Friday 1st June will see people across the country celebrating their love of fish and chips as they come together on National Fish & Chip Day!
Fish and chip lovers in Paignton, Devon will be joining the rest of the UK to celebrate again as Paignton Pier Chippy Co. will be marking the occasion by serving up freshly cooked fish and chips!
In 2017, National Fish & Chip Day was one of the biggest awareness days of the year in the UK so don’t miss your chance to be part of it! Pop in on the day and join the celebration!
Paignton Pier Chippy Co. has been serving fresh fish and chips to the local community and visitors to Paignton since December 2017 and they’re asking customers to come together to celebrate Britain’s best-loved fast food by tucking in to a portion of sizzling fish and chips.
Owner Lorraine Arnold said: “We all agree nothing can beat a portion of steaming fresh white fish fried in hot, crispy batter, served with a pile of lip-smacking chips – the only debate is whether you top it with salt, vinegar, sauce, mushy peas or a pickled egg!
