    Thanks for the clarification, it was definitely malt vinegar that the fry stand used

    I use apple cider vinegar as a substitute when making fries myself

    My dad was stationed outside of London when I was a lad. I was exposed to a lot of the lifestyle trends there in the 70's till we moved to the US.

    I remember the fish n chips served with vinegar, I cant recall lemon being in the bag/paper it came in.

    But one of my fave things I recall from London that time era was the 99 ice cream! But that's for another thread!

    Vinegar is king. I've seen lemon offered in addition to vinegar, but honestly why? Malt vinegar and salt all over those greasy, buttery chips after a night sinking pints. And an early grave, probably, but life is for living, right?

    A good dark malt is delicious on the the fish and not bad on the chips.
    When at home my daughter often makes potato wedges lightly battered with beer batter, dusted with salt and vinegar powder. Then in a separate dish a couple teaspoons of yellow mustard and dark malt vinegar As a dip for the chips. It is delicious.
    We have had London Pub Vinegar many times, but the store is kinda hit and miss on carrying it.

    Cool. Get some malt V. Even the cheap, grocery store stuff is worth having on hand.

    Sweet Christmas, that sounds fantastic. I would give my left arm to try that. Reminds me of a joke. "Man, I'd give me left arm to be ambidextrous!". No really that does sound amazing, might have to apply your idea to air fried potato wedges.

    I'm going to say ketchup for the fries/chips and malt vinegar on the fish, although I grew up with lemon on Friday night dinners in New England.I could go either way.Don't care for the tartar stuff.

    Malt vinegar all the way.
    but it's hard to find around here and if one does, it's pretty expensive.

    Lemon for grilled fish but it must be vinegar for battered fish as per proper fish and chips. Worcestershire Sauce is alllowable as an alternative to vinegar.

    Malt vinegar all the way here too. Can't put enough on. I often wonder if I order F&Cs just for the malt vinegar. Restaurants up here look at you in a quizzical fashion when I ask for malt vinegar. Very unusual for any restaurant to have it even though they make good fish and chips. Along with a pint of Guinness stout (or two;)) makes for a perfect meal.

    In the dark North of the UK it's pretty common for fish and chips to be served covered in brown gravy.

    It's wrong on so many levels. As are mushy peas.

    How is this even a question? Sarsons malt vinegar on chips, and by association on whatever you're having with your chips.
    Except maybe a battered sausage/saveloy where some red or brown sauce is ok.

    Salt and Vinegar and battered fish with a side of mushy peas or ‘chip shop curry’... white bread and butter is optional if eating in.

    A lemon segment to squeeze on the fish can ONLY only be accepted if you are being served at table in a fish and chip restaurant.

    The restaurant must also provide tea in a metal pot with an extra pot of hot water so I can get at least 4 cups of tea... and a small jug of real milk. Tea bags in cups and plastic UHT milk servings are an instant zero points and will result in no return visit.

    i cannot believe the things I am reading! Heathens!
