W J RoweFinest Fish & Chips

Award Winning Fish & Chips

As an award winning fish and chip shop William and the team pride themselves on serving the highest quality fish and chips with many of their customers travelling from outside of Stevenage to enjoy their food.

Who are we?

The owner of W J Rowe took over the shop in 1992 after the passing of his late father who had been serving the communities of Stevenage since 1962.

All cod is MSC certified 

This means we ensure that we only use fish from sustainable sources. The blue MSC label is only applied to wild fish or seafood from fisheries that have been certified to the MSC Fisheries Standard, a set of requirements for sustainable fishing. Fish and seafood with the blue label comes from a fishery that has been independently assessed on its impacts to wild fish populations and the ecosystems they're part of. All along the supply chain, MSC certified products are separated from non-certified. MSC certified seafood is accurately labelled, ensuring that seafood with the blue tick comes from fisheries that are MSC certified as fishing sustainably.
