THEY’RE as American as Thanksgiving turkey and cheeseburgers ­— but the Osmonds know where in the world to find the best fish and chips.

The current incarnation of the family’s musical dynasty were in town ahead of the Hearing Fund UK’s third annual gala, to help raise support for those affected by deafness.

But they made a detour ahead of that event to visit the Wetherby Whaler restaurant in Guiseley, an outlet steeped in the tradition of the UK’s favourite fast food.

Merrill Osmond, who started with the group in the 1960s when they were performing to earn the cash to buy hearing aids for family members affected by deafness, said: “The first thing I asked when we got here was where to find the best fish and chips. This was recommended.”

Merrill will perform Osmonds’ classics at the gala at Leeds City Varieties on Sunday.

Correct me please. Is this fish restaurant the old Harry Ramsdens? I believe I ate there last year and the food and service was ok. However a few weeks later I popped into Murgatroyds on the way to the Leeds Bradford airport and I found the fish and chips much better then most places I've been too. It's a regular place now and it's reasonably priced with adequate parking

Have to say that Wetherby Whaler is NOT the best place to go, service very slow I mean come on it is fish and chips, supposed to be fast food, have waited more than 40 minutes before. If you want to dine in for fish & chips then Murgatroyds by far and away the best, for takeaway try the one we discovered at Burley in Wharfedale whilst in that area, fantastic.
