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.
