    Surely just spend a couple of quid and buy some chips the next time you are passing?

    Depends where you're travelling from, if you live in Haxby it's great. It's a decent chippy and I'm 8 miles away and still don't choose it over the one more local to me. Fish & Chips are pretty much the same almost everywhere I've tried in North Yorkshire, whether they're from The Magpie in Whitby or your nearest Fisherman's Wife.

    If you choose to travel to a destination for fish & chips it's got to be on the coast for me.

    Yep - I wouldn't go any distance for fish & chip (although as I am in Whitby at the moment, I do have quite a bit of choice...)

    Millers York Chip Shop

    A good topic for a thread, fish and chip recommendations. A great British tradition in decline. I ate medium cod, chips and mushy peas from the South Street Fish Bar in Lewes yesterday. Good portions. The cod was moist and nicely cooked, lightish, crisp batter; old style chips, fried to a nice nice darkish colour. Mushy peas, delish doused with malt vinegar. Recommended.

    Watch of the day: Omega Seamaster, automatic, stainless, pre-Bond.

    Why do so many chip shops no longer sell their fish with the skin on?
    Had a large haddock with skin on - no chips today with mushy peas and vinegar, splendid so much flavour in the fish skin.

    Wetherby Whaler in Guiesely is our local and never fails to impress. Plus chandeliers and live piano music. What more is needed!

    The only way to serve it. Food doesn't get much better than that.

    It's a chippy. Spend a tenner and try it.

    Having said that I try to avoid places that put chips etc in little mesh cages, and sprinkle bits of extra greenery over the food!

    I have noticed that fish and chip shops often have names similar to watch models. There is a
    seamaster near me.

    I've found that fish & chips; as a cuisine, is a divisive and subjective beast. In my experience to recommend a chippy is to take your life into your hands and will almost certainly divide opinion.

    That said, give me a large cod and chips with a saveloy chaser with lashings of salt & vinegar (always with the vinegar first!) any day of the week. If I'm really pushing the boat out bread & butter and bonus points for scraps

    When we go to the coast for fish and chips, usually Whitby, it has to be with white bread and butter, mushy peas and a pot of tea.

    Anyone else get a can of dandelion and burdock if getting a takeaway?

    Last fish & chips I had was in Longsands in Tynemouth (with scraps and a pickled egg). Bloody lovely.

    Now we're upping the ante...

    I love a pickled egg but you can't beat a good "wally" - my Dad's name for a gherkin when we used to stop at Regans (sic) on the way home from swimming on a Friday night, my eyes still stinging from the chlorine of the pool being hit by the acidity of the vinegar in the atmosphere and burning my mouth on the piping hot chips presented to me on a wooden fork whilst stood in the queue, as was the custom...



    Regans may be recognisable to those of you who who have been to Twickenham Stadium, fond memories. Still run by the same couple but sadly last time I visited it didn't live up to my memories

    I'm very familiar with Regans. Next time you're there I suggest that you order a Nigel Burger .

    Despite knowing that I'll be driving past tomorrow (my parents live virtually opposite) it could be a while, and especially with the diet - indulge me?

    It's basically a burger with everything in it and named after an erstwhile local (who is now resident in Spain). I've had it a couple of times.
