Winter is not the ideal time to scarf down some fish and chips. But something about toasty weather in Montreal signifies the start of fish and chips season.

Whether you’re eating them in the traditional newspaper wrapper fashion, spell it fish ‘n chips, or fish & chips, the English fried food dish is an absolute delight.

Traditionally served with tartar sauce and lemon in beer batter, here is a handful of places around Montreal that serve up a mean fish and chip — which are still as tasty in pick-up and delivery forms.

Toss on some swim trunks, we’re going fishing.

The traditional English pub has whittled down its ordinarily extensive menu during you-know-what to a more casse-croûte vibe, including their tasty fish and chips.

It’s served with codfish, Burgundy Lion Ale batter, chips, mushy peas, and tartar sauce. And to be honest, it eats well even in delivery.
