Ah, the classic British chippy. Fish and chips traditionally eaten on a Friday and still served up regularly in work canteens. It's a dying tradition and one I love so I am pleased my local fish and chip shop is still thriving when Indian food has become the nation's favourite take-away.
King Neptune is a family business and is stupidly busy on a Friday. You can eat in or take-away with your chips open or wrapped. The best thing? The chips of course! Just the way a chippy should make them - chunky, soft and covered in salt and vinegar (if that's your personal preference.)
The food here is fried in peanut oil, which is something I realised when my friend couldn't eat the chips due to his nut allergy. My only criticism is that the sign warning customers about the peanut oil should be prominently displayed, not in the corner of the shop where the till is.
Make a stop here if you're passing through. You won't be disappointed.
