A fish and chip shop in Devon has started selling a battered Christmas dinner, taking the famous battered Brussels sprouts one step further.
Marshall’s Fish Bar in Cullompton is serving up a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, fried in batter, for £9.95.
The festive dinner includes a chicken leg, battered sprouts, battered carrots, battered stuffing balls, battered pigs in blankets, and a gravy bomb – which is a gravy ice cube wrapped in mash potato and bread crumbs.
To finish off with something sweet, the meal also includes a battered mince pie.
The idea for the battered Christmas dinner comes courtesy of chip shop owner Andrew Marshall, 35, who estimates the Christmas meal to contain around 1,100 calories.
He said he came up with the idea because his staff had always called him out for not being festive enough around Christmas time.
He told Devon Live: ‘The reason I came up with the idea is because my staff say I am a Scrooge when it comes to Christmas so I thought why not come up with something different?
‘I started with just the battered Brussels sprouts, then the pigs in blankets, and then I thought why not serve an entire Christmas dinner.
‘The battered Christmas dinner will start with a fried chicken leg, battered sprouts, carrots and pigs in blankets.
‘We will then take an ice cube of gravy, surround it in mash potato, cover it in breadcrumbs and then fry it.
‘We will also either deep fry the stuffing or cover it in batter and fry it. And for dessert we will either try battered Christmas pudding or mince pies.’
