The race for first plaice is on with the best fish and chip shops in the country revealed today. The top 10 finalists in the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award will now batter it out to be named the champion of the 2019 National Fish & Chip Awards.

Organised by Seafish, the annual National Fish & Chip Awards is a UK wide competition celebrating true excellence in the fish and chip industry. Each of the top 10 will now fry high to become the best shop in the UK.

Determining who makes it in to the top 10 Fish and Chip shops isn’t as simple as tasting the delicious fish and chips. Each shop is also assessed on sustainable sourcing, menu innovation, marketing, staff training, marketing and customer service.

The shops now head in to a final stage of judging in London next January before the overall winner is crowned.

Marcus Coleman, Chief Executive Officer at Seafish, said: “It’s not possible to reach this stage of the competition without displaying true quality in every aspect of running a fish and chip business, so these 10 shops should be extremely proud of what they’ve achieved so far. It’s that commitment to quality in all areas that make The National Fish & Chip Awards such a great experience for all involved.

“We’ve been lucky to see an incredibly high standard of entrant since we started this competition 31 years ago, and we can say with certainty that this year’s top 10 display just as much talent and passion for the industry as any winner we’ve seen to date. Best of luck to everyone in the final.”

The winner of the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award will be announced at The National Fish & Chip Awards’ 31st anniversary ceremony in London on 24 January 2019.
