Fiddlers Elbow Fish & Chips

Fiddlers Elbow first opened as a fish and chip shop in Leintwardine in 1971, before our family took over the business in 2013. Since then, we have renovated the shop with a major refurbishment in 2017, investing in all new prep room equipment and expanding our menu offering to become a multi award-winning business.

Story

History of the Fiddlers Elbow

Our building was first converted into a chip shop in 1971 and originally named Fiddlers Elbow Fish Bar. After an extensive refit in 2017, we renamed the business as Fiddlers Elbow Fish and Chips to give it a new lease of life. The name ‘Fiddlers Elbow’ is taken from a bend in the road on the way to Ludlow, which can be identified on maps dating back to 1899.

Made from Plants not Plastic


We care about our environment and have made a conscious decision to remove single-use plastic from our shop. Instead, all our packaging and cutlery is made from compostable, plant-based materials.
