You’d better believe it’s National Fish and Chip Day!

Launched in 2015 by the National Edible Oil Distributors’ Association, this annual event celebrates a British classic sold at the heart of every community.

Each year, we Britons eat some 382 million portions of fish – that’s six servings for every man, woman and child!

According to the National Federation of Fish Friers, there are an estimated 10,500 specialist fish and chip shops in the UK, drastically outnumbering other fast food outlets.

Earlier today, we asked you to vote for the Medway chippie that’s batter than all the rest. 

The results are in – just in time to order for dinner!
