FOR many of us, Friday night is the designated go-to evening for a chippy tea.

And with Good Friday arguably one of the most popular days of the year to partake in the British classic, we have chosen five of your favourites chippies in town.

1. The Codfather, Manchester Road

This award-winning chippy regularly features as one of the best in the whole country, never mind in Northwich.

They also specialise in gluten-free fish and chips, which gives them even more of an edge over their rivals.

As one five-star reviewer said: "If you want the best fish and chips in Mid Cheshire this is the place to visit."

2. The Seafarer, Market Arcade

This town centre staple has been frying fish for years and has the added bonus of a dining option inside.

As one reviewer commented: "Sit down or take away. Real chips, large and succulent fish, plus super tasty spicy curry sauce."

4. The English Chip Shop, Chester Road, Castle AKA Ye Olde Chippy, AKA Castle Chippy

Unofficially it goes by many names but one thing is for certain - mouthwatering fish and chips await at this place, with one reviewer describing it quite simply as a 'good old fashioned chippy'.

5. Lucky Petes', Winnington

In a recent reader vote, this local icon received by far the most votes as your favourite.

They've been serving the battered goods here since 1984 and there will no doubt be a snaking queue out of the door on Friday evening.
