The UK's 20 best fish and chip shops

There are many tests that can guarantee the quality of a gentleman’s standing: can they quote from Trading Places at will? Do they like association football? Have they got a battered Patrick breakdancing jacket in their wardrobe? We could go on… However, there is only one fool proof assurance of a fellow’s temperament: do they consider fish and chips the pinnacle of culinary sophistication?
