Aldeburgh Fish and Chips

226 High St, Aldeburgh IP15 5DB

Aldeburgh Fish and Chips are widely regarded as one of the best Fish and Chip Shops in Britain. Fried the same way since 1967, they use fresh fish from the East Coast and delicious local potatoes to make their own chips.

The shop’s traditional methods have remained unchanged since 1967, although technology has improved over time. In 2016, both the Aldeburgh Fish & Chip Shop and The Golden Galleon had 6-pan High Efficiency ranges installed with an advanced oil filtration system to produce the highest quality fish and chips.
