"Our research goes to show that there is still huge demand for fish and chips across the country but even more so for coastal towns with hundreds of fish and chip shops serving to hungry tourists.

"Our customer data reveals we have seen an impressive increase of 28 per cent in fish and chip shop independents opening compared to the Summer of 2019. It just goes to show that us Brits never get tired of a good old bag of fish and chips." www.takepayments.com
