IN honour of national fish and chips day we wanted to know where in Wirral serves the best British tradition.

What makes a good serving of fish and chips?

Is it the crispy batter surrounding the flaky fish teamed with perfectly cooked chips?

Do you add mushy peas or gravy or curry sauce?

Do they taste better when you eat them out of yesterday’s newspapers?

So far in our Best of 2023 competition, we’ve given out six awards in Wirral:

Best for Hair – The Hair, Beauty and Nail Lounge

Best for Pies – Pies4U

Best for Nails – Ebony J Nails & Beauty

Best for Roast Dinner – The Fox and Hounds
