Fish and Chips

Messages  1 - 12 of 12

I can't believe that I can't seem to find a decent fish and chip shop in Plymouth. There is nothing like freshly cooked fish and chips every now and again. I used to frequent the Chip Stop in Waterloo Street but it has recently changed hands and the food isn't a patch on what it was. Please can someone help. Don't mention the one off Mutley Plain or the one in West Hoe as I've tried them both and don't like them. My other half says I'm too fussy!

Hi Kim.......welcome back, been a long time<biggrin>

Reckon you'll have to venture into Wiltshire for decent fish and chips.

Grimsby or Hull.

A bit far from Plymouth though.

I was in Skegness on Saturday. Delicious fish and chips.

A journey into Cornwall would reap a better reward, but I offer a leap into Francines to the board.

I did try Francines a couple of years ago and the fish wasn't very nice. Worth another visit though, thanks.

Hi Rob. Didn't you and Jacqueline get married?

The chip shop at the Black Country Museum in Dudley does the best fish I've ever had; boneless, skinless and fried in beef dripping. Utterly matchless.

The best fish and chips I've ever had are those from Rick Steins chippie at Padstow earlier this year - £5.70 to take away or £7.50 to eat in. We had 2 fillets of hake - only ordered one and it was delicious. Worth every penny!

you can get chips I believe from Plymouth bus station that is if you can cope with the smell of bleach, urine, old booze and the unwashed homeless/junkies/alcoholics that infest the station!

Best chippy, (better than Steins) is Emiles on the Barbican in Looe
