Each year the National Fish & Chip Awards recognise talent and celebrate excellence, quality and choice offered by businesses across the fish and chip industry in a variety of award categories.
Hosted by Mark Sargeant and attended by over 600 guests, the awards ceremony for the 2020 National Fish & Chip Awards took place last night (Thursday 23rd) at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
Nominees are appraised in each of the key areas that highlight best practice against a range of criteria - with mystery dining judges attending the shops to assess a number of factors including responsible sourcing practices, customer service, staff training policies and the overall quality of the fish and chips on offer.
