Exclusive: Long-running fish and chip shop owner calls it a day

One of Highbridge's longest-running businesses has been put on sale after its owner this week announced he is retiring after a career spanning 46 years.

Dennis Moore, 65, owner of Moore's Fish and Chips, a Highbridge institution, hopes to sell the business.

The shop in Church Street has been running for 83 years and was originally opened by Dennis' grandmother in 1926.

Visited by hundreds of satisfield customers every week, the firm has won several top awards over the years.

But Dennis told this week: "It's time to call it a day."

"I've had a wonderful time running this business but now is the right time to go."

"I was born in this building, so it's been a tough decision," added Dennis, who is renowned for his smart attire and cheery talk when serving customers.

He stressed that the shop will remain open for business until it is sold. The shop is on sale at £350,000 and is already attracting interest from prospective purchasers. More details are available here.
