Five Yorkshire Fish & Chip Shops Have Been Named Best In The UK

There is nothing better than a beautifully crisp fish & chip, and we all know that Yorkshire has some of the best in the country. From our seaside towns and fish villages to our market towns and cities, you can’t go far without coming across a chippy serving some of the tastiest grub that’ll make you proud to be from Yorkshire.

Fry Magazine announced the top 50 chippies in the UK for their 2021 awards, and five Yorkshire businesses feature on the list. G’wan! We couldn’t be prouder. The decision is made by mystery diner visits, who mark each chip shop on over 40 aspects of their business from food quality to customer service. The focus is mainly on the food, flakiness of the fish and crispness of the chips are factors, as well as value for money.
