Fish and Chips at 149, a chippy in the East Yorkshire seaside resort of Bridlington, is celebrating being named the UK’s best fish and chip shop in 2011’s National Fish and Chip Awards.
For over 150 years, the British have enjoyed fish and chips – sometimes wrapped in yesterday’s news, often smothered in salt and vinegar – and for nearly a quarter of a century, the National Fish and Chip Awards have recognised the quality and hard work of chip shop owners the length and breadth of the British Isles.
Yorkshire has long been renown for its splendid fish and chips, whether it be chunky chips served with scraps in Last of the Summer Wine country in Holmfirth, or battered cod from the world-famous Magpie Cafe in Whitby, and now Fish and Chips at 149 has deservedly put Bridlington on the fried fish map.
A great place for a relaxing holiday, there are plenty of Bridlington B&Bs and Bridlington hotels to choose from on Hello Yorkshire. Check them out and be sure to pop down to 149 to sample the best fish and chips in the UK.
