Fish & Chips

Good old fashioned British Fish & Chips, arguably our most famous culinary export. Few can resist the mouth-watering combination of hot and fluffy chunky chips, with juicy white fish in a crispy golden batter. The fresh fish is usually either cod or haddock and the potato varieties can change daily. Chip shops also serve anything from battered sausages, pies, fish cakes, pineapple fritters, pickled eggs and mussels among many other tasty sides.


There are plenty of decent pizza takeaway kitchens in Banbury and a couple in both Bicester and Chipping Norton. Some are dedicated pizzerias and others offer pizzas in addition to their kebab and chicken ranges, so there’s plenty of choice if you don’t feel like going for the large chain offerings.


Indian takeaways are as popular as Chinese and pizza, so you’ll be spoilt for choice especially in Banbury town, where the more popular sit-in restaurants also offer the service. There are plenty of kitchens even out in the villages of the area.
