About us

JM's opened for business on July 4th 2002. Our aim was simple; to give the people of Retford and the surrounding areas the best possible fish and chips that we could achieve. We believe to do this we needed to incorporate the great taste of traditional fish and chips, with everything today's society demands. Those aims still stand today. We are always looking at new innovations in the industry. We regularly go up and down the country to trade food exhibitions to take on board what is happening and if there are any benefits that we can incorporate into JM's.

There has been a Fish & Chip Shop on this site since 1911 (and possibly before that! ) and it has served the Retford people Fish & Chips through both World Wars. We are proud to be custodians of such an historic tradition. Rest assured everything about JM's is state of the art! We have a hygiene rating of 5 and pride ourselves on the number of awards achieved over the years.

 We are a traditional Fish & Chip Shop in the historic market town of Retford. Our aim is simple.....to give Quality Food at Sensible Prices.
 All our fish is sourced from the finest stocks, the most reliable and sustainable fishing grounds.  
 Our potatoes are sourced from one of the UK's oldest & largest potato merchants. The potatoes are grown specifically for the fish and chip trade where careful selection and storage conditions are paramount.
As for the rest of our products, Pukka pies, wholetail Whitby scampi, top quality burgers even our chicken fillet bites (whole chunks of chicken breast), we believe we've found the best products on the market. We will keep our finger on the pulse, always looking for new products, to give you, our customers, the best.
 The dough for our pizza base is made on the premises. We use the finest ingredients for our toppings. There are 3 sizes of pizza on offer, Regular 8", Medium 10" and Large 12". For more details of pizza bases and toppings go to our menu section. One other thing to note about our pizza service is that it is available from Wednesday through to Sunday from 5.00pm. 

All our food is available in our Licensed Restaurant, to pick up at the Takeaway or for Home Delivery straight to you. We offer Gluten-Free Fish & Chips on a Saturday evening. Please ring to order your Gluten free meals as we require prior notice.

The Licensed Restaurant is spread over 3 dining areas and can seat 50 plus customers. We have menus for Children, Senior Citizens and our amazing Evening Special Menu where the second meal is 1/2 price every night of the week. If you wish to reserve a table or a dining area for a special occasion we will be happy to accommodate your needs whenever possible. A good example of this are theatre goers who can reserve a table at a set time and be in their seats for the start of the performance. Please give us a call and book your table!
