A popular quick service location in Epcot is the Yorkshire County Fish Shop at the United Kingdom Pavilion.
Seating is outdoors, and not all tables are sheltered well from the sun. Dining here is weather dependent, but when the weather is good it’s a lovely place to eat! There are two seating areas which can quickly hit seating capacity. Both of the seating areas overlook the water in the World Showcase, offering a pretty view. Because the seating does fill up quickly, it may be best to hit this dining location at opening or not during the peak of lunch or dinner hours.
Outdoor dining at Walt Disney World means you may have an unexpected guest at the table! Regardless of the Mary Poppins song and how cute our feathered friends can be, please do not feed the birds. They can be bold beggers!
Fish and Chips
Fish and Chips is the only entrée on the menu. Dessert choices are a Victoria Sponge Cake or fruit. Beverages include sodas, bottled water, hot Twinings Tea, and coffee. Bass Ale Draft and Harper Lager Draft are also offered. The short menu provides for easy decision making! If someone in your travel party doesn’t fancy Fish and Chips, with quick service meals you can order at a neighboring Pavilion and bring your food to one of the locations to dine.
I’ve bypassed the Yorkshire County Fish Shop because of weather many times, but I finally gave it a try. I’m glad I did!
The fish had a nice coating of batter without being greasy, and was just right with a flaky texture. The fish was served piping hot, and I had to cut it so it could cool a bit before eating it.
Inside the nearby United Kingdom table service restaurant, the Rose & Crown, homemade tartar sauce accompanies the Fish and Chips entrée. I was hoping for the homemade version at the Yorkshire County Fish Shop, but here the tartar sauce is in packets.
The chips (French Fries) were nicely done. Both ketchup and vinegar are available, and for this meal, I would heartily recommend giving the chips a splash of cider vinegar.
The Yorkshire County Fish Shop provides a flavorful meal and a waterfront setting to enjoy.
