From Humble Beginnings
The best fish and chip restaurant in Bolton was born out of a vision by Steve to transform the reservoir in Boltons go to restaurant for fish and chips. The restaurant enjoys a unique setting on the reservoir which offers customers a relaxed environment to enjoy one of boltons best fish and chips.
The restaurant stand on what was originally an old mill complex in the 1760’s which was used to supply water for the steam engines which drove the line shafts for the bleachers. Once the bleachers were finished mill became a nuts and bolts factory until the 1980’s. After the factory closed the area was taken over by Redrow who spent a decade converting the area into one of the most beautiful housing estates in Greater Manchester.
When Steve first saw the current site in 2002, he had no hesitation in purchasing it, “It took me all of 2 minutes to decide to purchase the land. It was a life changing decision which I have never regretted”, said Steve. And after that 2 minute period the start of Boltons best fish and chips restaurant was born!
With the help of Helen, Steve’s loving and supportive wife, the dream soon started to become a reality. Steve managed the running of the restaurant, while Helen ran the kitchen. Within a few years the place became a roaring success.
To grow the business further, Steve applied for planning permission to improve the current site to its current formation. The much improved Curleys offered a new and improved menu which took Horwich by storm. In 2009 work started on the new extension for the dining room and fishing tackle shop.
In 2017 Curleys was able to obtain permission for extending its opening hours. As of June, 2017 Curleys now offers a brand new dining experience for customer in the evening. The menu includes its award winning fish and chips as well as their amazing seafood platter. There is also a wide selection for those who are looking for something different to try!
