An established fish and chip business in Exmouth has recently opened its second takeaway in Cranbrook.
The Proper Fish & Chips Co can be found at 153, Younghayes Road in the new town.
The company says: “The aim at Proper is simple, to offer our customers first class fish and chips cooked the traditional way.
“We are passionate about championing local produce and also about our local environment.”
The Proper Fish & Chips Co’s pies, potatoes and burgers – to name a few – are all locally sourced and their packaging is 100 percent biodegradable and is made from plants.
In fact they have cut their plastic output to zero and they don’t sell any products that contain plastic. They also offer a gluten-free menu alongside the regular menu which is available seven days a week.
The team at Proper have adapted their business during the pandemic and customers are now able to order via a click and collect system to avoid queueing and waiting. They are currently offering a 15 per cent discount on customers’ first online order by using the discount code HELLOPROPER. You can order via the company’s website at this address:
Orders are also accepted from walk-in customers. Those fish and chip lovers who do want to pop into the shop are asked to wear a face covering when in store and to wait for their order outside. Umbrellas are provided if it’s raining.
Fish and chips first appeared in the UK in the 1860s, and by 1910, there were more than 25,000 fish and chip shops across the UK. By the 1930s there were over 35,000 shops. The British Government safeguarded the supply of fish and chips during the First World War and the Second World War and it was one of the few foods in the UK that was not made subject to rationing during either of the wars. Wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchil referred to the combination of fish and chips as “the good companions”.
You can find their award-winning fish and chips at Exeter Road in Exmouth and Younghayes Road in Cranbrook.
