With an average rating of 5/5 across almost 3,000 reviews there’s little doubt that Yorkshire Fisheries is one of the best fish and chip shops in Blackpool.

Dating back more than a century to 1907 to the days of William Taylor’s ownership the chippy was named Yorkshire Fisheries after the Second World War.

In 1989, the shop was bought by George and Val Vasiliou, and they upheld its reputation as “the best chippy in town”. When they decided to retire in 2005, George’s niece and husband, Maria and Pavlos, took over the reins, wanting very much to keep the quality and standard just the same.

The chippy in Topping Street has won many awards including the Quality Award from the NFFF, Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor and the Gold Taste of Lancashire Award.

It’s clear that this award-winning chippy is a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike with recent TripAdvisor reviews rating it as one of the seaside town’s best.

Rated by one as “the best in town” Yorkshire Fisheries one reviewer posted this week: “Great food, great service, and super friendly staff. I would recommend the homemade curry sauce – we loved it! We’ll definitely be returning.”

During a visit from Coventry Heidi and her husband took time out of their busy day to head to Yorkshire Fisheries and they weren’t disappointed.

My husband said that the cod was the best he had in many years and hands down the best in Blackpool,” Heidi posted.

All the fish is cooked to order at Yorkshire Fisheries but it’s clear from the reviews that it’s definitely worth the wait.

One reviewer, who visited last weekend, posted: “Staff were friendly, attentive and on the ball. Food was fresh and cooked to order. Went for a special myself and it was superb. Opted for beans instead of mushy peas and a side of gravy. All tasted fantastic and the batter was amazing. Loved it, will be back in future.”
