Norfolk’s best quality fish and chip shops have been named in a national guide. 

To celebrate the UK’s great independent fish and chip shops the National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) and Sarson's vinegar teamed up to produce a guide which lists “quality accredited” chippies. 

The guide recognises the best quality and best tasting fish and chips and promotes the use of fish sourced from environmentally sustainable stocks.  

Four fish and chips from Norfolk made the cut. 

1. French’s Fish Shop 

Where: The Quayside, Wells 

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

“William French started the business in 1921, after serving in the first World War. The shop is positioned on the quayside 20 metres from the sea. It has picturesque views of the harbours and the marshes.  

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

2. Lucy's Fish and Chips
