Entering the award-winning Bay Fish and Chip shop, the first things you notice are the blackboards. Langoustines, hand-dived scallops and battered smoked hake, for example, are written under the day’s date on one board while the origins of the day’s potatoes and fish are on the other – including the name of the diver who caught the shellfish. It becomes immediately clear that origin and sourcing are not marketing gimmicks for this establishment but are what defines it. Fish can be baked, griddled or fried and a gluten-free option is available. It is also fantastically good value, with the extra efforts they make not apparent in the pricing. Open late into the evening, there’s free parking outside, menus available in braille and easy access for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
