Enjoy an authentic taste of the past at Black Country Museum. The Black Country Living Museum is getting into the chip spirit at Hobbs Fish and Chip Shop as National Chip Week celebrates its 22nd year. Voted one of the region's top chippies, the museum houses the only fried fish shop in the UK where visitors can enjoy an authentic taste of the past whilst enjoying the nation’s favourite dish 1930s style!
Denise George, Manager of the Hobbs Fish and Chip Shop said: “Whether you prefer chips or fries the secret to a great tasting portion is the way it's cooked. We have a secret batter recipe for our fish and our chips are cooked in beef dripping.
“Fish and chips appealed to the local 1930’s community. It was cheap, it was quick and – in the context of the period – it was not without nutritional value.”
Visitors are whetting their appetite with some good old-fashioned fayre and mouth-watering fish and chips washed down with a pint of real ale from the Bottle and Glass Inn – there's no better way to celebrate the Great British Chip!"
Black Country Living Museum is open every day over February Half Term until Sunday 23 February with a host of fun family activities recreating traditional washday games and craft fun. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in with laundry day deeds, just remember to scrub your hands clean ready for your lunchtime fish and chips!
