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?

Fish and chips is the meal that puts the great into Great Britain. Since coming into fashion in the 1860s it has sustained us through two world wars (the meal was famously exempt from rationing in both conflicts).

We’ve tested every* single one of the nation’s 10,500 chip shops and restaurants and feel fully qualified to name the nation’s best 20. Here you go. We’re now off to have a gastric band fitted…

*Poetic license
