The annual Fry Magazine Awards honour the best of fish and chips across the United Kingdom.
This year however, the magazine has not honoured a single one of Bedfordshire’s famous chippies in a snub we would like to correct.
Their top 50 best fish and chip shops include ones from Staffordshire to South Yorkshire, from Monmouthshire to Milton Keynes.
While the awards did honour some fantastic fisheries, sadly none in Bedfordshire won an award.

We thought we would correct this by writing some of Bedfordshire’s greatest chip shops in Bedfordshire which should have been included.
