Yorkshire Fisheries, 14 - 18 Topping Street, Blackpool, FY1 3AQ – Visit Now
No food is so intertwined with our idea of the British seaside as fish and chips. Records show that the meal first appeared in the UK in the 1860s and it has remained a staple ever since. Yorkshire Fisheries isn’t quite so old, but the history books show that a Mr. William Taylor was working the business as a fried fish supplier as far back as 1907 — making it the longest serving chippy in Blackpool.
The shop took on its current moniker shortly after the Second World War, and has been striving to supply locals and visitors with the finest fish and chips in the town for generations now. While the potatoes are no longer delivered by horse and cart — there’s online ordering and delivery available nowadays — the basics remain the same: freshly delivered fish and the best potatoes of the season.
the fresh haddock is delivered daily, while the cod is frozen at sea, ensuring that it retains its freshness and flavour.
Indeed, Yorkshire Fisheries is a multiple prize winner, with awards including the Quality Award from the NFFF, Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor, and the Gold Taste of Lancashire Award. Available to eat in or take out, the fresh haddock is delivered daily, while the cod is frozen at sea, ensuring that it retains its freshness and flavour. Both are filleted and cut to size in the shop, where the potatoes are also peeled and chipped every day.
Of course, as with any self respecting chippy, there are plenty of options available if you don’t fancy fish. There is a full range of pies, ranging from a vegetarian Cheese and Onion option, to a meat-lovers Steak Pudding. Hungry customers can also avail themselves of a sausage, a burger or roast chicken. That the menu also lists sides of gravy and barmcakes should go without saying — this is the anointed home of traditional fish and chips in the great Northern town of Blackpool after all.
