The National Fish and Chip Awards 2024 has announced the UK’s Top 40 entries for the Fish and Chip Takeaway of the Year category. The Fish Bank in Sherburn-in-Elmet is one of four chippies in Yorkshire to have made the list.

Last year, the chippy battled it out with Pudsey business the Bearded Sailor for the same award, with both fish and chip shops making the top 10 shortlist but missing out on the crown. The Fish Bank has been nominated for the 2024 award alongside Mr C's in nearby Selby, Lighthouse Fisheries of Flamborough in Bridlington and Auckley Friery in Doncaster.

The National Fish and Chip Awards, now in its 36th year, champions businesses and individuals who make outstanding contributions to the industry. The judging panel put hopeful entrants through an extensive judging process, testing them against industry best practice on environmental issues, product knowledge, their responsibilities as an employer and more.

Further judging rounds will be performed to see which businesses progress to the next stages. The category winner will be announced at the awards ceremony on February 28 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London.

The awards are organised by the National Federation of Fish Friers. The Federation’s president, Andrew Crook, said: “The calibre of entries for the National Fish and Chip Awards 2024 have been nothing short of fantastic and we are proud of all the eateries that clearly put in huge amounts of effort to be considered for the accolade.

“Fish and Chip Takeaway of the Year is a notoriously difficult category to stand out in, but the panel of experts had many tough decisions to make. However, we’ve selected an exceptional shortlist that showcases the unwavering passion, dedication and excitement that the fish and chip industry brings to British culture.”
