Skipton fish and chip kings Bizzie Lizzie’s have teamed up with Skipton Boat Trips to offer Evening Fish and Chip Cruises.

  • The evening fish and chip cruises run throughout the year, giving customers the chance to enjoy award-winning fish and chips whilst travelling on the Leeds & Liverpool canal.
  • The cruises last two hours, running between Bizzie Lizzie’s fish and chip restaurant on Swadford Street to Bradley, before returning to dock.
  • Diners receive waiter service on board and have access to a licensed bar.

Two heavyweights in Skipton have teamed up to offer an experience with a difference, as Bizzie Lizzie’s award-winning fish and chips are now available on board an ‘Evening fish and chip cruise’.

The fish and chip restaurant have teamed up with Skipton Boat Trips to offer an experience along the Leeds & Liverpool canal, which travels from Swadford Street and through the Yorkshire Dales to Bradley, before returning to dock.

Diners receive their fish and chip dinner (with a choice of curry sauce and mushy peas!) as well as a full waiter service and access to a licensed bar. Gluten-free options are available and diners also have the choice of sausages instead of fish.

With Bizzie Lizzie's Swadford Street location overlooking the Leeds & Liverpool canal, Skipton Boat Trips co-owner Jennifer Watson recalls how the two businesses met and how the partnership was formed:

"We met at an awards banquet after we were sat next to them at a table. We started chatting away and thought this was such a logical partnership between neighbours. We launched it in the summer as Skipton is fantastic for tourism, but also locals as a lot of local people have joined us on the trips.

"Obviously Bizzie Lizzie's has such a great name in the Skipton area and so people who love their fish and chips then come with us as well!"

The fish and chips went down well on board the boat, particularly with customer Neil who had travelled from Mirfield:

"It's very well organised and the food is delicious. It's just a nice experience from start to finish and I've got to say the service has exceeded expectation.

"I'm very fussy about fish and chips but they were superb, I'm not surprised they've won awards. It's just a shame we live so far away!"

Bizzie Lizzie's have restaurants on both Swadford Street and High Street Car ParkAdult tickets are just £26, with child tickets priced at £22. To book, find the next Evening Fish and Chip Cruise online or call 01756 790829.
