Great fish and chips and a warm welcome

‘I opened Godfrey’s in 2012, with my mum and dad, who have worked in the fish and chip industry for over 30 years.

We take pride in serving simple but delicious fish and chips and being at the heart of the local community.

We look forward to welcoming you.’

Luke Godfrey, Owner and Manager of Godfrey’s


Food cooked fresh to order

We cook all our food fresh to order – so hot and crisp fish and chips straight from the fryer. We peel and chip our potatoes each morning which are then double cooked to give a perfect chip – fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside.

All our fish comes from sustainable sources. Our cod, haddock and rock is MSC certified which means we’re helping to guarantee we can all enjoy fish and chips for years to come.

And it’s not just our fish and chips that are prepared with love – our pies are homemade, our sausages free-range and our homemade tartare sauce is the best you’ll ever taste!

Sustainability is really important to us

  • Our fish is fully sustainable. We were the first takeaway and restaurant in Hertfordshire to have full Marine Stewardship council certification.
  • All of our packaging is completely compostable
  • We use 100% green electricity generated through solar, wind and tidal power.
  • Our restaurant toilets are flushed using rainwater.
  • We recycle all paper, card, glass, tins and plastic.
  • All our food waste goes to an anaerobic digester – producing compost and power.

Giving Something Back


We’re so thankful for the support we receive from the local community, it’s great to be able to give something back by supporting local charities, organisations and schools.

We’re proud to be a Platinum Partner with the Hospice of St Francis which provides care for people living with life-limiting illnesses in our local area.

We’re the main sponsor for the Harpenden Film Society, what better way to spend the evening than watching a great film after some Godfrey’s fish and chips!

We’ve given talks in several local schools on topics including sustainability and opening a business. If you’d like us to come to your school please get in touch!

We’ve also taken ‘Godfrey’s on Sea’ to local events including the Harpenden Carnival and St Albans’ Food and Drink Festival. Look out for our pop up beach this summer!
