Fish and chips is a delicious meal option no matter where you are. However, when you’re in Disney World it just seems to be even better. For this reason, a visit to Yorkshire County Fish Shop in the UK pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase is a no-brainer. This teeny tiny little kiosk may seem insignificant, but trust us when we say that it is well worth a stop or two. Who knows? You may even add this quick food stop to every single trip once you’ve given it a try! Here are 8 things we know you’ll love about Yorkshire County Fish Shop.
1. Quick Stop
One of the best things about this eatery is the fact that it’s a quick grab-and-go option. Not only is it a counter-service place—meaning the service is plenty fast—it’s also a simple walk-up kiosk, meaning you don’t even have to walk inside to get your fish fix. Once you have fish in hand, you can continue wandering the World Showcase with your portable meal or find a nice place to sit.
2. Amazing View
If you do decide to sit down, try to grab one of the nearby waterside tables. These seats offer a fantastic view of the World Showcase, the people walking by, and the lovely ducks that like to hang around the area. Not only that, but these tables are also a wonderful place to watch “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth” in the evening. However, you will want to arrive plenty early if you plan to snag a seat for the show.
3. Simple Menu
The menu at this food stop is simple. In fact, it’s so simple that it only includes one entree. That’s said, we actually appreciate this fact. It makes ordering simple and ensures the line moves right along as nobody is stopping to think about what they’d like to eat. Best of all, because the restaurant is so focused on one type of food, they have gotten really good at making it, meaning you’re in for a delicious treat every time.

4. Great Prices
Because Yorkshire County Fish Shop is a quick-service location, you can count on reasonable prices when you visit. Not only that, the portion sizes are also very generous, making this meal option a decent value. This is appreciated by those who are on a tight budget, but want to enjoy delicious and authentic grub while touring the World Showcase.
5. Fun Music
If you’re looking for something to complete your British experience, look no further than the stage just a few feet away from Yorkshire County Fish Shop. This stage features the British Revolution band, a group that is tons of fun to watch and listen to. Get your meal while the band is playing and head over to watch them. You’ll be happy you did!
6. Newsprint Wrapping
When your food comes out, take a look at the paper it’s served in. You’ll notice it’s made to look like newsprint. Considering that the most authentic British fish shops serve their fried fish in newsprint, we think this detail is quite clever. Such a silly little addition may seem unnecessary to some, but we think it really completes the authentic experience.
7. Fresh Food
Yorkshire County Fish Shop serves some of the best quick-service food on Disney property. As you might imagine, this means the place is almost always busy, resulting in a rather long line, especially around lunch and dinner time. That said, the wait is well worthwhile and even a blessing in disguise. You see, a constant stream of customers means none of the food at this kiosk is ever left sitting for long, and that means fresh food for you at each and every visit.
8. Beverage Choices
Obviously, this eatery offers guests the usual basic soft drinks and bottled water, but they also have some more original and unusual offerings as well. After all, a fish shop simply must have good beer, and Yorkshire County Fish Shop certainly lives up to this expectation. They offer two types of draft beer, meaning you can even be choosy about what you drink. On top of that, they add a little more British flair by serving up Twinings tea to those who need an afternoon pick-me-up.
We are huge fans of this unassuming little fish shop, and we firmly believe you will be too. Next time you’re in the World Showcase, stop by and give it a try; you’ll likely be blown away by what you receive.
