Angel Lane Chippie Turns 90

One of Cumbria's best-known chippies turns 90 this month and to celebrate, it is offering customers half-price meals for an entire day.

Dave and Dan Harding have owned the Angel Lane Chippie, in Angel Lane, Penrith, since December 2007.

The father and son team have won several awards since taking on the business and decided to stage the offer as a special thank you to regulars.

Dan said: "We thought we should mark the event and had best do something with a bit of a kick.

"We are expecting to be very busy and have ordered extra in and will be putting on more staff."

There will also be balloons and bunting and a fish and chip-shaped bithday cake.

The deeds for the property date back to 1817 and the records show that the building was a dwelling house and a bake house with associated premises.

The property has changed hands several times and people from all over the county have had interests in it, including a tinsmith and a fell monger - someone who deals in sheepskins, someone who separates the wool from the pelts.

According to the records the premises became a Fish and Chip Shop in June 1928, and Dave and Dan believe it is Penrith’s longest established Fish and Chip Shop.

The Hardings recently completed an extensive revamp of the interior including an extension to the dining area upstairs and are planning to host a series of pop-up restaurant evenings in the future.

A little bit of history of the building:

The deeds in Dave & Dan’s possession for this property date back to 1817, where the records show that the building was a dwelling house and a bake house with associated premises.

The property has changed hands several times and people from all over the county have had interests in it, including a tins smith a and a fell monger.

A fell monger deals in fells or sheepskins, someone who separates the wool from the pelts.

According to our records the premises became a Fish and Chip Shop in June 1928 thus making it Penrith’s longest established Fish and Chip Shop.

Many owners have come and gone over the years. Dave and Dan Harding took over on

1st December 2007 and have since strived to provide Penrith’s best fish & chips

with a friendly service.
