A TOP Redditch chip shop is in the running to be named the best in the Midlands.

Winyates Chippy is one of six hoping to land the prestigious title, part of the National Fish and Chip Awards. The Midlands winner will then go on to battle for the national title at a ceremony in London next year.

Paul Williams, chief executive of competition organisers Seafish, said: “These awards have not only improved the industry standards by consistently rewarding and testing businesses, they have also raised positive awareness of the issues surrounding sustainable fishing practices and encouraged shops to implement sustainable sourcing.

“Last year we witnessed some of the highest calibre of entrants ever.

“The bar is constantly rising and we can’t wait to see the top fryers battle it out this year.”

Each of the shortlisted shops has been judged by industry experts on everything from marketing to customer service and visited by a mystery diner.
