You drove to Devon when in fact the winner for best fish n chips is in Kernow land or to city people cornwall . If anyone comes to cornwall for a stay head to falmouth and yoyr looking for the harbourside restaurant and takeaway. It's won numerous awards and it's the creme da la creme shame on you!!!! .. devon I mean devon shame on you insulted to us Cornish folk.

SORTEDfood WAIT!! HOW CAN THE BEST FISH AND CHIPS BE DOWN SOUTH ? IT HAS TO BE UP NORTH!!

Well, it depends. If you're dining out in a restaurant, it's cleaner and easier to use the cutlery. You can't guarantee you'll have access to a bathroom to wash your hands before and after eating.

No. Yorkshire is the home of the UK's best fish and Chips, notably Olivers in Redcar, which are unreal, and spot on every time and for second best, try some from Whitby.

Grosvenor's Fish Bar in Norwich, they have a wine cellar connected to the old tunnel system which they use for seating, not to mention the fella who owns the place frequently comes out and talks to customers

Cod's a dirty bottom feeder that's ALWAYS full of worms. You know those little coloured cord-like bits you see? Yeah, they're worms. Eat pollack or haddock.

As an American it's funny to see how short the drive is. It takes me 1,020 miles across 6 states to go visit family (of course I don't usually drive but I have many times)

Three fish and chip shops that I really rate are "the Lyn bay" Ilfracombe, "Squires" Braunton, and "Jimmy's fish bar" Christmas steps Bristol. The latter does amazing Scrumps (Bristolian term the crispy little bits of batter that fall off the fish)

I have to say, having driven at least 7 road trips that were over 800 miles each way (usually in a day each way), and been a passenger for at least 8-10 that were 2500 mi each way, it was very entertaining to me hearing you hype it up as a road trip/big journey to go a couple hundred. It was very cute and made me check my biases a bit since not everyone lives in a huge nation.

Things about this video that wouldn't work here in the US: No place would get away with charging for a plastic knife and fork, also, I'm jealous, it's illegal for a passenger in a car to drink a beer in most US states (which is silly...)

We moved to Dundee 3 years ago and based on many recommendations have tried many different fish & chip shops. All terrible - or at best mediocre, until the Tailend opened. It's an amazing restaurant, producing gorgeous stuff, and most importantly - fried in dripping, which is the only way to do it properly. My memory from childhood is that Yorkshire always did the best fish & chips - at least partly due to the fact that they used dripping. Sadly, it's a dying trend. Oil will go so far, but it won't produce the real deal. Dripping FTW.

Fish and chips have changed a lot over the years . Batter is nowhere like it used to be . Different texture and taste . Maybe in the past a yeast batter was used , don't know but it is just not the same . Chips seem to be stodgy and tasteless . The quality of potato used is no where as good and the way they are fried seems to of changed .

I love how 240 miles is so ridiculously long for some in the UK haha. I understand it’s a different situation, but I’m used to going 270 miles to drive to Uni here in the states, and that’s no big deal

Cod? Haddock is where it is at - cod is a bottom feeder and typically carries a large number of parasites (cod worms). Gross. Haddock makes the best fish and chips hands down.

alright, talking about Fish and Chips, I grew up in a little town called Fleetwood (google it, its just a little North of Blackpool) and we had some deli chippy shops, Dolphins, in the back streets of Fleetwood, do some crunchy and crispy chips, where as Chatworth Chippy do a mean fish and their Donna meat is the bomb. Now I live in Shrewsbury (I know, quiet a trek from my home town) and like 80% of the takeouts do fast food with little to none grease because Shrewsbury is a mid/high class estate area and the snobs of the place don't want to get grease on their designer clothes that costed them above £1000 for the outfit, so its bland, and horrible and tastes like cardboard, it took me forever to find a chippy shop and a pizza place that did greasy fast food that tasted like home (because being half an hour to an hour bus journey away from Cleveleys and Blackpool meant I could enjoy all their takeouts (also, if you ever do a pizza takeaway vid, I recommend Duke's Pizza in Cleveleys, Lancashire, they do amazing pizzas)), so yeah, I enjoy on a weekly bases a chippy tea from a little place called Frydays, and they do a proper northern chippy tea, so good!

The best Fish and Chips is up North in Lancashire and Yorkshire, damn they are too die for. I found Fish and Chips in London bland and rather a depressing affair and the biggest scandal is they charge you for scraps!!!! Sacrilege lol. When I lived in London my mate used to wind up local fish and chips shops by asking for a chip barm cake hahahaha the confusion on their faces.

I am envious. My local fish and chips place in the U.S. is a British fish and chips restaurant, and it is not good at all.

There's a place called Banny's fish and chips in Burnley that is too die for. There's always queues to get in but they do the most incredible indian take on fish and chips as well as a great traditional fish and chips. Really nice seating area too.

Surprised the best didn't come from Whitby. If you're doing a followup, a lot of chefs say their best fish and chips come from Whitby, usually the magpie cafe.

"The only thing missing from that dish is the VIEW"? The VIEW! This is the most stupid food review I've ever come across. What do you expect to see out of a Bath Fish & Chip Shop window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of Wildebeest sweeping majestically by? Sheesh! And please, for goodness sake, trim the fat from these videos. They're flabby. Nevertheless, thank you for the work you have done.

The only fish and chips worth eating, regardless of shop, is when they are just made, anything else is soggy and kept in a heater.
