Handy for the hotel opposite, where the guests are only offered breakfast by their hosts to sustain them, there used to be a fish and chip ship selling the usual fish, chips, kebabs, fried chicken and burgers to the right of Al Tyres. Happily for any parents staying there on extremely tight budgets but who are unable to cook for their offspring, they also did, no doubt nutritious, childrens' portions for a quid a go.

I imagine it is a place like the Markhouse Fish Bar & Kebabs that the portly Clyde Loakes was thinking of when he decided to try to ban fast food within 400m of local schools (Kelmscott School is on the other side of the Leisure Centre). The place is now shut, replaced by Sooper Domestic Appliances.
