Fish and chips are the nation’s favourite takeaway, and nowhere does it quite like the Yorkshire folk. Traditional crisp golden batter, perfectly fried chips and a range of sides are what Yorkshire folks’ dreams are made. So, it’s not surprising that the world’s largest fish and chip restaurant is owned by a good ol’ Yorkshire business. Run by Yorkshire legends Papas Fish & Chips, the super successful chain owns a number of restaurants across Yorkshire – and they’re extremely loved by many.
The fish and chip family’s massive 320-seat restaurant that sits in Willerby, East Riding of Yorkshire, was opened back in 2015 and was the biggest restaurant in the world at the time. But Papa’s broke their own record in 2016 when they purchased Cleethorpes Pier for an undisclosed fee. The Papas Cleethorpes restaurant and takeaway is currently the world’s world’s largest fish and chip restaurant – with over 500 seats… That’s a whole lot of space.
Feeding over 500 customers plus doing takeaway fish and chips to such a high standard like this family do day in and day out is no mean feat. The family has years of frying knowledge, so you can expect a tasty chippy tea whenever you visit this top-notch restaurant.
The Yorkshire-owned Papas is a fourth-generation family fish & chips restaurant chain, and they’ve been producing the highest quality traditional fish and chips since Mr Papa founded the business back in 1966, the year that England won the world cup. They have a loyal following and have won numerous awards – including BBC’s Britain’s Best Fish & Chips back in 2017, named by the general public as well as Michelin Star chefs.
Papas are huge on the quality of their product and go to great lengths to make sure that everything they use when cooking is sustainably sourced. As well as caring about their products, this fantastic fish and chips family also care deeply about their community, and support local and national causes through our various community and charitable campaigns.
