Byline: LAURA LOVE @laura_love87

A WHITBY fish and chip restaurant has made it into the final six of a national award to find the UK's best.

Trenchers has been named one of the best fish and chip restaurants in the country as part of the National Fish and Chip Awards.

Whittled down from an earlier judging round, the restaurant will now compete against five other businesses to clinch the title of the 'UK's best fish and chip restaurant.'.

The others include businesses in Norfolk, London, Devon, and Dorset.

To reach this stage of the competition, the finalists have been judged by industry experts across a wide variety of criteria including responsible sourcing policies, diversification and innovation, and restaurant facilities and appearance.

They have also received mystery shopping assessments to evaluate customer service levels and the quality of the fish and chips on offer.

Over the coming weeks, the shortlisted restaurants will face additional in-depth judging audits to assess both the front and back-of-house operations. This final stage of competition judging will determine the overall national winner who will be announced at the 30th anniversary awards ceremony.

Marcus Coleman, chief executive at Seafish, said: "Fish and chips have always been one of Britain's best loved dishes. With changing trends, it's encouraging to see that our long-standing tradition has evolved with the rise of the fish and chip dining experience.

"With more and more people opting to dine out, this award category has never been so relevant. As many businesses across the country vie to be crowned the UK's best fish and chip restaurant, the competition is well and truly on as our finalists will now compete at the highest level to claim the number one spot.

"Congratulations to our top five on making it to this final stage - they are the reason why the UK is known as the home of the world's best fish and chips."

The winner of the Fish and Chip Restaurant of the Year Award will be announced at The National Fish and Chip Awards' 30th anniversary ceremony in London in January.
