Every day is Fish & Chips day - a great British tradition. We know that they've been sold at The Town Fryer in Hitchin's Hermitage Road since at least the 1970s, because many of us have memories of enjoying tasty treats in our youth.
Now owned by Alan Doggett and Andy Lemm, The Town Fryer serves up traditional food, with tea, coffee and cold drinks to wash it all down, as well as vegetarian options such as pies, pasties and a veggie burger.
All the fish is from sustainable sources and the potatoes peeled and chipped on the premises - as part of a healthy diet, it's hard to beat, especially on a Friday night.
With The Town Fryer, you don't have to worry about nasty cooking oils. They use the market leading all-vegetable frying fat Frymax: free of additives and hydrogenated oils.
Alan and Andy are both local men (Andy went to Hitchin Boys' School and has worked all around the town) and they take pride in employing local staff and being an active part of the community.
With a newly-renovated shop and Hermitage Road becoming a bustling part of the town once more, it's definitely time to take a walk up to The Town Fryer.
And don't forget to check out our latest offer - too good to miss, especially if you can't get away from your desk and really fancy fish and chips.
