FOR many of us, Friday night is the designated go-to evening for a fish and chip supper.

And with Good Friday arguably one of the most popular days of the year to partake in the British classic, we have chosen five of the mosty popular chippies in the area.

  1. Hooked on the Heath​, Northwich Road, Knutsford

Although a relative newcomer to the fish and chips game, this chippy has already scooped plenty of awards and admirers.

There are also plenty of five-star reviews on Tripadvisor, with one customer saying, "It's a simple meal, fish and chips, but many takeways demonstrate it is not easy to get it right.

"This place got it right for us today and I thanked them for a cracking lunch."

2. Big Fish, Church Street, Wilmslow

With a Google rating of 4.6, this chippy is one of the best around, with one reviewer commenting, "Best chippy in Wilmslow, and they give you proper portions, unlike some of the other swanky ones in Knutsford and Alderley Edge."

3. Foster's Fish & Chips, Chorley Hall Lane, Alderley Edge

A simple and smart restaurant and takeaway, part of a small chain, with sustainability in mind.

It's another chippy which scores highly with punters, claiming a 4.5 rating on Google.

One reviewer said: "Wow wow wow what a gorgeous chip shop. Came because of the good reviews and they were not wrong.

"The chips are big and juicy, then mushy peas were spot on and the sausage was also very nice. Good portions, clean shop and friendly staff. 10/10"

5. The Codfather, Manchester Road​, Northwich

This award-winning chippy regularly features as one of the best in the whole country.

They also specialise in gluten-free fish and chips, which gives them even more of an edge over their rivals.

As one five-star reviewer said: "If you want the best fish and chips in Mid Cheshire this is the place to visit."
