Food that’s off the scale
Shap Chippy is a multi award-winning fish and chip shop located in the picturesque Eden Valley, a stepping stone to the Lake District.
Since Shap Chippy first opened its doors in 2004, it’s been on quite a journey. Matt and Ashley took over Shap Chippy in July 2018, renovating and refurbishing the shop to give it some TLC and a new lease of life.
Their focus is on traditional fish and chips, alongside seasonal specials and beautiful fish dishes, all served with a side of brilliant customer service. After competing in the National Fish and Chip Awards 2020, Shap Chippy was named the UK’s second best fish and chip shop!Find us

History of fish and chips in Shap
Fish and chips has celebrated its 160th birthday in 2020, but did you know the nation’s favourite dish has been part of life in Shap for nearly a century?
The earliest record of fish and chips in Shap dates back to the 1930’s, with the first chip shop running from Manchester House – now the village newsagents – and over the last 90 years, many fish and chip shops have come and gone in Shap.
Shap Chippy first opened its doors in 2004, by the then owners James & Paula Westhorpe after taking over a pre-existing chippy that had been in the building since the 1990’s. Following several changes of ownership and a disastrous fire, Shap Chippy was overhauled and reopened in 2013 to become the real heart of Shap village.
As the current owners of Shap Chippy, Matt and Ashley Phillips bought the business in 2018 and have invested a lot of TLC into the shop. The Phillips and their team are proud to serve award-winning fish and chips for all customers from far and wide to enjoy in Shap.
5 star food hygiene rating
We’re proud to work closely with Eden District Council and even more proud to have been awarded a 5 star food hygiene rating.
