The National Fish & Chip Awards is a UK-wide competition celebrating true excellence in the fish and chip industry. Hailing from across the country, entrants are judged on far more than just the fish and chips. Sustainability, menu innovation, catering for special dietary requirements, customer service and marketing are all part of the package of what makes an award winning fish and chip shop. These 13 winners consistently demonstrated they excel in all of these areas throughout an intensive eight month judging process, which includes multiple mystery shop visits and numerous other assessments across the respective categories.
