fish and chips in yorkshire

A trip to Yorkshire isn’t complete without sampling a hearty portion of Fish & Chips. Despite Lancashire leading the way for the total number of chip shops, the White Rose County is arguably the top catch when it comes to the quality of its chippies. The 2017 National Fish & Chip Awards (NFCA17) further reinforced this claim with 13 chip shops in Yorkshire making the final shortlist.

If there’s one thing that unites us all, it is the love for a proper chippy tea, so without further ado here are some of best chip shops in Yorkshire that we would like to recommend.

1. The Fishermans Wife

The Fishermans Wife opened their first fish and chip shop in 1960, which was located in Halton. However, just three years later they opened their Whitby restaurant due to the fact all of the fish came from the beautiful seaside town. If you want to enjoy the very best fish and chips in Whitby, with some spectacular sea views then this is the place to go.

2. Millers Fish & Chips

With over 75 years of history, Millers Fish & Chips is an award winning 4th generation family run fish and chip shop. Currently owned and managed by David & Nick Miller, the restaurant recently came 3rd in the 2017 National Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award. Next time you’re in and around York why not treat yourself to some amazing fish and chips at Millers.

3. North Beach Fish and Chips

Bridlington is the ideal location for those who love the British seaside. With glorious clean beaches, Victorian Heritage and a quaint harbour, Bridlington isn’t short of charm. No trip to the seaside is complete without a portion of fish and chips and if you’re lucky enough to be enjoying a day at the beach, we’d recommend you try North Beach Fish and Chips. Recently a finalist in the Best Newcomer Category at the NFCA17 and a receiver of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award, this is the place to go for a bite to eat.
