There are around 8,500 fish and chip shops in the UK, with fish and chips probably being Britains most long-standing popular fast food. Fish and chip shops are to be found in just about every part of the UK.

The fish sold is mainly cod and haddock, and it is generally covered in a batter of flour and water and deep fried.

Haddock is slightly more expensive than the cod, but is a lovely fish and makes a special treat.

Traditionally "mushy peas" are also sold in fish and chip shops - with haddock, chips and mushy peas making a truly mouth-watering traditional English meal.

Although originally selling mainly fish, chips and peas, more recently fish and chip shops have diversified into selling fried chicken, kebabs, sausages, and a variety of other foods, probably in response to the burgeoning fast food industry in the UK, which now offers a considerable variety of foods from the four corners of the world.
