Fish and chip restaurant offers champagne and quails eggs

This fish and chip restaurant could be Britain's poshest chippy - serving the nation's favourite supper, plus quails eggs pickled in champagne washed down with a £200 bottle of Dom Perignon.

The nautical-themed 'chippy' was named one of the best restaurants in the UK in 2019 and also has upmarket dishes such as bouilabaisse and king prawn gnocchi on the menu.

The chippy's drinks menu offers a full selection of red, white, and sparkling wines, including a £200 bottle of Dom Perignon champagne, as well as a list of cocktails.

But all the usual chip-shop favourites are on the menu, including battered sausage and chips, available to take away for just £5.50.

Fish and Chip shop

Malt & Anchor can be found on Castle Street in Cirencester, Glos., and as soon as customers walk through the door, it is clear that this isn't like most other chippys.

The modern decor includes a number of nautical elements, including wood panneling on the walls, ropes strung across the ceiling, and aqua-blue seating.

It offers a full takeaway menu, but diners can enjoy their favourite dishes in-house with both seating downstairs and upstairs.

The menu includes posh versions of chip shop favourites - the pickled eggs are quails eggs, preserved in champagne.

Starters include monkfish salad, smoked salmon fishcakes, and panko-coated prawn and calamari.

The main menu offers favourites such as cod, haddock, or plaice, as well as a range of pies - including venison pie, wild boar and chorizo pie, and a vegan, spiced chickpea option.

Alongside the classic ketchup, mushy pea and curry sauce side options there's garlic aioli and sweet chilli sauce - and even ham hock and leek mushy peas.

All of Malt & Anchor's fish is sustainably caught, with the cod and the haddock all cooked to order.

And there is an option to upgrade to a fancier beer batter for an extra 50p per portion.

The sausages come from local butchers Jesse Smith's and are made from locally sourced meat.

This relaxed and welcoming restaurant is perfect for a sit-down family fish and chips without the fuss of a posh restaurant.
