Friday 4th June will see people across the country celebrating their love of fish and chips as they come together on National Fish & Chip Day!
In Weymouth the award winning Fish ’n’ Fritz in Market Street will be joining the rest of the UK to celebrate again, as they will be marking the occasion by reducing the price of their cod and chips on the day by £1.50 in the restaurant and takeaway.
In 2020, despite being in the midst of the pandemic, National Fish & Chip Day was one of the biggest awareness days of the year in the UK, with almost 50 million people hearing, seeing or reading something about it, so don’t miss your chance to be part of it! Pop in on the day and join the celebration!
Fish ’n’ Fritz has been serving fresh fish and chips to the local community and visitors to Weymouth for over 24 years and they’re asking customers to come together to celebrate Britain’s best-loved fast food by tucking into a portion of sizzling fish and chips.
Paul Hay, the owner of Fish ’n’ Fritz, said: “We all agree nothing can beat a portion of steaming fresh white fish fried in hot, crispy batter, served with a pile of lip-smacking chips – the only debate is whether you top it with salt, vinegar, sauce, mushy peas or a pickled egg!
“So celebrate British fish and chips and join in with National Fish & Chip Day on Friday 4th June by coming down to Fish ’n’ Fritz and enjoying a good old-fashioned Friday night fish supper…or lunch! To mark the day, we will be reducing the price of our cod and chips by £1.50. We look forward to serving you!”
National Fish & Chip Day is about giving fish and chips the recognition it deserves and helping to secure its position as the nation’s favourite dish. The event, which will take place on the first Friday in June every year, already has the backing of key players in the industry.
The national event is once again being championed by trade organisation, The National Edible Oil Distributors’ Association, who represent packers and distributors of oils and fats in the UK.
NEODA President, Gary Lewis, comments, “National Fish & Chip Day has become more popular each year and in 2021 we want it to be even bigger! It’s a celebration of the stars who work hard to bring Brits their favourite traditional takeaway. We want to bring the whole industry together to celebrate and showcase the great British institution that is Fish and Chips. To help build support in anticipation for the event, we are urging people to start tweeting with the hashtag #NationalFishandChipDay.”
