To celebrate National Fish and Chip Day on Friday, we asked our readers on Twitter to send in recommendations for the best fish and chips in Norfolk. Here's a look at some of the places suggested.


• French's Fish and Chip Shop, 10 Quayside, Wells-next-the-Sea

Seaside towns are full of choice when it comes to fish and chips and Wells certainly has an abundance of options, but French's Fish and Chip Shop seems to be a firm favourite with some of our readers. The traditional British chippy, which has both a restaurant and takeaway, was an area winner at the National Fish and Chip Awards 2016 and due to its location offers great views of Wells Harbour for you to enjoy while you eat.

• Straits Fish and Chip Shop, 32a High Street, Sheringham Another traditional seaside fish and chip shop that comes highly recommended by locals and tourists alike, especially by The Prairie Cottage (@theprairiehouse) who have said on Twitter they think that Straits are 'top notch'.

• Mother Hubbard's, 91 Market Place, Swaffham This fish and chip shop and 52-seater restaurant prides itself as being the home of 'award winning' fish and chips in Swaffham and this year is celebrating its 25th year of serving the community. Several of our readers recommended this particular place, including @BrockettMatthew and @marcusandlisa11.
