I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU HAVE ONLY ONE SCOTTISH CHIPPER, ARGUABLY THE BST FISH IN THE UK IS LANDED IN SCOTLAND. ARBROATH HAS TWO FIRST CLASS CHIPPERS, PEPO'S AND MARCO'S BOTH WITHIN 100 METERS OF WHERE THE FISH IS LANDED, YOU SHOULD ALL TRY IT!!
The best fish and chips I've had in years was last year - Pinnacles in Seahouses, Northumberland. A truly gut-gorging experience!
Having previously lived in London for 10 years, I'm delighted to see that none have made the list. I was on self-imposed exile from my favourite dish because the quality ranged from god-awful to marginally edible. That, and often being charged often over a tenner for the privilage at arrogant 'gastro-chippies'.
To be fair, well done to MSN for once for publishing a third party top ten, rather than their usual self-proclaimed listing. The hacks would have put at least 5 of the 10 in London, with the odd token 'surprisingly good' chippy they visited on a weekend escape to Dorset / Norfolk.
