Good chips and hits are just around the corner. Tucked behind Fish Lane on South Brisbane’s Hope Street, Ol’ School will open doors on quality fish ‘n’ chips with a nod to the good ol’ ways.
Hello Please owners Maris Cook and Dan Ward are joined by design studio Standing By – and Chef, Jesse Stevens, whose skills from his training at three-hatted Pier in Rose Bay won’t go unnoticed.
“We’re just some guys that want to cook you some really good fish and chips, served up with nice drinks,” says Chef Stevens with a grin.
There’s no waiting around with your numbered ticket – the casual fifty-seater will be all table service. You’ll pull up a seat, inside or out, and the team will hook you up with the freshest, skillfully-prepped seafood – from on-the-menu favourites to weekly specials. Your fish arrives cooked one of two ways, followed by pro-level chips, cooked to perfection and served by the scoop atop greaseproof paper, so everyone can dive in. With all the essentials—salt, malt vinegar, citrus and a selection of house sauces—you choose your own adventure.
But wait, there’s more. Sides will include salads, made for the perfect seafood match (no Greek salads need apply), potato scallops with the right amount of crunch, and fresh bread for the perfect chip butty, obviously. Add to this a most refreshing selection of nice house drinks, wine, beer and a few summery cocktails and you’re set.
Grab your meals in-house or takeaway for dinners Tuesday through Thursday, with classic fish ‘n’ chips served up with prawn cocktail rolls, fisherman’s baskets, and fish tacos. The kitchen will roll out takeaway meals Friday through Sunday.
From the meals themselves to how they’re served, everything’s done with an emphasis on service and consistency – and a hint of nostalgia for good measure. Have a play with their DOS-styled website and get ready to meet your new home-town fish n’ chips, this November.
