National Fish & Chip Awards Reveal Top 60 Fish and Chip Shops…

Fish and Chip Awards 2018

The UK’s top fish and chip shops have been revealed today as part of the 30th anniversary National Fish & Chip Awards, organised by Seafish.

Following initial judging, 60 businesses have been shortlisted for the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award – one of 15 categories in the 2018 National Fish & Chip Awards. Widely recognised as the ‘Oscars’ of the fish and chip industry – these fish and chip shops represent the best in the business and will now compete to become the number one fish and chip shop in the UK.

Hailing from across the country*, the competing shops have had their frying skills put to the test as well as being judged against vigorous criteria, including menu development and innovation, sustainable sourcing policies, staff training processes, and marketing techniques.

Over the coming weeks the shops will be whittled down to a ‘Top 20’, then ‘Top 10’, before the final stage of judging in London in January 2018.

Marcus Coleman, Chief Executive at Seafish, said: “For the last 30 years, The National Fish & Chip Awards have showcased the very best of what the UK fish and chip industry has to offer, setting industry benchmarks for quality.

“This award showcases the best of the best, the local fish and chip shops that we all love to eat from. The calibre of shops in this year’s top 60 is outstanding – they are a true representation of our industry and sum up perfectly why British fish and chips are, and will always be, the best in the world. With 60 shortlisted shops to choose from, why not take a trip to your nearest contender and see how you rate it?”

Reigning champions Nikki Mutton and Craig Maw of Kingfisher Fish & Chips in Plympton, Plymouth, Devon, added: ““We were absolutely elated when we won the title of best fish and chip shop as part of the 2017 National Fish & Chip Awards. We’ve been so busy serving our brilliant customers that we’ve had to hire more than 10 new members of staff since winning the title in January.”

The winner of the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award will be announced at The National Fish & Chip Awards’ 30th anniversary ceremony in London on 25 January 2018.

Following initial judging, listed businesses have been shortlisted as a Top 60 shop in the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award, as part of the 2018 National Fish & Chip Awards.
