So while Grimsby is not the most exhilarating or exciting places to visit, a part of my job is to follow my club around the Country and this weekend it was Grimsby.
The O’s won 2-1 but my major highlight of the day was getting fish and chips from Steeles Restaurant in Cleethorpes, a 25-minute walk from the stadium or a six minute drive.
The restaurant itself allows you to step back into a time where fish restaurants were the range and they were on every street corner in every small town in the UK.
Not to mention, there is a queue outside if you have not already booked! Luckily I had, but it just shows how much people love their fish and chips from where Young’s is based.
The Pier itself is actually quite therapeutic once you pass the arcades that you see on any beach front.
It has a lovely restaurant where you can get smoked mackerel and mussels for £16 along with a pint! Not bad for lovely fresh sea food.
While at Steele’s, you also get bread and butter, and a pot of tea included with your fish and chips meal and the marvelous stack of mushy peas you get with them!
It was all for £9.95, not to mention the delightful banana split for £3!, and certainly left me waddling back to the car for my Journey back to London.
I would highly recommend for a day trip with the family, as it has something for all.
Until next time Grimsby!
