In 2016, National Fish and Chip Day was one of the biggest awareness days of the year in the UK and fish and chip lovers in Weymouth will be joining the rest of the UK to celebrate again on Friday, June 2nd.
Paul Hay, of Fish n Fritz in Market Street, Weymouth, will be marking the occasion by offering two great deals.
Fish n Fritz has been serving fresh fish and chips to the local community and visitors in Weymouth since 1997 and they’re asking customers to come together to celebrate Britain’s best-loved fast food by tucking in to a portion of sizzling fish and chips.
Paul Hay said: “We all agree nothing can beat a portion of steaming fresh white fish fried in hot, crispy batter, served with a pile of lip-smacking chips – the only debate is whether you top it with salt, vinegar, sauce, mushy peas or a pickled egg! So celebrate British fish and chips and join in with National Fish & Chip Day on Friday, June 2nd by coming down to Fish n Fritz and enjoying a good old-fashioned Friday portion of fish and chips. To mark the day, Fish n Fritz will be offering two large ‘Cod & Chips’ for £15 in our restaurant or two large ‘Cod & Chips’ for £12 to takeaway. I look forward to serving you!”
National Fish & Chip Day is about giving fish and chips the recognition it deserves and helping to secure its position as the nation’s favourite dish. The event, which takes place each year and already has the backing of many of the key players in the industry.
