Whilst fine dining is perfect for special occasions, sometimes nothing can beat the Great British tradition of fish and chips. And nowhere does it better than Norfolk.
Eat al fresco, perched on the sea wall enjoying the sights and sounds of the harbour or settle down indoors and soak up the atmosphere of a bustling fish and chip emporium.
The inspiration of Norfolk celebrity chef Galton Blackiston, No1 Cromer has it all. A superb sea-front location, great food and friendly service: this Norfolk gem is a National Fish & Chips awards finalist.
No1 offers everything from traditional fish and chips (eat in or takeaway) to modern British dishes and mouth-watering tapas, served in the stylish upstairs restaurant. It wouldn’t be Cromer without crabs and No1’s signature crab burger is an absolute winner.
Still going strong after 95 years, French’s Fish Shop is an award-winning North Norfolk institution. Sit inside and enjoy delicious, freshly cooked fish and chips or sample another of French’s many chip shop favourites.
Things really liven up in the summer months when you can join dozens of other French’s regulars and passing voyagers enjoying their takeaways on the harbour wall opposite. Keep an eye open for those greedy seagulls though!
The Grosvenor knows more than a thing or two about fish and chips; they’ve been at the heart of Norwich’s food scene for 90 years and do the traditional things the traditional way.
But hang on, there’s a lot more going on at this buzzy city hub. Seabass, squid and shark rub shoulders with classics like cod and chips or toad in the hole. Grab a table downstairs with friends and enjoy great food and good music.
Going beyond the standard cod and haddock, The Three Cottages is a destination for fish connoisseurs who will find rarities such as panga on the menu. For the health conscious there’s a delicious steamed fish option and sharing platters for dining with friends.
The restaurant is not licensed but in keeping with the relaxed ambience, you are welcome to bring your own wine or beer with no corkage charge.
In a setting designated as ‘An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, this gem is surrounded by shops showcasing local crafts and produce. Eric’s has become a destination for fish and chip enthusiasts from far and wide.
The freshest of fish is beer battered, cooked in beef dripping and served with irresistible golden crunchy chips - it just doesn’t get any better than this! In addition to this classic chip shop fare, Eric’s lively eatery also offers dishes influenced by modern European cuisine. Try the delicious halloumi and spinach arancini for a true taste of the Med.
