Big news – we’ve just been named the best Independent Takeaway Fish & Chip Shop in England!
After coming out on top in England, Simpsons also took a strong 2nd place in the UK-wide competition for Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop of the Year award. We were only just pipped to the post, and came close runners-up to Frankie’s Fish & Chips in Brae, Shetland, Scotland.
We’re also proud to win the Field to Fryer Award, award for our passion for potatoes in categories like seasonal selection, storage facilities, preparation, and frying process.
The 2015 National Fish & Chip Awards involved a rigorous judging process, which has taken place over the last few months. This climaxed with a ‘Dragons Den’ style presentation to industry experts including representatives from Seafish, the Potato Council, The Caterer, MSC and the Craft Guild of Chefs and more.
We attended a glamorous award ceremony held at the Lancaster London Hotel, hosted by Radio 2 Presenter, Nigel Barden. The whole Simpson family were there to enjoy the prestigious ceremony, along with members of the Simpsons team.
Our Simpsons Co-Founder James said: “These awards are the Oscars of the fish and chip world and we’re absolutely over the moon to be recognised amongst such great company. The evening was such a fantastic night out and a great chance to ditch the hairnets and headscarves and put on our best clobber – although the signature red lipstick was still firmly in place for the girls!
Each year we strive to better ourselves and bring our customers only the very best, so for us we cannot thank them enough for their continued support – without them we wouldn’t be here!”
Here’s to another great year of frying at the award-winning Simpsons!
