Celebrating National Fish and Chips Day with Norwich’s finest

Winston Churchill referred to them as ‘the good companions’, John Lennon drowned his in tomato sauce and even the Queen who has access to the world’s finest restaurants and a never-ending budget for haute cuisine, enjoys tucking into the nations favourite dish.

We asked our engineer’s where you can find the finest Chippy in Norfolk and here is what they had to say…

Mary Janes

Mary Janes Cromer

When looking to get his dose of Omega 3, our Tanker Operator, Paul Robinson puts Mary Jane’s in Cromer at the top of his list. This award winning fish and chip shop serves up more than just a helping of food by supporting numerous local sports clubs as well as charities such as Cancer research UK.

The Frying Machine

The Frying Machine Norwich

Drainage Engineer Dean had a few suggestions for where to get the best fish and Chips in town but The Frying Machine Norwich remains his go to spot.  Boasting a four star rating on TripAdvisor this take out is lauded for it’s friendly staff and great service and of course it’s mouth watering fish and chips.

The Chip Inn Long Stratton

The Chip Inn, Long Stratton

Metro Rod Norwich Director Shaun O’Brien knows exactly where to get his favourite fish and chips after a long day at the office, and that’s The Chip Inn in Long Stratton. This family run business has been operating for over 30 years and has been passed down for 3 generations of the Austin family who runs it. With such a long standing history it’s no wonder that they are a favourite amongst the locals.

Grosvenor Fish Bar in Norwich

The Grosvenor Fish Bar in Norwich gets the ladies vote as both Director Jean O’Brien’s & Operations Manager Kate Styles’ favourite fish spot. This is not your average Chippy sporting one of the most Instagrammable facades and a lush interior to boot, but this unconventional Chippy doesn’t stop at that to stand out from the crowd, they also have an interesting selection of sandwiches and wraps available if you feel like a more sophisticated version of Britain’s favourite take-out.
