Nippers British Fish and Chips Food Truck
Disclosure: Our family received a complimentary meal in exchange for this review. All opinions are our own.
We love fish and chips.
Last year, our family lived in the U.K. for 5 months, and authentic British fish and chips became part of our regular routine. Having grown up in the U.K., my husband is fish and chips aficionado.
So, when we were asked to go test out Nippers, British Fish and Chips, we were up for the challenge.
“Nippers is a fish and chip truck which will be in the New Minas area mostly also attending many events throughout the summer. Come by for you’re British Fish and Chips” ~ Facebook Page
Nippers is operated by Ralph and Kathryn Davies who have moved to the Valley from NorthEast England. Ralph even certified by the National Federation for Fish Friers in the U.K.! Yes, that’s a thing!
These fish and chips are the real deal!

Besides fish and chips, Nippers has a lot of other great traditional British food on the menu.
Now available most days, homemade sausage rolls or fishcakes. Served with chips and either baked beans or mushy peas.
We went for the traditional haddock and chips with a side of curry sauce and mushy peas. Served with malt vinegar and tartar sauce, all wrapped in paper. The real way.
