Fish and Chip shop Awards 2018

Best Fish and Chip shops in the UK revealed

Brits apparently consume an approximately 167 million servings of the Fish and Chips each year and it’s fair to say that most people have their own favourite chippy. It has been announced that a Yorkshire-based fish and chip shop has been announced as the best in the UK.

While you might think your local spot dishes out the very best fresh battered fish or the crispiest chips, the National Fish & Chip Awards has officially announced the very best restaurant in the UK.

The prestigeous award in its 30th year has this year presented the award to upon Millers Fish & Chips in Haxby, York – a fourth-generation family business with a 77-year history.

Nick Miller who runs the business with his father David said,“We brought it home for Haxby!” and “I can’t believe we’re the UK’s best fish and chip shop – words can’t describe how this feels.”

There were thousands of other notable entrants to the competition and fierce competition to the top spot, but the father and son duo endured 7 months of a gruelling judging process. The process includes everything from mystery shoppers to detailed audits and interviews with a 15-strong specialist industry judging panel.

Nick also added, “We entered the competition for the first time last year, and were so proud to get to the final, but to go all the way this time and scoop the ‘Oscar’ of the fish and chip world is truly amazing, We bring the tradition associated with great British fish and chips together with a new, innovative approach. This really does mean everything to us, and we’re so proud of our ourselves, our staff and our business.”.

Runners up to the prestigious accolade include Burton Road Chippy, Lincoln, Lincolnshire which took seconds place and Harbourside Fish & Chips, Plymouth, Devon which came third. Henley’s of Wivenhoe in Colchester, Essex was announced as the best fish and chip shop on London and the South East.
