The birth of a new and different Elite
Adrian Tweedale owner of Elite on the Bail and The Elite Fish and Chip Company, has long wished to bring something new to Lincoln's historic Bailgate area. Drawing on his fish and chip experience and bringing in a talented chef team his vision to combine established fish & Chips with delicious à la carte seafood, became a reality with the opening of the Elite on the Bail in February 2020.
Over the years, we have always been passionate about engaging locally with our communities and raising money for local charities. Some of our more memorable events were in 2013 and 2018 where we raised over £25,000 and £30,000 for our 25th and 30th anniversaries. Needless to say these are staggering sums, of which our thanks go to our staff and generous customers for the fundraising success.
Our History.... Its a Family Affair
Likewise to Elite on the Bails historic setting, our history is deeply rooted in Lincolnshire, now as a 2nd generation family business.
Adrian & David Tweedale

Semi - Retirement
David and Freda started to wind down and hand over the helm, Adrian, young and ambitious, has steered the ship since the original glory days by opening more Elite fish and chip restaurants throughout the county over the last 30 years.
