Inspired by al's Fat Chip Posting - I'm doing a quick survey on Fish & Chip prices across the land.
Here (Oban) a standard Haddock & Chips (colloquially known as a Fish Supper) will set you back around £6.50 upwards
and unfortunately not be of great quality, despite the briny lapping at the side of the western pavements. Serious outlay for a family of 6 too
If I go to Dunoon I can get similar for arond £4.50
Best quality/flavour I've had was from the shack on the pier at Tobermory at approx £6
What's the story elsewhere?
I am totally jealous that you are within such easy reach of Mull (home of my father, my fathers father, my fathers fathers.......).
Down here in sunny Weston - by- the- Mud I paid £10.40 last night for a double cod with large chips. They gave us so many chips that there is a full portion left over (reheated chips... yum!).
We will be in Watchet in a couple of weeks, at the little chip shop just along from the harbour and will pay just under a tenner for double cod'n'chips.
Haddock is always more expensive than cod down here, so £4.50 is really cheap, although the cost of the petrol from Somerset to Dunoon may offset any saving... plus the chips would be cold by the time I got home.
