Yorkshire County Fish Shop in Epcot's UK Pavilion

The United Kingdom Pavilion isn't always considered a hot spot for it's Quick Service food, and many hungry guests walk right on through on their way to World Showcase Pavilions to treat their taste buds. Unless of course, like my husband you live in search of the perfect basket of Fish and Chips. In that case, head on over to the Yorkshire County Fish Shop for a first-class chippy.

Located in the same stretch of buildings as the Rose & Crown Pub, and across from The Tea Caddy, this oft overlooked gem is serving up a dish that's been an English classic since the 1800s. Quintessentially English, Fish and Chips was originally a pauper's meal that would fill up the tummies of the working classes. At Epcot it's delighting throngs of happy tourists looking for some quick and delicious nourishment. With a small and targeted menu the service is fast and the food is hot.

My husband, Geordon, had this to say about his prize:

The fish and chips here are delightful. The beer batter is crisp and flavorful, without being greasy or heavy. The fish that they use is light and flakey with a great flavor. It is served fresh from the fryer and has an almost creamy texture to the fish. This is, by far, the best fish and chips that I have eaten in my nearly 40 years, and I have eaten a LOT of fish and chips!

The most popular spot for fish and chips is of course the seaside, and Yorkshire County's nesting of umbrella covered tables just beyond the end of the building are the perfect spot to catch the breeze coming off of World Showcase Lagoon. The spot overlooks the waters of the lagoon that represent the English Channel with the France pavilion just beyond. After dark, the outdoor seating is a prime location to watch IllumiNations:Reflections of Earth.

We really love stopping by here every trip for e fish and chips. It's so nice and relaxing to get this and then go grab a bench by the water.

My favorite experience was when we were there for my birthday in 2009 - they apparently noticed my birthday ears...and pin...and lanyard...and button....and they wrote "happy birthday! I the bottom of my container, such that I only noticed it when I finished my food. It was a fun surprise!

We are going to Disney World in September and my husband is already talking about going to have the fish and chips. We both love them!
