The Fisherman, Settle
I have mentioned this Fish & Chip restaurant several times in other articles but it really needs to be added to the @tasteem database as it’s quite exceptional.
Fish & Chips is considered a staple food in the United Kingdom, and like it or not we are famous for this quite unhealthy dish.
Finding a good ‘chippy’ however is very hard in today’s times. There are lots about but most are average at best and there are some truly terrible ones.
The Fisherman at Settle in North Yorkshire is truly the best I have ever eaten. For us to visit it’s a 45 minute journey and we have made that journey just to eat here before.
I can’t say I have tried anything else than, ‘Fish & Chips’ from the menu, but there are plenty of other things to choose from.
The outside is nothing special and has a take-away attached to the left side of the restaurant. We have always eaten inside so I can’t speak for this.
Inside is relatively small, but never empty despite the photograph. The other side of the restaurant was quite full.
Just look at those Fish and Chips. Every time we eat them, we depart feeling fulfilled and quite sustained. @bingbabe is a native of the Philippines and just loves eating here.
She only said to me after today’s helping, ‘they are so good!’.
You just need to drink a full fat coke to go with this kind of food and don’t forget the malt vinegar.
I personally douse my chips with this stuff as it makes all the difference.
The restaurant is open EVERY day unlike some, and two helpings of Fish and Chips with two cokes set us back a cool £20.40. Great value in my opinion for food of the highest quality!
You can see my plate is empty, a very familiar sight when departing from the Fisherman, Settle.
I’m not sure about this sign. It looks like it’s from the fifties and genuinely looks that old!
