I was in England for 3 weeks so it would have been a crime if I didn't have Fish and Chips ATLEAST once. I managed to get it just once when I spent the day at Stratford-upon-Avon at Barnaby's Fish Restaurant and Takeaway, a fish and chips touristy dining attraction-right by the avon (river).
They had different fish to chose from so I just asked them for the typical fish and they picked one out for me.
Sadly I don't remember what it was. I can say however, not being a huge fan of fish this place was not bad-I was not disappointed that this was my first/only experience. I did want to try and get to a hole in the wall place eventually but you can only do so much in 3 weeks.
They do charge extra for certain sauces but the employees at the front were really kind to me (however the ones serving the fish were not as friendly..you win some you lose some), and when I inquired about some sauce they told me to go ahead and try it for free. It was different, that's all I can really say. I stuck to the malt vinegar and ketchup.
Back to the review, portion were huge-you got your moneys worth. I was not able to finish all of my dish and while I personally wouldn't come back here (I am not a fish person) I would recommend it as a good quick bite.

For those of you who don't know upon avon means on the river. Stratford upon Avon is famous because it is Shakespeare's birthplace. It is yet another quaint town on the English countryside.
Not just his birthplace, but his resting as well, exploring the town we stumbled upon the Church he was buried.
Other touristy pictures/view of the town.
I also went to Shakespeare's mothers house- a little out side Stratford-upon-Avon.
A lovely little farm where I almost got choked out by the owl show. when he was flying, it flew straight by where I was sitting and the string attached to its foot went across my neck. Made for a very interesting story. This is the little guy that did it.
Look how short people were back then, I am about average height now. And their sleepy arrangements...my how times have changed.
This was an adorable town/birthplace full of lot's of fascinating history. If you are visiting England it should be added to your list.
