Nothing is more British than the fish and chip shop. Whether you prefer enjoying them by the seafront or slouching on your sofa, Norfolk has got you covered

Grosvenor Fish Bar

28 Lower Goat Lane, Norwich

The Grosvenor Fish Bar has been a much-loved resident of Pottergate for over thirty years but is far from the average chippy. As well as serving all the much-loved favourites, the menu at Grosvenor’s includes some unique dishes such as garlic squid rings with aioli, tuna steak rolls served with wasabi mayo, and a seabass wrap with a tangy mango salsa.

The shop has also teamed up with its neighbouring pub The Birdcage so you can now enjoy your meal with a nice cold beer - they’ll even bring it over to the pub for you.

Mary Janes

27-29 Garden Street, Cromer

Don’t be fooled by the modest appearance of this little blue restaurant on the North Norfolk coast, because its classic fish and chips are not to be missed. The staff at Mary Janes has been serving the people of Cromer (and its many visitors) for over fifty years.

The place is a perfect example of the phrase ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’, offering an opportunity to enjoy the classic fish and chip shop atmosphere while enjoying delicious dishes that have stood the test of time.

1 New Street, Cromer

Owned by Michelin starred chef Galton Blackiston, No1 in Cromer offers two different types of dining: a top notch fish and chip shop below a renowned seafood restaurant. As well as offering classic dishes such as haddock and chips, they’ve also added their own international twist to the menu with dishes such as tempura prawns with Japanese BBQ sauce and lager, soy and ginger marinated whitebait with wasabi mayo.

Tuck into a hearty Cromer crab burger or try the homemade Norfolk ice cream (made with milk sourced from the nearby Lakenham Creamery) while enjoying views over the beach and Cromer Pier.

The Rembrandt

65 Dereham Road, Easton

The Rembrandt offers classic fish and chips but has a unique restaurant feel and is another local favourite that has built up a strong reputation due to its welcoming service and mouth-watering food.

Just off the A47, The Rembrandt makes a great place to stop off during your journey through the county with enough options to satisfy the whole family (including pizzas and an extensive dessert menu).

The Sheringham Trawler

50 High Street, Sheringham

The Sheringham Trawler is a restaurant that really lives up to its name due to its cute and kitsch nautical décor and, more importantly, its wide selection of fish. There is something for everyone, with gluten-free options, homemade burgers and mixed salads and it prides itself on a family-friendly approach.

The excellent customer service and tasty food has earned it rave reviews and is often one of the busiest places in town.

Eric’s Fish and Chips

Drove Orchards, Thornham Road, Thornham

Voted one of the top 20 shops in the National Fish & Chip Awards 2018, Eric’s Fish and Chips in the pretty North Norfolk coastal village of Thornham serves beer battered fish and beef dripping chips along side some inventive extras such as gruyere and spinach arancini or black pudding fritters.

Eric’s is owned by Eric, head chef at Titchwell Manor who “[blends] nostalgia with a modern European menu influence”, all served in a stylish and modern shop.

Holt Fish Bar

11 Shirehall Plain, Holt

Situated in the charming village of Holt, the fish and chip shop has been praised by visitors and locals for its crunchy batter, reasonable prices and fish that melts in your mouth.

Its central location makes it the perfect place to pause and take a break from exploring Holt’s unique independent shops.

French’s Fish Shop

10 The Quay, Wells-next-the-Sea

Located on the pretty quay in Wells-next-the-Sea, you can enjoy your fish and chips with a view at French’s Fish Shop. Open for over 90 years, it has gained awards and accolades for its fresh battered fish and crispy chips.

For a decadent seaside treat, order crispy mac ‘n’ cheese bites with your haddock, cod or scampi and chips.

Platten’s Fish & Chips

12 The Quay, Wells-next-the-Sea

Two doors down from French’s is Platten’s, serving fish and chips since 1966 with an augmented menu of fresh seafood, meats and pies to sample.

You can take your fish and chips away or order some from the Season restaurant which has beer battered whiting fillet with hand cut chips, crushed mint peas and tartare sauce alongside a diverse menu of seafood dishes.
