Fire at Mr Pink's

Lovers of the Great British classic fish & chips meal will be disappointed when they discover that Mr Pink's in Milford on Sea has had a fire and is going to be closed for the foreseeable few weeks.

As the chip shop team prepared to open for the evening on Wednesday 24th August 2016 the oil in one of the chip pan vats caught fire. Taking place at the height of the holiday season, and with the village hostelries and holiday parks full of families, means lots of disappointed customers and of course a significant loss of trade for our local chippy business.

Fortunately no one was hurt in the incident, although there was substantial internal damage including to the ceiling.

The Fire Service were quickly on the scene with five crews attending from Lymington, New Milton and Brockenhurst. The crews used breathing apparatus to go inside to gain control of the blaze and to minimise damage or spread to neighbouring buildings.

A sign now sits in the shop door window informing customers the chip shop will be 'Closed until further notice.' We hope that they will reopen soon - Milford on Sea without its chippy just doesn't feel right!

  1. Terrible news! Glad no-one was hurt though. Hope it opens again soon. Been eating Pink's fish and chips for 50+ years and am due to be back in the area in three weeks time. Hope it will be open again by then
