While in Eastbourne this week, I was waiting for the OH sitting in the lounge and picked up a Sun newspaper which had been left, and found this article which I thought some might find amusing.
Bechdon - the Welsh and scousers will have their chips in one of these.

Fritters - any food coated in batter.Could be potato, apple, pineapple or even spam.
Fish Bits - exactly what it sounds like....the left over bits of fish.
Pattie - sausagemeat with potato on top, cooked in batter, found in Birmingham.
Rissole - rissoles sold in chip shops in South Wales and the North East of England contain meat, in Yorkshire these are fishcakes containing a large slice of potatoe.
Scallops - Slice of potatoe cooked in batter. Found in Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield.

:D:DLove the Chiptionary, although I must admit to never seeing some of the Scottish entries in our local chippy.
Chip Sauce - Vineger & brown sauce is most of an East of Scotland delicacy not as popular here in the West.
Sottonsauce - again, mostly East coast. 'Saulnvingr', that's what you're more likely to be offered round here.
Snozzup - Never heard of it. Again, could be regional. Just a plain sausage supper hereabouts.
Fish Lot - We have our mushy peas in a separate carton, definitely never in the the fish&chips!
XXSupper - we'd just call that a greedy pig's dinner.
I'm sure other Scots will contribute and I'll stand corrected if I'm wrong.

Agree with you MarieC never heard of a lot of the Scottish entries. the ones I have are as you say local to the East Coast. I enjoy 'eating in' a fish restaurant and having a 'fish tea'.........but for me without the tea, I don't like tea! a fish tea is a plate of fish, chips, peas (before they get mushy), bread and butter and a pot of tea. yummmm :D
we also buy a 'poke' of chips. we call potatoes totties. we also call fish and chips, pie and chips etc 'suppers'.
the East coast have salt and sauce, we on the west coast prefer sailt and vinegar at the chippy.
