These are the 50 top chippies in the UK according to Fry Magazine

The UK’s 50 top chip shops have been named by Fry Magazine after ‘mystery shopper’ visits across the UK.

The Fry Awards 2021 announced the 50 Best Fish and Chip Takeaways and the 10 Best Mobile Units.

And while there’s none from Birmingham and the Black Country, the list does feature some from the Midlands including Shropshire and Herefordshire.

If you think your local chippy serves some of the best fish and chips in Britain and deserves to be recognised, be sure to let us know in the comments.

Fry Magazine said: “Following an unannounced mystery dining visit, shops and mobile units were marked on over 40 aspects of their business, from the quality of the food and customer service to their social media presence and their Covid safe practices.

“Once again, the food remained the main focus, with all outlets assessed on the flakiness of the fish, the crispness of the chips and the crunch of the batter, alongside value for money.

“And even despite the challenges and restrictions posed by Covid, entrants didn’t let standards slip with the benchmark to pass set at 97 per cent for takeaways and 92 per cent for mobiles – the highest in the awards’ history.

Reece Head, competition organiser, said: “Without doubt, the last 12 months have been tough for fish and chip operators and many will not have dealt with this level of crisis management before.

“Allowed to operate during the pandemic, there was a lot they had to implement in a very short space of time to operate in a Covid safe manner. Many takeaways had to flip their businesses to click and collect and delivery, serve at the door, introduce card payments and work in much smaller teams. Likewise, mobile units introduced pre-orders and added new routes and additional vans to keep the nation fed.

“During a time of uncertainty, these operators have helped maintain a sense of normality. They’ve been at the heart of their communities, with a smile on their faces and hot food in their hands.

“And the fact that we’ve had our highest pass mark ever is testament to their hard work and dedication, and we would like to congratulate each and every one.”
