Top chippy has its eye on star fish

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & - By Nick Dor­man

A FISH and chip shop could be­come the first ever to win a Miche­lin star.

King­fisher Fish and Chips, named last month as Bri­tain’s best chippy, is now set for a visit from the din­ing bi­ble’s ex­perts.

They can choose from 13 types of fish, with a large cod and chips cost­ing £8.55.

But there is also had­dock, hake, sar­dine fish­cakes, salmon gou­jons – and even lob­ster and chips.

Craig Maw, who runs the chippy at Ply­mouth, Devon, with part­ner Nikki Mut­ton, said: “It’s about time the fish and chip in­dus­try got this level of recog­ni­tion.

“You don’t just get cod and had­dock now.”

He added: “Nei­ther of us have eaten in a Miche­lin­starred restau­rant – but we’re de­lighted Miche­lin are con­sid­er­ing us.”

Guide of­fi­cials said: “We are aware of this es­tab­lish­ment and our in­spec­tors are tak­ing it into con­sid­er­a­tion when they visit Ply­mouth.” SIX gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials were forced to apol­o­gise af­ter doz­ing off dur­ing a meet­ing on how to mo­ti­vate lazy work­ers in Hubei, China.
