A British summer is not just about barbecues and catching rays
between downpours. It’s also time for some fresh flavours, and
what better than good old fish and chips?
& Chips harks back to the traditional British fish and chip
restaurants of the past, blending that nostalgia with a modern
European menu influence.

What could be more traditional for a Sunday lunch on the North Norfolk coast than Fish & Chips? With this philosophy in mind, we ventured to newly opened Eric’s Fish & Chips at Drove Orchards in Thornham last Sunday.
Eric’s Fish & Chips is the new restaurant from highly-regarded Titchwell Manor Chef, Eric Snaith.
Eric Snaith, the chef-patron of Norfolk's Titchwell Manor hotel, has open a standalone fish & chip restaurant called Eric's Fish & Chips, offering a modern take on the British Classic. The design by Shaun Clarkson ID, aims for Industrial meets maritime, with stripped-back lighting, a timber stacked counter with bold yellowtop and weatherd wooden touches among a colour palette of sea greens, deep navy, white accents of sunshine yellow.
From Eric Snaith (chef/patron of Norfolk's “wonderful” Titchwell Manor) comes this standalone fish and chip restaurant. Eric's uses local tatties for the chips (cooked in beef dripping) and only seasonal, sustainable MSC-certified fish - beer-battered to ensure that authentic traditional flavour. Other mains include mackerel with buttermilk, beetroot & sorrell and halloumi & spinach arancini.
North Norfolk's sea air works up one's appetite like nowhere else. New, for summer 2015, is this chirpy chippy on the A149 coast road at Drove Orchards near Thornham. With its colourful tiled walls, bar stools and rustic wooden seating, you will want to sit in, over grilled hake or grey mullet, scallops with lime, beer-battered haddock with black garlic aioli or spicy buffalo sauce. It's a takeaway outpost of Titchwell Manor, Eric Snaith the hotel's head chef. Which explains why you can also sip brut rose here with your trad fish fry..
