Chippy in the run­ning for an­other award

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

IT is not ev­ery day a Sur­rey chip shop is short­listed for a 2018 Na­tional Fish and Chip award.

Sea­fare, in Wor­ples­don Road, Guild­ford, is one of six in Lon­don and the South East to be nom­i­nated for Fish and Chip Shop of the Year in the awards or­gan­ised by Seafish.

The chip shop is no stranger to suc­cess, hav­ing won the ti­tle of finest fish and chips in the South East and Lon­don in 2011.

It faces stiff com­pe­ti­tion from Rams­gate’s New­ing­ton Fish Bar, Pa­pas Barn in Dit­ton, Brock­ley’s Rock, Hen­ley’s of Wiven­hoe and Ol­ley’s Fish Ex­pe­ri­ence in Lon­don.

Next month, the nom­i­nated 60 shops will be whit­tled down to a top 10 be­fore the fi­nal stage of judg­ing takes place in Lon­don in Jan­uary.

Mar­cus Cole­man, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Seafish, said: “This award show­cases the best of the best – the lo­cal fish and chip shops that we all love to eat from.

“The cal­i­bre in this year’s top 60 is out­stand­ing.

“They are a true rep­re­sen­ta­tion of our in­dus­try and sum up per­fectly why Bri­tish fish and chips are, and al­ways will be, the best in the world.

“With 60 short­listed shops to choose from, why not take a trip to your near­est con­tender and see how you rate it?”

Last year’s cham­pi­ons, Nikki Mut­ton and Craig Maw of King­fisher Fish and Chips in Plymp­ton, said: “We’ve been so busy serv­ing our bril­liant cus­tomers, we’ve had to hire more than 10 new mem­bers of staff since win­ing the ti­tle in Jan­uary.”
