THE Black Country Living Museum is getting into the chip spirit at Hobbs Fish and Chip Shop as National Chip Week celebrates its 22nd year.

Voted one of the region's top chippies, the museum houses the only fried fish shop in the UK where visitors can enjoy an authentic taste of the past while enjoying the nation's favourite dish 1930s style!

Denise George, Manager of the Hobbs Fish and Chip Shop, said: "Whether you prefer chips or fries the secret to a great tasting portion is the way it's cooked.

"We have a secret batter recipe for our fish and our chips which are cooked in beef dripping.

"Fish and chips appealed to the local 1930s community. It was cheap, it was quick and – in the context of the period – it was not without nutritional value."

She added that visitors can whet their appetite with some good old-fashioned fayre and mouth-watering fish and chips washed down with a pint of real ale from the Bottle and Glass Inn. "There's no better way to celebrate the Great British Chip!" she said.
