Yorkshire’s top two chippies you’d probably never heard of

TWO YORKSHIRE chippies have been named among the top 12 “off the beaten track” fish fryers in the UK. And despite the proliferation of famous fisheries on the coast, both of these are inland.

Two Steps Fish and Chips

Two Steps Fish and Chips on Sharrowvale Road, Sheffield, and Thompsons Fish and Chips Restaurant and Takeaway in York made it into the online guide, Bigger Fish to Fry: 12 Fish & Chip Shops You Need to Try.

The report, published by HolidayLettings, part of TripAdvisor, says of Two Steps: "Since it appeared in 1865, this fish and chip shop has become a local Sheffield landmark. Even the name developed as a way for locals to distinguish the shop from its rival across the road, by referring to the two steps up to the door.”
