Mum slams chip shop for serving ‘pathetic portion that tastes like raw potato’

A hungry mum has vowed to never step foot in her local fish and chip shop again after being served a 'pathetic portion' of chips.

The enraged woman – who does not want to be named – was left flabbergasted when she unwrapped the paper packaging to reveal the chips that "wouldn’t even feed a four-year-old child".

To add insult to injury she claims they were not cooked to her liking and her daughter "could still taste the potato in the chips."

She had ordered the chips along with another small portion, costing £1.40 each, two children's meals of chips and fried chicken, £2.50 each, and a cod bite for £2, bringing the total to £9.80.

But despite visiting the takeaway up to twice a day – and at least three to four times a week – she is now cutting all ties with The Brockworth Fryer in Gloucestershire because of the incident, which has left a bitter taste in her mouth.

She told Gloucestershire Live: "We asked for a small portion of chips and they gave us one scoop.

"He said ‘What do you expect for £1.40?’

"You can see the state of the chips and the chip carton. We had one tiny scoop. It wouldn’t even feed a four-year-old child, that’s how many chips there was.

"My daughter could still taste the potato in the chips. It tasted like potato still. It wasn’t cooked properly."

She claims a drink and lollipop, which comes with the kids' meals, were also missing from the order.

However, the manager has fired back and insists what he serves is good value and that he has "a good name for myself".

He said his portion sizes were appropriate and added: "That's my portion sizes, you don't complain when you go to McDonalds, do you for their portion of chips?"

Commenting on the portion size of the children's meal, he said: "The only thing I could say with the kids meals, they delivered me the wrong boxes.

"Normally with kids meals, they’re quite big. I did say to the lady, I’m sorry they sent us the wrong boxes. So she said ‘okay that’s not a problem’ That was it really."

He added: "Where else can you eat for £2.50?"

He also denied he would serve undercooked chips and said: "Sorry, I don’t believe that. I’ve got a good name for myself. Chips wise, they’re quite good. We’re getting busier and busier."

The mother went on to say that they were regular customers and that the chip shop manager should be more appreciative of their custom.

In the past, the family has been known to go multiple times in a day.
