A PLATE of cod and chips at Harrods will set you back £35. A helping of one of Britain’s best-loved dishes at celebrity chef Tom Kerridge’s new ‘gourmet’ chippe in the famous store will cost that, compared to the national average price of around £6.50.

I would bet a pound of haddock that even at that staggering price they won’t be as good as Yorkshire fish and chips. As a regular visitor to London, I would say that no matter what you pay - and it is usually steep - or where you buy them, they are never as nice as fish and chips from Yorkshire.
