    20. Wackers, York

    Trip Advisor/

    "York has Whackers: the world’s biggest fish and chip shop apparently and also is in Scarborough. They cook chips in beef fat but you can have veg oil chips instead. I can have a big chip dinner (big chip portions too), a cup of tea and a sweet for under a tenner. It’s where I always took my kids for a special meal out, feeding the whole family for under £20." – jennyb27

    21. Marco's Cafè, Hebden Bridge

    Marco's Pizza

    "I’m holidaying in Hebden Bridge, where Marco’s Pizza has authentic Italian pizza. The margherita drizzled with garlic oil is just £5 and huge — a perfect meal for one after a long walk, or enough for two to share. Not worth buying a frozen one at that price!" – raec4

    22. Crawshaws, Huddersfield

    23. Eat a Pitta, Bristol

    Eat a Pitta

    "Amazing falafel, houmous and salad wrap or box for around £5!" –  samanthaf4c2010b04
