The New Lodge Fisheries in Halifax
Good Evening All.
Just a small bit of information for all family's within the Halifax area, something to consider when getting fish and chips.
We had a meal this evening at lodge fisheries on the moor. The fish and chips was an average meal. However we went as a family and my young daughter of 7 needed desperately to use the toilet after her meal.
Having just spent £18 on the meal for the family that we ate outside on the bench, my daughter needed to go to the toilet. The public convenience was closed outside before 6pm and as such we went inside.
We went into ask the lady behind the counter if she could use the toilet. We were told a straight NO. We then asked to speak to the manager and she then also said NO. To put his into perspective 2 people working at this fish and chip shop denied a small child from using the toilet, with no discretion at all. They told us that they were the rules.
How a local business can deny a small child to use the toilet is beyond me, to actually say directly NO, when she is waiting in the shop with me desperate to go to the toilet is disgusting and I am fairly certainly not allowed.
The fish and chip shop does have a cafe with a toilet that is open to people who use the restaurant and they are allowed to use the toilet. However we chose to eat outside on the grass with it being such a nice evening.
The fact that no discretion was used is beyond belief.
So next time you consider going onto the moor and have fish&chips outside in the sun please be aware than you are not allowed to re-enter to use the toilet.
