A haven for fish and chip lovers, The Lighthouse is a contemporary eatery with a diner feel that specialises in this British classic, along with a fantastic selection of craft beers. Live sports are shown on the TVs, and there are pool tables and arcade machines as well.

The fish and chips on the Lighthouse menu attracts people from miles around. All the fish is from certified sustainable sources, delivered fresh daily, and is never frozen. There is classic or 'beer of the week' batter, and other classics options like breaded scampi. Golden, fluffy chips are made with the finest British potatoes, and are offered with additions like curry sauce, gravy, and mushy peas. Celebrated Pieminister pies are also served, and there are weekly special deals for senior citizens.

A huge and regularly updated selection of craft beers from around Britain and beyond are served at The Lighthouse Northampton, ranging from wheat beers to dark stouts. For a sweet end to the meal, there are classic ice creams.

Flying the flag for fish and chips in Britain, The Lighthouse is a great blend of tradition and contemporary style. Northampton Rail Station is 7 minutes' drive away.

    We go regularly about once a month as a family and was rather shocked about the changes in the menu. I understand commodities go up, I'm an ex chippy of 25 years but the changes are not very flexible. I don't mind paying for quality but I think you perhaps need to control your chip portion sizes as to include it in everything is very unfair. I have 3 kids under 9 and my wife is not a great chip eater. We used to order 2 haddocks, 2 kids meal a cod, scampi and just a plate of chips as we all like to share. Yesterday we got an extra 3 portions of chips because of the straight jacket system you imposed on your menu change.

    I'm a director of a food rescue charity and it was appalling to witness the waste of food that was forced upon us. I'm sure being in catering, one of the biggest cost is food waste, so by readjusting your portion sizes you will be reducing your waste and unnecessarily penalising customers.

    I have to say it will probably make us visit less frequently due to the severe price hike and excessive chip wastage. I've been in catering for over 30 years and have owned many successful catering operations of which 4 are fish and chips, one being award winning, so I know what I'm talking about and I think you're going down the wrong avenue. Just my thoughts but an professional one at that
