I think if you lurk around outside Port Jack's Chippy on a Saturday night, Paul, you'll spot him. Everybody calls in there sometime on a Saturday night. And I got the initials the wrong way round, which may have confused things a bit - they should be S.M.B.H.


Port Jack's Chippy was the first place I tasted chips with gravy on - a huge step forward for a young lad from Backward Norfolk back in the '70s. Another time, several of us were there for sustenance after an evening in the old Lido, with its sticky, wooden floor, and a young lad with us had got no cash left to buy his chips. He was doing so much whinging that no one would give him a quid to appease his hunger. In the end he found a broom and swept up the chip shop floor and wiped the tables down for some free sausage and chips. Happy days!

The Manx signature dish is "chips, cheese and gravy" although personally I prefer 'queenies' (queen scallops) and agree Owen chips cooked in beef dripping as a side and 'mushy peas'  would be my food heaven .
Ray , the Port Jack chippy has changed hands a few times and the quality has varied , if you go to Peel then at the mo you won't be disappointed at the "Cod and Castle" on the prom or the two other places in the same ownership( one on the quayside) with your fish supper (cooked to order).
Anyone joining Griff  and perhaps  'Moth' ( you know it makes sense  Moth   ;D  the bike is waiting  ;D)  on a visit to this island for MGP this year ?

You need to visit the Black Country museum. They have a chip shop that cooks with beef fat.

Will be over again this year with the missus. We will miss the mgp though as we are cruising when it’s on. Might catch up with some of the guys down south though. Southhampton way?
