More about this staple in the UK
The debate is still on about who should get credit for the combo of fish and chips, however, it's safe to say it was somewhere in England, though the verdict is still not in on whether the credit of inventing this popular snack should go up north or down south. The first fish and chip shop in the North of England is thought to have opened in Mossely, near Oldham, Lancashire, around 1863. Mr Lees sold fish and chips from a wooden hut in the market. However in London, it is said that Joseph Malin opened a fish and chip shop in Cleveland Street within the sound of Bow Bells in 1860.
