Is your favourite chippy on the list?

TAGS:

Sometimes we can’t help thinking that these sorts of lists are produced solely to provoke outrage. What else could explain a list of the greatest fish and chip shops in Britain without a single nominee from Sussex or Cornwall?

The 20 chosen chippies are the Top 20 shortlisted for the 2018  Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award, the top prize available in what will be the 30th National Fish & Chip Awards. There has apparently been ‘extensive judging’ thus far, with more scrutiny to come before the list is whittled down to 10 – the winner will be announced on 25 January.

You can see the full process and criteria at the official website, but let’s get to the bit you really want to know about: the fish and chip shops themselves. There are a couple of finalists for each of 10 regions:
