From the classic battered cod and chips to vegan ‘fish’ and deep fried gherkins, everybody loves a good fish and chip shop. We have picked 10 of the best places for fish and chips by the sea in Kent

1. Shakey Shakey Fish Bar, Ramsgate

What could be better than a finely battered fish with chunky chips and homemade tartar sauce? Visit Shakey Shakey Fish Bar in Ramsgate for all the chip shop favourites you’d expect plus plenty of gluten free and vegan options every Monday and Tuesday.

2. Aqua 43, Broadstairs

With everything sourced as locally as possible at Aqua 43 in Broadstairs, you can guarantee a tempting plate of fresh fish and chips. Fish is sourced from a nearby fishmonger, potatoes from a local farm and eggs come as close as it gets – the owners’ hens. Aqua 43 serves a great pie too.

3. Ossie’s Best Fish and Chips, Whitstable

Ossie’s Best Fish and Chips is just a stones throw from Whitstable sea front and it has received high accolades from customers and the press, with a mention in the Sunday Times’ top restaurants for under £20 a head. Fresh fish is battered beautifully with some customers calling it “the best batter I have had”. Grab a bag of hot chips to go and head out to explore this pretty seaside town.

4. The Smokehouse, Folkestone

With a unique twist on the traditional chippy, the Smokehouse along the Folkestone seafront, serves battered cod, haddock or Loch Duart salmon alongside beef dripping chips. If you don’t fancy fish, order buttermilk fried chicken legs with a black rice, quinoa and ginger salad. Starters include salt and pepper squid and mussel popcorn - all perfect when enjoyed by the sea.

5. Papas Fish and Chips, various locations

Having started life in Canterbury, Papas Fish and Chips has branched out across the country with Kent sites including Sandwich, Folkestone, Margate, Gravesend and Rochester. With fresh fish and carefully selected potatoes to make the chips, you are guaranteed a fresh plate of Britain’s favourite meal whichever shop you visit.

6. Buoy and Oyster, Margate

One of our top seafood restaurants has all types of treats from the sea, but also serves a killer plate of fish and chips. Buoy and Oyster in Margate uses fresh haddock in a homemade beer batter served up alongside chunky chips, mushy peas, tartar sauce and some lemon to squeeze over. Devour a platter of oysters with Tabasco sauce and enjoy the views over Margate’s beaches whilst you dine.

7. Beach 48, Dymchurch

In a colourful building along the seafront in Dymchurch is Beach 48; fish with a crispy batter and chips cut chunky, perfect to takeaway and stroll along the seafront or sit in the sand and while an hour away. Just make sure you wait for it to go down before swimming!

You can order a glass of wine or beer to go with your generous portion of fish and chips too.

9. Walmer Fish & Chips, Walmer

There’s crispy battered fish and chunky chips made from fresh potatoes at Walmer Fish & Chips on the beachside Strand. Vegetarians will have lots to choose from too with a veggie sausage and burger on the menu alongside extras including onion rings, pickles, mushy peas, gravy and curry sauce. Indulge in a large portion of chips to share and enjoy a stroll along the beach.

10. Reliance Fish Restaurant, Gravesend
