Don't drink wine, so either a cup of tea or a decent beer. Would be quite interesting to find out what kind of wine goes well with it though I do admit.

I think quite a sour white would go well with the chips, but i think a sweeter white would be needed for the fish

I wondered how long it would be before that one came up:lol:

Yes, I'm looking forward to the suggestions too. I have also eaten fish & chips, accompanied by a good strong cup of tea. Nothing wrong with that. Not tried them with beer - not sure about that.

For those fish and chip lovers familiar with the Yorkshire Coast, my late father frequented the Magpie Cafe in Whitby. He once related, the story of someone having their fish and chips with a mug of hot chocolate. He thought it was the ultimate sacrilege!

On the basis of the fish a sweet white would slide down nicely, but I think that with the crunchy batter Paul discribes (The Bank in Nottingham does very nice crunchy batter) a pint of bitter or real ale would be more appropiate.

White wine for fish. A red, I find, kills the taste of a white "meat". Try a sparkling before.

There's only two drinks you are legally allowed to have with chips.

1. Bitter Shandy

2. Dandelion & Burdock.

Case closed.

When I visit Rick Stein's Fish & Chips Restaurant in Padstow, North Cornwall - I drink draught Chalky's Bark Beer brewed by local Sharps Brewery. It's a crisp, dry cross between Lager and Bitter, apparently intended to accompany Fish & Chips.

Nothing wrong with a nice red with turkey etc. If you like it, drink it!!
If the wine is too sour, stir in some sugar!
I must agree a hot cup of tea hits the spot, and helps wash the grease down!!
Vimto is ok too.
