Nominated by: Russell King

Where: Bolton Road, Irlams o’ th’ Height

Kidd’s was a popular chippy in Irlams o’ th’ Height. Although in the post-war era the chip shop was run by both Henry and Florence Kidd, it was originally the business venture of Mrs Kidd and as early as 1939 she was in charge of the shop at 401 Bolton Road.

Russell remembers:

“Ace! Ace fish and chips, reputed by many to be the best in Manchester from 1950s to 1970s. It was a great place in many lives in Manchester over the period. Stunning fish and chips.”
