The national average price for cod and chips is about £6.50. The star of BBC2’s Saving Britain’s Pubs launches Kerridge’s Fish & Chips in Harrods.

His wallet-breaking version of the dish features “market day fish,” chips, curry sauce, tartar sauce, and pea pudding.

The restaurant, which opens next Friday, will also serve 10g chips with caviar and crème frache for £32.

Kerridge, 47, said: ‘I truly believe British talent and produce are at the forefront of great cuisine.’

Other items for sale include Morecambe Bay shrimp with spiced paprika butter and treacle bread, cockle popcorn and malted beer vinegar, and fish samosas.

It comes after rival TV chef Gordon Ramsay set up a gastro burger joint in Harrods.

Kerridge added: “I’m proud to bring my take on the best seafood dishes to the most iconic department store in the world.”

The chef, who attended catering school in Cheltenham, has three eateries in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, including the double Michelin star Hand and Flowers, and a further two in London and Manchester.

Growing up in the difficult areas of Gloucester, his single mother held various jobs as he moved Kerridge and his brothers through various residential areas in the city.
