When people say ‘fish and chips is fish and chips’ they’re wrong. Lots of places serve our beloved national dish, but that doesn’t mean they get it right.

Its cod or haddock is so long it overhangs the plate, the chips chunky crispy, and the mushy peas are mushy - as they should be - rather than crushed. A classic.
