Millers Fish & Chips in Haxby, North Yorkshire has been revealed today as the top fish and chip shop in our region as part of the 30th anniversary National Fish & Chip Awards, organised by Seafish.

Following rigorous judging, 10 businesses have been shortlisted for the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award, one of 15 categories in the 2018 National Fish & Chip Awards. The 10 shops, representing the best of the best of British fish and chips, will now compete in a final judging stage for this top accolade and aim to be crowned number one in the UK.

Nick Miller, who runs Millers Fish & Chips with his father, David, said:

“We are absolutely ecstatic and very proud to have been shortlisted once again in the awards, after making the top 3 last year. The standard of entries is always so high, so we want to thank all of our hardworking team for their support, dedication and commitment.

“We entered the competition for the first time last year, and were very proud to get to the final. We know from that experience that the competition really does bring together the very best of our industry, with a judging process that explores every aspect of the business, so to have made it this far once again feels amazing. We’re so grateful to our customers and community here in Haxby, who have got behind us wholeheartedly for the second year running, their support is just incredible.

“Fish and chips have been in our family for generations. We all work in the shop, and we’re committed to upholding the highest standards in sustainability, quality and customer service. We are certainly in good company with the shops that have made it through with us, and wish all of our competitors the very best.”

To make this final stage of the competition, Millers Fish & Chips has had their frying skills put to the test as well as being assessed against a variety of judging criteria, including menu development and innovation, sustainable sourcing policies, staff training processes and marketing activity. Judges also made unannounced visits to shop premises to sample the fish and chips and level of customer service on offer and undertake a full business audit.
