A YOUNG York businessman has launched his first venture within 50 metres of where he was born in Huntington.

After finishing a masters degree and travelling to India, Aman Dhesi has returned to his home city where he has opened Brockfield Fisheries, in Brockfield Park Drive.

The fish and chip shop, which has created eight jobs and is a joint venture between Mr Dhesi and his brother Gavin, was officially opened yesterday by York actor Berwick Kaler.

Mr Dhesi said: “I came back home and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. This came up and it was a great opportunity to set up in business.

“The shop used to be a greetings card shop, and not only is it around 30 metres from where I was born, but it’s on the same street as the Spar shop my dad used to run.”

I have to say how great it is to finally have a good fish and chip shop in this area of York. I have eaten here a few times and the quality is great. Definitely recommended!

I have visited brockfield fisheries a number of times and I have not been disappointed with the quality. I would go as far to say the BEST fish and chips I have ever had. The staff are friendly and the price is very reasonable especially for the quality. Fantastic opening event and it was nice to see a business giving something back to the customers in half prices fish and chips. I am looking forward to my next visit already I highly recommend this chippy.

Something fishy about the comments here. The chippy was opened on Tuesday but already on Wednesday, some have visited a number of times/ eaten here a few times. Cod there be some Plaiced comments with the Sole intention of promotion?

Good luck to you. Huntington was once so quiet that kids could play football on the road in the 1960's. Hard to believe it now.
