All hail the local chippy – as fish and chips has been voted the nation’s favourite British dish, according to a new survey.

A poll of 2,000 people in the UK revealed the traditional seaside fare to beat the roast dinner, Victoria Sponge and the Cornish Pasty to come top of Britain’s favourite meals and snacks.

Bacon butties, baked beans and Shepherd’s Pie also ranked highly in the list of 40, along with buttered crumpets and a cream tea.

Sykes Cottages commissioned the survey for the ‘Discover Cornwall’ food and drink guide.
