Sustainable fish supper that has more to offer than just the eco angle. Portions are hearty and the fish cooked to perfection

The traditional fish supper has taken a bit of a battering of late – concerns about overfishing have put this humble dish in danger (at least if the tabloids are to be believed). However, Fishminster’s approach is turning the tide for this most comforting of comfort foods.

All fish are caught by sustainable means. Locally grown potatoes are freshly fashioned each day into crisp, and yet still fluffy, chunky chips, and everything is fried in eco-friendly GreenPalm oil.

All the fish are cooked to flaky, soft perfection in brittle beer batter. You'll find a fantastic cod and chips for around the £6 mark, and the portions are hearty, vinegar soaked and served with a slice of lemon to put some zing into the feast.

If your feeling extra hungry, you can supplement your mains with a side of oily, crisp whitebait (£3) or an old-school portion of mushy peas with a hint of mint and butter (£1). Over and above the eco-angle, Fishminster just serves really good fish and chips that won’t break the bank – now that’s guilt-free gluttony.
