It wouldn't be Good Friday without fish and chips and there are plenty of chippies available to grab a meal for lunch or dinner.

The tradition stems from the Christian belief that Jesus was executed on Good Friday and sacrificed flesh for our sins, and so fish was traditionally eaten instead of meat on this day.

To this day the tradition continues for both religious and non-religious people.

Most of us have a local takeaway within a short walk or drive of our house.

But why not try a new one? Here are a few idea for a classic Easter chippie.

Bennett's, Weymouth

Bennett's Fish and Chips in Weymouth was named among the top ten in the UK in 2023 by the Times and Sunday Times.

Established in 1989 Bennett’s Fish & Chips has carved out a name for itself among tourists and locals alike.

Marlboro, Weymouth

Situated a stone's throw away from the harbour and around the corner from the beach, Marlboro is another Weymouth favourite.

The family-run restaurant is currently in its third generation of owners.

The chippie also is looking out for the environment with 100 per cent compostable food packaging and 100 per cent recyclable drinks packaging

Case and Brewer, Dorchester

Case and Brewer is a family-run Traditional Fish & Chip Shop based in Dorchester.

The family took this shop over in 1963 and has been serving Fish and Chips ever since.

The owners source fish whenever possible from sustainable stocks and always use fresh potatoes, preparing their chips daily from the shop kitchen.

Chesil Chippie, Portland

A stone's throw away from Chesil Beach, Chesil Chippie uses sustainable and locally sources ingredients for their fish and chips.

The chippie was named 'Best Newcomer' in the National Fish and Chip Awards in 2018 and has been going strong ever since.

Rachel's West Bay

If you are in West Dorset, the number one chippie in the county on Tripadvisor is Rachel's.

The kiosk at the Harbour in West Bay is open for Good Friday after Harbour wall works left the hut temporarily closed at the start of this month.
