National Chip Week: the nation loves chips
National Chip Week: the nation loves chips
The event is run by the Potato Council. PMA looks at what’s being planned for National Chip Week (17 to 23 February)

Cheap as chips

At New Moon Pub Company, chef-director David Mooney will celebrate National Chip Week with plenty of eye-catching ideas at the company’s four Cheshire pubs. Customers will enjoy tin mugs of chips, mushy peas and gravy over the bar for a bargain £1, as well as portions of chips with melted Cheshire cheese or curry sauce.

Pizza-topping chips

Cardiff’s Urban Tap House, owned by Tiny Rebel Pub Company will pull out the stops with hand-cut fries served with home-made pizza toppings, sweet potato chips and chilli chips, alongside home-made beer crisps. Toppings include melted mozzarella & pepperoni, home-made chilli & sour cream, and a gooey four-cheese & herb fondue.

Chips the northern way

On 19 February, the Freemasons at Wiswell in Lancashire is bringing back its popular three-course Chippy Tea. Diners can sample the delights of the morning’s catch from Whitby, North Yorkshire, alongside chips, mushy peas & tartare sauce (£29.95).

Defending champion

Last year’s winner of the UK’s Best Pub/Restaurant Chips for National Chip Week is planning to build on its success. This year, chips at the Crown in Henlow, Bedfordshire, will be sold for the usual £3.25 with three varieties on offer. Customers can choose from chips that are triple-cooked; made with beef dripping; and made with duck fat, or the undecided can sample all three.
