In conjunction with next year’s National Fish & Chip Awards, businesses have been judged on a number of factors that cover a range of the competition’s criteria to source out the UK’s best fish and chips shop.

 

The guidelines include finding those with the most innovative approaches to running a new fish and chip shop, and approaches to sustainable and responsible sourcing of fish and other ingredients. Additionally, the competition’s judges will also be assessing promotional activity undertaken.

Eric’s Fish and Chips in Thornham - not far from where Holidays for AllSeasons family holidays, UK is located - has been named among those shortlisted businesses who will now be subjected to the next stage in the contest. This will include mystery shopping assessments by industry experts, with the UK’s top three finalists then competing to be crowned as the best newcomer at the awards ceremony, which will take place in London on January 26th, 2017.

The competition is open to independent fish and chip businesses that have only been operating since October 1, 2014.
