Few things unite the four nations as well as a good portion of crispy, battered fish served alongside a chunky plate of golden fried potato – usually doused with a healthy splash of vinegar.

And now the UK’s best chippies and fish and chip restaurants have been revealed, having been sampled by mystery diners across the country.

The Fry Awards have crowned their 2021/2022 winners – listed in alphabetical order – after eight months of trying out Britain’s best and brightest in batter.

Cumbria appeared to emerge as a headliner location for the best takeaways, with six of the premises.

Lincolnshire also held an impressive array with four of the best chippies and there was a good showing across various parts of Yorkshire. 

Establishments were assessed on cleanliness, staff knowledge, professionalism and social media presence.

In order to place on the coveted list, takeaways needed a benchmark score of 96 per cent or over of the 100 marks up for grabs.

The threshold for restaurants was 95 per cent or higher, according to Fry Magazine, which runs the awards and released the list on March 9.

Reece Head, competition organiser, said: ‘We’re so pleased to announce this year’s winners.

‘The awards recognise and celebrate the hard work, passion and dedication that these operators put into running their businesses.

‘It’s been a tough couple of years for the industry, in particular for restaurants that have had to deal with closures, but operators continued to adapt, motivate their workforce and invest in new equipment and systems that have seen them come out the other side stronger and in a better position.

Fish and chips are as an engrained in the UK’s national identity as are the shops which run them, traditionally being managed as small family businesses.

The iconic dish was one of the few foods which wasn’t rationed during World War II and according to Historic UK became so wildly popular that one shop in Bradford had to hire a doorman to handle the queues in 1931.
