Perched in the waters edge of this unspoilt fishing village, the emphasis is on local fish, gunard, megrim, crab and lobster.

This is the place to collect your fish and chips to take anywhere in this gorgeous town and enjoy.

Middle Street Fish Bar – Deal, Kent

There are a number of chippies in this wonderful Kentish town but this is the one to head for. Fluffy on the inside crispy on the outside why not enjoy you’re gastronomic delight on the steep shingle beach looking out at the treacherous Goodwin Sands.

Crown & Anchor – Holy Island, Northumberland

Good fish and chips prepared to a secret batter recipe.

Trenchers – Whitby, Yorkshire

Trenchers, a bustling busy establishment on the quay, much loved by local people. Delicious fresh fish, with gluten free batter if you ask.

Aldeburgh Fish & Chip Shop – Aldeburgh, Suffolk

Scampi is the big hit here, although everything is pretty good as the patient queue will testify.

Whitstable Oyster Company – Whitstable, Kent

More of an expensive treat and the cod in beer batter with mushy peas is fabulous.

Top Gun – Whitchurch, Cardiff

You wont be eating here for the views, but locals in the know go across the city to get their fish suppers. They also do a chip butty with gravy!

Hix Oyster & Fish Bar – Lyme Regis, Dorset

Its worth splashing out on the posh cod fish fingers, chips and mushy peas - £17.00 for a two course set lunch – what’s not to like!

Enochs – Llandudno, North Wales

A caring chippie with a big conscious, they are acutely aware of fishing quotas and have introduced mackerel to the menu. The batter is deliciously crispy and the local sausages just brilliant.
