Pedant alert but before the geography Police arrive. Aspen is in Colorado unless there is a lesser known version in the state of California. If it is the Colorado version it will be about 1000 miles from the pacific (the nearest "sea"

Tilly,
Well we went to Leeds again and decided to give The Skyliner another try. Big mistake - they were just like last time, both fish and chips were overcooked, we should have known as Friday night they are usually queuing out the door. They were awful. Luckily The Brown Cow at Whitkirk was serving meals and there was a good choice of fare.
Visiting the family as per usual and we're now back in Gloucester.
regards Jack

Cerainly won't be the Skyliner,would not have them given free...... The Sunday night went into"Brown Cow" which was opposite to where we were staying. The pub was heaving and with the England match plus these rollover fruit machines the pub must have taken a fortune

Some of the nicest fish and chips i've had in Leeds have been from Rockfords in Killingbeck. They even deliver if youre close enough (and delivered in the 90s which was mind blowing to me, first chippy I ever seen deliver!)

Some of the better ones in the city centre have shut, and the only one I really liked in Horsforth has shut (though nkt because the chap killed his wife, as I thought in the gruesome discoveries thread!)

Graveleys is usually a decent shout down Beeston but just dont go on a game day!!
