Soggy chips and questionably-sourced fish: not in EC1, thanks. United Chip is a new chippie on Clerkenwell Road getting rave reviews from the critics, and it’s not hard to see why.

They only use sustainable, line-caught fish for a start, then they coat it in a secret-recipe beer batter that Jay Rayner describes as “unimprovable”. The chips are made with Lincolnshire potatoes and are served as classic fat chips or sleek, sophisticated French frites. If you’re feeling posh, there’s even a soft-shell crab burger served with a ‘Bangkok mayo’, made with Thai curry paste and coriander. All the sides are made from scratch in-house, including a curry sauce made with coconut milk, and proper mushy peas. Is anyone else suddenly feeling really really hungry?
