Fry Magazine has revealed its Top 50 Fish and Chip Takeaways and its Top 10 Fish and Chip Restaurants for 2018 following months of mystery dining.
The competition, which is now in its sixth year, saw over 600 shops vying for a place on the list following an unannounced mystery dining visit to each takeaway and restaurant. Over 40 aspects of the business are carefully scrutinised from the quality of fish and chips and staff presentation to front-of-house hygiene and customer service.
Shops that communicate the provenance of their products, for example where they source their fish and potatoes, could scoop extra points as could those with a social media presence, who offer disabled access and those with card payment facilities.
All the while, the food is the main focus with all outlets assessed on the flakiness of the fish, the crispness of the chips and the crunch of the batter, alongside value for money.
The pass rate was once again set very high this year with 96% required to secure a place, although an impressive five outlets scored a perfect 100%.
