Top 40 finalists for Fish & Chip Takeaway of the Year 2024 announced

Updated: Dec 20, 2023

The golden moment has arrived where the National Fish and Chip Awards serves up

the announcement of the UK’s Top 40 entries for the Fish and Chip Takeaway of the

Year category.

This year’s nomination process saw fish and chip businesses from across the UK

entering the awards, with the sole aim of scooping the coveted crown to be named

Britain’s best. The judging panel - made up of the industry’s ‘a-fish-onados’ - put

hopeful entrants through an extensive judging process, testing them against industry

best practice on environmental issues, product knowledge and their responsibilities

as an employer, and more.

While further judging rounds will be performed to see which businesses progress to

the next stages, the finalists for the Fish and Chip Takeaway of the Year have now

been whittled down to 40.

Andrew Crook, President at the National Federation of Fish Friers, organiser of the

awards, comments: “The calibre of entries for the National Fish and Chip Awards

2024 have been nothing short of fantastic and we are proud of all the eateries that

clearly put in huge amounts of effort to be considered for the accolade.

“Fish and Chip Takeaway of the Year is a notoriously difficult category to stand out in,

but the panel of experts had many tough decisions to make. However, we’ve

selected an exceptional shortlist that showcases the unwavering passion, dedication

and excitement that the fish and chip industry brings to British culture.”

The National Fish and Chip Awards, now in its 36th year, acknowledges and

champions businesses and individuals throughout the UK who make outstanding

contributions to foodservice to ensure the nation enjoys its fish and chips, receives

great customer service and professionals in the industry have access to

opportunities to further their growth.

Seafood from Norway is the principal sponsor for the 2024 awards, with Victoria

Braathen, UK Director of the Norwegian Seafood Council, praising the industry’s

tenacity. “The UK’s love for fish and chips knows no bounds and the awards is the

perfect occasion to celebrate the establishments that consistently deliver great fish

and chips to diners across the country. It’s an honour for the Norwegian seafood

industry to supply the UK with responsibly sourced cod and haddock and to see

these delicious proteins celebrated in the nation’s favourite dish. We wish the

finalists all the very best.”

The category winner will be announced at the awards ceremony on 28 February at

the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London.
