This was where I went though my opinion might have been influenced by the scallops as you don't see them quite so often these days. And just about any chips up north are better than those you get down here.
oh I have driven by that place many times....looks run of the mill...but clearly better than that....interesting...thanks

All this talk of eateries in York and Farsley. Now I've just discovered there's a Hedley Verity pub in Leeds, and it's a Wetherspoon's. Why did I not know this? I could spend an afternoon there, next time Keaton Jennings is batting.

You could have a Wetherspoons pub crawl with the Cuthbert Broderick and the Stick or Twist both close by the Hedley Verity.

Just had 4 days in London. Unexpectedly drove through Kingston-upon-Thames and just as I remarked that I thought Sir Leonard had died there - he certainly lived there - we passed the hospital where I think the great batsman died, this having been past the place of his birth in Fulneck many times.

Oh I recall scallops with great affection = two sources;

Newton's Fish and chip shop formerly in Spring Gardens now an apartment block - on the way home from swimming club.
Two slices of potato with a sort of paste of fish flakes between them, battered and deep fried in beef dripping, eaten with 6 pennorth of chiops and scraps whilst walking home up St James' Street.

Those my mother made - based on years of working at Tait's Hygenic Fisheries. Saturday morning, after shopping, playing football in the park and Mum passing chips and scallops over the garden wall. Manna.

Well, we would call those simply fish cakes. Scallops (where I was) had no fish.

nay lad ... in our bit of the country a fish cake was a sort of bread crumbed thing with a mix of mashed potato, some fish and sometimes a little parsley in them. These were not fried but heated in the serving counter (that I used to use to warm my hands after swimming. Known as a fish rissole in other parts.
