Fish and chips are a staple of the pub menu, but why is that? The Lock In team cast their net to find out where the tradition comes from and why it's such a popular menu item.

To explore the relationship between pubs and fish and chips, the team spoke to some great experts, including Tom Kerridge Group's Tom de Kyser, the Hand in Llanarmon's Johnathan Greatorex (no he's not from Asterix) and top author of Food of the Cods, Dan Gray.

We also spoke to the president (none-the-less) of the National Federation of Fish Fryers, Andrew Crook, Paul Winfield of the Cock and Magpie in Bewdley, Alex Moore from the British Potato Trade Association, Loren Hiller of the Marine Stewardship Council and Phil Taylor of Open Seas.
