The Orkney News is featuring Orkney’s Mobile caterers over the next few weeks. This week it is the turn of The Peedie Chippie.
It operates from the Finstown carpark on Friday evening from 16.00 and from Stromness Pierhead on Saturday from 16.00.
The local standard practice appeared to be to collect from the chippie and take it home. We sat at the tables on the green.
Lesley Drever has been doing this for 25 years. His daughter and granddaughter serve the customers and he does the cooking. So a real family business.
He has patiently built up a cadre of regulars as can be seen from the photos. It was a cool blustery evening but that seemed to have little effect on the queues. We sampled the standard fish and chips, scampi, polony and pattie. All were excellent and of generous portions.
I was glad I ordered a fish and “small” chips!
