Top fish and chip shops in North Wales

Fish and chips is part of our cultural cuisine here in north Wales. Its a convenient take out option, when you and the family want to eat outdoors and dig you toes into the warm sand and watch a beautiful sunset!

The story of fish and chips in north Wales stems back from “Fish Friday’s” in Wales where it was customary to eat fish on the Friday of every week, most likely with some sort of root vegetable. The humble potato was made widespread after its introduction by Sir Walter Ralley after his reported discovery of the new world in 16 Century.  The potato arrived into Ireland soon after, and then subsequently arrived on the shores of Wales. The two seem to have been combined together soon after.

Its a common staple in most senses, and the two ingredients that where quite abundant for the working class man. Fish which was plentiful from the shores of north Wales and the humble potato which was worked and farmed on the lands.

No longer a treat just for the Friday, it is now consumed daily and loved by millions who flock to the shores of north Wales each year. Below we have outlined some of the best Fish and Chip shops in north Wales as quick guide.

Remember the best fish and chips can be found where the fish travels straight from sea to plate in one day, like in many parts of  North Wales and especially on the island of Anglesey.  What a better place to have a feast with the stunning back drop of the Snowdonia or a beach sunset?!.

We will do a blog soon on your home caught fish and chips, and how I do my own here on the island. You don’t get much fresher than that 😉  We hope you enjoy!
