open Bargates Fish and Chips during lockdown knowing it would be a difficult beginning, especially when the shop had been closed for a good two years.

“With my skillset and love of Christchurch I took the plunge, we spent two months sorting the shop out putting every penny into its rebirth.”

Having opened the shop on Friday July 17 employing six people, the restaurant had a successful first National Fish n Chip Day at Bargates before roadworks on the road forced the restaurant to reduce its opening hours.

Alexander added: “This has been a hard start and serious knock for every business in the Bargates.

“We are just glad its over and we can start again.

“If you haven't tried us before, please let us show you just how good fish n chips can be when a chef is at the helm.”
