I see that the top 10 list of fish ‘n chip shops in the U.K. has been published. The one I’m going to make a beeline for the next time I’m Over There is Harbor Lights in Falmouth, Cornwall, because of this pic:
Granted, it may have been a promotional gimmick to get that many people to queue up outside the place, but whatever.
All that said, however, I’m still a huge fan of Sharon’s Plaice, in Boscastle, Cornwall:
…because I have never eaten such good fish ‘n chips before, anywhere. And yes, the potatoes are locally-sourced (delivered fresh daily) as is the fish, caught right offshore and brought into the harbor. I hope it survives until my next visit — Boscastle is a small village, and very dependent on tourism to keep its head above water, so any retail establishment there leads a precarious existence (other than the pubs, of course).
