“even their Spare Ribs are prepared fresh on the premises”
Oceans Fish and Chip Bar on St Owens Street is fortunate enough to boast prime real estate access across the road from Hereford’s landmark pub and live music venue, The Barrels pub.
If you haven’t been to the Barrel’s, then you have not embraced what it is to be a local. This being the case, then please put this popular watering hole on your road map as the next destination on a night out. Not overshadowed by this longstanding patron of success, Oceans holds its own – and possibly the hands of many Barrel’s patrons on their way home.
The Finest and Freshest Ingredients
A clever business move indeed, but what makes Ocean’s special is the quality of their glorious, gluten free chips and their commitment to using the freshest ingredients, even their Spare Ribs are prepared on the premises and their pies are fresh. They receive 8 stars on the Hereford City Centric 5 star rating scale.
Mal Williams, proprietor of the Oceans Fish and Chip Bar, sources his fish from the Faroe Islands every couple days – meaning the fish is cooked from fresh, and never frozen. The chips are cooked in a separate pan so they never touch the batter, or any other ingredients. You could say they are vegan too.
Friendly service, and well of course the golden battered, gleaming Cod luring you from behind the glass, surpasses the chips shops of this day and age, who regretfully have adopted short cuts in sourcing their ingredients.
Mal also sources his meats from local butchers, staying within our local economy, known for some of the finest butchers in the country.
There is also a loveliness about the place with its clean, welcoming branding, and mural easily spotted when driving past on St. Owens Street, depicting a lush green farm located on a seaside cliff, painted by a local Hereford College of the Arts student, transporting you back to Mal’s childhood memories.
