The Fish Works in Largs has been heralded as one of Scotland’s best fish and chip shops.

The seafront takeaway features in the UK Top 60 shortlist for the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award, the flagship category in the 2020 National Fish & Chip Awards.

It was one of seven of the eateries from Scotland which featured in the survey organised by Seafish, the public body that supports the £10bn UK seafood industry.

The National Fish & Chip Awards are the UK’s premier awards for fish and chips.

The awards recognise outstanding businesses across the country that are serving incredible fish and chips and providing excellent customer service.

Shortlisted businesses have gone above and beyond to secure their place in the shortlist stage of the competition and showcase the nation’s favourite takeaway dish.

It’s not just about food quality, there are a wide variety of additional factors that make these businesses outstanding, including excellence in the sustainable sourcing of key ingredients and staff training and development for young people.

Creation of innovative menu options for those with allergies and dietary requirements is another key consideration.

Marcus Coleman, Chief Executive Officer at Seafish, said: “These Top 60 takeaways have demonstrated real commitment to quality in all areas and worked tirelessly to earn their place on this list."

The winner of the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award will be announced at The National Fish & Chip Awards’ 32nd anniversary ceremony in London on 23 January 2020.
