The Guinness world record for the largest serving of fish and chips weighed a combined total of 45.83 Kg (101 lb 7 oz) and was achieved by The Wensleydale Heifer, David Moss and John Barley at The Wensleydale Heifer, in West Witton, UK.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest serving of chips; it weighed 448 kg (987 lb 10 oz) and was made by Adventure Island (UK), in Southend on Sea, Essex, UK.
John Phantis, who owns Fish and Chips @ Ltd, said for 'This is Local London': "It was brilliant, the fish was losing a lot of moisture when we were cooking it so it was lighter but we managed it – it was a long day!
"It tasted fantastic - even though it was really big it was a lovely piece of fish."
His wife Dawn said: "It was absolutely ginormous – we couldn't put it on the menu all the time because of all the labour that went into it, but it was fantastic."
Owners John and Dawn Phantis sourced a 200lb halibut especially for the occasion, which was cut into two 24kg and 22kg fillets.
They practised on the smaller portion in the morning and used the larger piece for their record. To qualify, their portion of chips were not allowed to weigh more than double the fish.
The halibut took approximately 50 minutes to cook and was finished by 70 hungry guests, who left donations to the couple's chosen charity, the NSPCC.
