Hill Top chippy is now among best in coun­try

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

HILL Top Fish­eries in Slaith­waite has been named one of the UK’s 50 best fish and chip take­aways.

The Royd Street chippy was the only one in the town to make the list, com­piled by trade pub­li­ca­tion Fry Mag­a­zine.

To make the top 50, Hill Top Vil­lage Fish­eries had to im­press a mys­tery diner who marked the chippy on over 40 as­pects of their busi­ness, from the qual­ity of the food and cus­tomer ser­vice to clean­li­ness and value for money.

With the pass mark set high at 96%, Hill Top Vil­lage Fish­eries scored 97% with the mys­tery diner prais­ing the food and the friendly staff.

Hill Top Vil­lage Fish­eries owner Oliver Mor­ton said: “I am grate­ful to have made the top 50 list and couldn’t have done this with­out the sup­port from our lo­cal cus­tomers.

“Me and my team put a lot of work into the shop and it’s great that this has been recog­nised by Fry Mag­a­zine.

“I am in­cred­i­bly proud of what we have achieved at Hill Top Vil­lage Fish­eries and hope to see this con­tin­ued each year.”

Reece Head, com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­iser, said: “Once again we’ve got a fan­tas­tic list of fish and chip shops span­ning the breadth of the UK who put their all into their busi­ness, their staff and their food.

“With mar­gins get­ting tighter for fish and chip shop own­ers and more com­pe­ti­tion than ever be­fore, it’s a tough busi­ness to be in these days, but these shops are go­ing out there, in­vest­ing in their busi­ness, mo­ti­vat­ing their staff, stay­ing up-to-date with the lat­est food trends and em­brac­ing tech­nol­ogy.

“But more im­por­tantly, they are giv­ing their cus­tomers what they want - top qual­ity food and great cus­tomer ser­vice in at­trac­tive, invit­ing sur­round­ings.

“And that’s the key to a suc­cess­ful busi­ness and a suc­cess­ful fu­ture for fish and chips.” Rhi­an­non Bat­ley, Oliver Mor­ton and Ni­chola Mear with a sam­ple of their qual­ity fish and chips as Hill Top Vil­lage Fish­eries of Slaith­waite, has been voted in the top 50 na­tion­ally
