Proper Fish & Chips
Imagine our delight when we discovered a 'local' (less than ten miles away) chip shop that ALWAYS supplies gluten free F&C! Whenever they are open, The Famous Mr Chips in Rugby sells gluten free fish and chips. Not the first Monday of the month or just after the fat/oil/fryer has been cleaned. No complex timetable to remember, no relief if we've got it right or dismay if we've missed the 'day'. Fish and Chips when WE choose.
The chip shop is at 21 Lower Hillmorton Road, Rugby, Warwickshire, CV21 3ST. Sadly, there's no website but it opens lunchtime and evenings Wednesday to Saturday. When you order gluten free, it's treated as a special order (usually Mr Chips is in charge) and the fish is wrapped in foil, garnished with a lemon wedge and a sachet of gluten free tartare sauce is included.
If you google a map for CV21 3ST, and zoom in a bit The Famous Mr Chips is marked on it. Barely 10 minutes West of Junction 18 of the M1... worth a diversion if you're looking for gluten free F&C goodies on a journey North/South.
