We have just had a steak pie and a meat and potato pie from Noel Chadwick's in Standish, and they were superb! If you are passing through Standish, call in at their shop. The quality of the food and pleasantness of the staff is excellent.

Yes, I remember all the letters in the Observer about parking on his property, but this thread is just about the food, especially the pies. We didn't park there actually; we parked by the church. My son had recommended the sausage rolls, which is all we went in for, but ended up buying pies, sausage and bacon. Whatever fault lies with Mr. Chadwick, the food and the staff were excellent.

John had every right to do what he did with his car park, folks were parking up there and going around Standish and not buying in his shop, whereas customers wanting to shop at his butchers couldn't park anywhere. So what would you do theborg,roylondon and 1934granada let folks park up willy nilly while your business goes down the pan because your customers can't park up to shop there.

Posted by: rodders (418) Report abuse
ayrefield, I'm with you on this one. Parking in the area is far from ideal so it's quite fair that he wants his customers to be able to park. Space is at a premium in the centre of Standish, there just isn't room for a Tesco/ASDA style car park.

If remember right one of people in the car used the shop but another person went to another shop and didnt use his shop and that caused the problem.

I'm talking about an incident a couple of years ago. These people WERE customers and spent quite a hefty amount in the shop as they were going camping! I did not witness this but I know the lads involved. One of whom is a member of this site. Maybe if he sees this thread he will give his version of events

I suppose I ought to start this tale with a bit of empathy for the Chadwicks, because I can understand how annoying it would be to supply a car park for your customers which gets (ab)used by drivers who've no intention of using the shop.
But what about haranguing customers who've just spent 33 quid on ribeye and chops.....?
... A few summers back now, three friends set off on a glorious, blazing June morning for a spot of fishing in the Dales. They'd packed a few stubbies and a bottle of red to wash down a selection of fine cheeses, crackers and dips.They were for the passengers, but the driver had only a bottle of jusoda and little else.
Just passed Boar's Head , he says ''I've got one them throw away barbies in t'boot but we met not catch owt.

I'll stop at Chadwicks and get some meyt. Great idea, beltin. They threw a tenner apiece in; two of them went in the shop and the other said, I 'll just nip up street for some sun cream . We'll be brunt deeyeth if I don't.

There was guy on picket duty refusing the sun cream buyer exit to the street.
'' S'okay pal, we're spending 30 quid in your shop, I'm just off for some sun cream''
YA CAN'T! he said
Why's that? don't they sell it in Standish? he asked, and, just thinking the picket wasn't a full shilling, strolled passed him and out the car park.
Suncream proved indeed hard to buy , so he bought a daily mirror instead and hurried back so as not to hold up the trip. His pals were still in Chadwicks shop, but now the picket had been joined by two others.
WHERE'S THE SUNCREAM THEN?! You've not got any!
Sorry? Oh they didn't have any.
Ya NOT allowed to leave the car park!!
But me friends are still in your shop spending thirty quid.
THATS not the point!!!
The guy got in the car whilst the tree of them continued to shout abuse at him.
''Lets get gooin' quick he said when his friends returned, '' they're bloody crazy'''.

They pulled away,gingerly, but knowing it was now three against three and from inside the motor, he rather cheekily gave the fingers to them out the back window.

They never got a bite in the Dales and Chadwicks steaks were lovely , but three days later , the proprietor WROTE to the driver demanding an apology from the guy without suncream.
Well, I can tell you, that proprieter will be waiting a while yet.

Went in to their shop about 3 yrs back for a look, didn't buy anything, the prices were, well err, Pricey

It seems as if the Family Chadwick have something against The Last Orders pub, they covered the pub sign up with their own blank board!
Cover up

Always call that pub the White Duck, I know it had changed names but I thought it was something other than the Last Orders, Bear comes to mind?

Pisolivadi. Thats a classic that one You could not make that up! Were they on Candid Camera? Or, you've been framed

Posted by: i-spy (13228)  Report abuse
they'll probably be charging their customers to park there soon.

"but three days later , the proprietor WROTE to the driver demanding an apology from the guy without suncream."

It's something that's bugging me, nothing to do with Chadwicks or the carpark to be honest.......but how did they know or find the address of the driver or the passenger??? I wouldn't like to think my address was that easily accessible to be honest.

Posted by: pisolivadi (1811)  Report abuse
lisalee,
The driver may have been a regular customer; but I couldn't swear to it.

Posted by: lisalee (11932)   Report abuse
Maybe so but you'd still have to ask as to how they knew where to contact them.

Posted by: nicko (inactive) Report abuse
this has been going on for years, i used to drive the car park on and do a couple of laps and watch the attendants get mobilized then drive off , very funny
