Hundreds get 4p dinner at launch of fish and chip museum in York

Viral News | Published:

The lucky customers purchased the dish for the price it would have cost 100 years ago.

Around 1,000 portions of fish and chips were sold for just 4p in York at the opening of the National Fish & Chip Museum.

The museum is a venture by Papa’s Fish and Chips, a third-generation family business – and to celebrate opening day, punters were offered the chance to purchase the dish for the price it would have cost 100 years ago.

And the cost was not the only thing steeped in history, with the cooking equipment also from the past.

The museum features a rare coal fryer which has been dated back to the 1920s, modernised to turn the fumes from the coal into water vapour to prevent pollution.
