An entire day dedicated to fish and chips… it doesn’t get better than that! With over 200 million portions sold in British chip shops every year, we have one more excuse to celebrate the national dish. 

What is National Fish and Chip Day? 

Launched in 2015, it is a day of recognition for the nation’s favourite. It also shines a light on those who work hard to make sure it's something that we can enjoy; from the farmers and fishermen who source the ingredients, to the restaurants and pubs that serve them. As something that can easily be overlooked, it’s important to be reminded of the hard work and effort that ensures your meal makes its way to you. 
Ever wondered why schools across the UK serve fish on Fridays? Or why this is the day many choose to have a fish and chips dinner? It is all due to the Roman Catholic belief that meat ought not to be eaten on a Friday. Hence, why National Fish and Chip Day is celebrated on the first Friday of June! This year, however, it is extra special - as it would be unfair to overshadow The Queen on her momentous Platinum Jubilee, National Fish and Chip Day is being celebrated a week early on 27th May. This means you get 2 back-to-back Fridays filled with national celebrations! 

How to celebrate National Fish and Chip Day 

We recommend you come on down to The Seashell of Lisson Grove to devour this Great British cuisine. It wasn’t named The Best Fish and Chips in London by Michelin Star chef and food critic Alain Ducasse for no reason! What better way to celebrate than with the best?  
Choose between our easy-to-use takeaway service or our acclaimed restaurant to sit and enjoy your meal. We look forward to spending the day with you!
