The LBO are excited to announce that a “family friendly” Leighton business has been nominated in the Bedfordshire Food and Drink Awards 2017.

Cod and Waffle, Theedway, is up for the Best Newcomer award after the restaurant opened in autumn, the long-term goal of husband and wife team, Lee and Jenny Jaggar.

They said: “One of our fantastic customers has nominated us for best newcomer and we are thrilled. To win the award would be a great achievement for our young business.

“Since opening only five months ago we have begun to build a loyal customer base and we would like to thank those who have voted for us so far. For those who have not yet visited the restaurant we would love you to come along and try our menu!”

As their name suggests, the restaurant serves waffles, fish and chips, with their latest exciting dish being Greek lamb waffle.

Customers can choose either sweet or savory waffles, and the children’s menu has been a big hit with families.

Jenny said: “We wanted to create a restaurant which is different and were guided by Lee’s love of cooking fish and chips and our desire to create somewhere fun and child-friendly.

“Our waffle and fish batters are made fresh each day using our own recipe, depicted on our restaurant wallpaper.

“We live in Linslade and used to run the catering franchise at Leighton Buzzard Golf Club.”

The couple serve an extensive breakfast menu from 9am until 12pm everyday, and fresh hand-battered or hand-breaded fish is served from 12pm everyday. They also make gluten-free waffles and battered fish to order on request.

Highchairs, baby change and outside seating are available.
