Ripley’s SeaFish Restaurant is one of six chip shops
hoping to be crowned the best in the Midlands.
The eaterie on Cromford Road has been shortlisted for the title of SeaFish Regional Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop of the Year.
To be shortlisted the chip shop has had to serve up top quality food.
The eaterie was judged by industry experts from the SeaFish food company, which is not connected to the restaurant.
The six shortlisted shops will be whittled down to two in the next stage of the competition in September.
In October, the regional winner will be announced and they will compete against nine other region winners throughout the UK, to be crowned the country’s top choice for the popular takeaway treat.
Ripley owners Panny Apostolou and Andras Andra said they were thrilled at being shortlisted. Mr Andras said: “It’s great for us to have made it this far. Our dream would to be crowned the best chip shop in the Midlands – maybe even the country.”
