Ripley’s SeaFish Restaurant has been named as the top fish and chip shop in the Midlands and will now compete to be the UK’s Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop of the Year
The popular restaurant is competing to be named number one as part of the 2015 National Fish & Chip Awards, organised by the fish company Seafish.
The venue will now be pitted up against Simpsons Fish & Chips in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, to determine the overall winning shop in the next stage of the competition.
Each will be judged by an industry expert as they undergo unannounced judging visits and will be assessed on a wide range of criteria.
Next month, organisers Seafish will announce the top 10 regional shops competing for the flagship award ceremony as they bid to be named best fish and chip shop in the country.
