    We do ok in Torquay. Hanbury's has won Fish and Chip Shop of the year about 5 times in the last decade. Frank Bruno presented the award once.

    Drakes is another local chippy that serves very high nice fish and chips indeed.

    15 ywears ago you say? Wasn't that when they stopped wrapping your dinner in newspaper? Maybe you just got addicted to the taste of newsprint and never recovered?

    Just kidding. But 15 years or so ago is about when the cod stocks collapsed off the east coast of Canada, I imagine it might be the same elswhere? Is the type of fish an issue?

    To be honest it's more likely decades of smoking like a trooper have fucked his tastebuds and left everything tasting of tobacco and smoke

    Bilbo that could be the problem, but I know its not. Everybody feels the same. Mum and Dad had the best Chippy in the North everybody said so. Nowadays they cook in oil not Fat, I think thats the reason. CGM we get ours from the same ocean but further east, I heard the stocks are lower its mostly Cod or Halibut we eat.

    Over here it's pretty much all halibut, I'd be surprised if you can buy cod fish and chips above the table anywhere in Canada, and if you could it would be very expensive.

    I'm not sure I get the , is this a mad cow reference or something? Must be, I would expect cod to be a more expensive than beef under normal circumstance.

    Cod here is cheaper than halibut here, which is too bad because halibut is far superior IMO.

    Yeah the oil change could be a cause. I still think the chips in Drakes and Hanbury's in Torquay are good though, although I have to say I rarely eat chips, maybe once a year or so.

    I always buy fresh Cod and Haddock myself though every couple weeks. I know from experience if you don't cook it within about ten minutes of buying it it seems to start stinking like a whore's vagina and tasting pretty much as bad.

    Maybe modern chippies don't use such fresh fish as in the past?

    I'm surprised. Must be a different kind of cod. I hear west coast cod is kinda flaky.

    I find it to have less taste and a poorer consistency than halibut. Goddamn, now I want some fish and chips.

    The fish and chips in Yorkshire are the finest anywhere - FACT

    I was a student in Manchester and never found any decent ones - shite. I work in London regularly and have yet to find a decent one - shite.

    I live just quarter of a mile from the place that does the best fish and chips ever - even surpasses Harry Ramsdens (the original restaurant is just 2 miles down the road) . People come for miles to this place - coach trips are regular

    Welcome to Murgatroyds

    Anyone reading this within a couple of hours drive I suggest you come and give them a try. In fact - sod it, anyone within 8 hours flight should come give them a try
    Don't bully fat kids - they've got enough on their plate

    I have battered chips every Friday, tastes beautiful. The fish is crap at the chippy so just get steak and kidney pie. I love my Fridays.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.
