A day close to our own heart and sole! National Fish & Chip day has been gaining momentum in Fish & Chip shops up and down the entire country. It is a day in which we can celebrate the Nation’s favourite dish and we look forward to welcoming you into our shops on the big day!


Ocean City Blues N Jazz Festival 9th to 11th August

This great musical treat of a festival returns to the Barbican for its third year running. It promises to be three days filled with the sounds of the blues and jazz and even better, again it is a free event for all to enjoy! Maybe you could come and get your fish & chip supper from us to enjoy outside, whilst listening to the music!


Plymouth Armed Forces Day Saturday 29th June

The Plymouth Armed Forces Day is always a truly proud and memorable day when we can celebrate those who are currently serving in the Armed Forces community, or have served, veterans, cadets and their families. It is a day filled with immeasureable experiences of life in the Armed Forces.  It is absolutely one not to be missed!


British Fireworks Championships 14th & 15th August

Returning for another magical and undoubtedly spectacular year are the British Fireworks Championships. Always a night to treasure and filled with so much fun and anticipation of what the show in the sky will bring! Another great excuse to have fish & chips for your supper too 😉


Plymouth Seafood Festival 14th -15th September

Returning for the 8th year running, is the wonderful Plymouth Seafood Festival. Plymouth is the first city in the world to be awarded the Fish2Fork Blue City status for its commitment to sourcing sustainable fish so this is a really important weekend for the City. Harbourside Fish & Chip is also very commited to sustainable fishing and we were in the top three at the National Fish and Chip awards this year for this. Not forgetting, we won the award for being the UK’s number 1 Healthiest Fish & Chip shop! So do pop by to see us whilst enjoying the shows of top chefs in the Cookery Threatre, and the atmosphere of the Barbican for this fine weekend!
