The best fish and chips in Norfolk have been named in a national guidebook.

To celebrate the UK’s large independent fish and chip shops, the National Federation of Fish Fryers (NFFF) and Sarson’s Vinegar have teamed up to produce a guide that lists ‘accredited quality’ chips.

The guide recognizes the best quality, best tasting fish and chips and encourages the use of fish from environmentally friendly stocks.

Four Norfolk fish and chips made the cut.

In the guide it says, “This year, French’s 100 years of frying fish and chips in Wells and now in its fourth generation of family ownership.

“William French started the company in 1921, after serving in the First World War. The shop is positioned on the quay 20 meters from the sea. It offers picturesque views of the harbors and marshes.

“Generations of families have traveled to eat freshly cooked fish and chips, while sitting on the small quay wall watching the fishing boats come in with the first tide.”
