Guest Review here at Scampi and Chips!

by David on May 3, 2010

Now here’s a first for Scampi and Chips – A guest review of Scampi and Chips on, so everyone say hello to the first Scampi and Chips guest reviewer, Daniel – “Hi Danny!”

I ‘m lucky to work with Danny and I’ve got to say that wow, he really is a great guy.  Every morning when my alarm goes off I jump out of bed so I can be ready as soon as possible and at work to spend as much time in his presence as possible.  He really is that nice.

The only possible downside is that Daniel is somewhat overly fond of salad and at a recent visit to the local Pizzahut for the “Eat as much as you like” lunchtime buffet, he did make the schoolboy error of filling up on salad rather than just pizza, so points have got to be deducted.

Anyway, on with Danni’s review…Although at this time I’d just like to state that the opinions expressed by Danni are not necessarily shared by Scampi and Chips…

I’d always been scared to descend on a pub in a hick town in some corner of Yorkshire. I think Elland qualifies as one of those ‘hick towns’, it has its fair share of Cletuses (or is the plural Cleti?).
Anyway, I’ve been meaning to do this review for weeks ever since I arrived in Elland from the bright lights of Leeds. Scampi is very different in The Big City – they’re tiny little baby shrimp that barely fill a quarter of a plate – you usually only get 5 or 6 – and I’m not sure its seafood – maybe just a seafood-flavoured substitute.

Daniel's Scampi and Chips

Daniel was suprised by the sheer volume of Scampi

Imagine my surprise when I was presented with a plate (amazingly in the shape of a dish) that was filled with 13 individual scampi! 13! I even stopped to ask the barmaid whether I had accidently ordered 2 portions… The chips were also made of potato rather than fried oil – excellent!

I didn’t think they had food in part of Yorkshire, let alone scampi – I’ll definitely be coming back if they’re always this good!
