Many people will be frequenting their favourite chippy this evening as part of a Good Friday tradition.
Blackburn plays host to a number of fish and chip shops – but what are the four best according to you?
In fourth place, the Chippery on Corporation Street in the town centre.
The popular lunch spot is praised by visitors for having good staff and food “full of flavour”.
One reviewer said: “This was my first time with my partner and I enjoyed the meal I had and I loved the staff thank u for a lovely lunch.”
The third best fish and chip shop in the town is Holly Tree Fish and Chips on Pinewood, with one reviewer rating it 10 out of 10.
They said: “Great food, really enjoyed the fish and chips will be a regular thing for are Friday tea. 10 out of 10”
However not all were so keen, with some less than enticing reviews left on the TripAdvisor page.
AJK fish and chips on Johnston Street has been rated the second best in Blackburn on TripAdvisor.
One reviewer said: “Arrived in 10 minutes fish was cooked perfect well done 2 the chef will definitely be ordering from This place in future thank you for a lovely tea.”
Again, not all were so keen, with some one-star reviews left on the TripAdvisor page.
Finally, the best in Blackburn according to TripAdvisor reviews is the Old Mill Hill Chippy on New Chapel Street.
Reviews of the popular establishment give it praise, comparing it to a coastal town fish and chip shop – a high standard of praise indeed.
One review reads: “Quite simply the best fish and chips in Blackburn. The fish quality is always fresh, flaky and thick (both Cod and Haddock) and cooked to order on entry.
“Chips are always fresh and crispy.
“The staff are always friendly and welcoming and Damian loves a chat as he’s frying the fish.
“Absolute first class and on a par with many chippies on the coast. 10/10”
While another fan said: “Grew up in the 70s and 80s when every fish and chip shop seemed to be great. The Old Mill Hill Chippy is a throwback to those days. Quality ingredients well made and friendly staff make a visit here a must. The best around.”
Other notable chip shops include Perfect Plaice on Union Road, Accrington, Clacky Diner on Clayton Street, Great Harwood and Pendle Street Chippy on Pendle Street, Padiham.
Although all are highly regarded, they will mean a longer trip out to pick up your Friday tea.
