Ben and Vicky


Fish and chip fans will be delighted by the reopening of Ben’s Lickey Hills Fish Bar, which had been closed since a fire last November.

The family-run business has been a popular fixture in Rednal for almost 10 years, run by Ben Ascott and fiancee Vicky while Ben’s parents Mary and Chris operate the next-door sister business, Ben’s Mediterranean Pizza and Pasta Bar.

The fish bar has undergone a complete refurbishment with a new layout, and the extensive menu – featuring kebabs, pies and burgers as well as traditional fish and chips – is now displayed on special digital screens behind the counter, which can also be used to televise live sports events.

There’s a great selection of fish and seafood, sourced from sustainable stocks where possible and delivered daily to ensure freshness. And the Maris Piper potatoes (“which make the best-tasting chips!” says Ben) come from a local farm which grows them specifically for the business.

As well as tasty fresh food, the fish bar offers excellent customer service – the staff will always cook to order upon request, so your fish will be served to you straight from the fryer. The attention to detail even extends to the installation of separate fryers so that vegetarians and those who do not eat meat for religious reasons can be assured that the oil has not been used to cook any meat products.

The shop and kitchen are immaculate throughout, with the highest standards of hygiene adhered to.

Ben says that the family are always open to suggestions from customers, so if there is anything you’d particularly like to see on the menu, just mention it to the friendly staff!

Both the fish bar and the Mediterranean offer a home delivery service within a five-mile radius, including areas of Bromsgrove.

Ben adds that the shops will be running a series of special events this year, such as competitions to raise money for charity. One will be in style of TV’s Man vs Food, in which a presenter travels the country sampling famous local dishes, and Ben’s will be tempting customers with a 32” pizza and the popular Fat Boy Special, which is a giant doner kebab with chips, salad and sauce.

Don’t forget that Ben’s hog roast takes place weekly – the juicy pork rolls are especially popular with customers. And the business also offers an outside catering service with 10 years’ experience, serving hog roasts, BBQs and buffets for any occasion. Call 07828 994084 for details.
