MSC certification for Tetbury chippy



A Gloucestershire fish and chip restaurant which opened just two years ago has achieved MSC certification for its cod and haddock.


Stargazy Fish Bar in the Cotswold town of Tetbury can now use the MSC ‘blue tick’ label on its menus, assuring customers that the fish they serve has been responsibly caught using sustainable methods.

The restaurant, which in January was named one of the top three newcomers in the National Fish and Chip Awards, is owned by Tanya Kelly who, with her family, also owns the adjoining hotel-restaurant, The Priory Inn. Tanya comments: “It is very much part of our ethos as restaurant owners to be as environmentally sound as possible. We therefore fully support the efforts of the MSC to ensure that fisheries are working sustainably to help protect the future of our oceans. We are very proud of our certification.”

Alongside MSC certified cod and haddock, the chippy serves homemade fishcakes, baps, onion rings, curry sauce and minted mushy peas, much of which is made from ingredients sourced locally.

George Clark, UK commercial Manager at the MSC, comments: “It’s great to see a top industry newcomer like Stargazy Fish Bar prioritising sustainability by becoming MSC certified. By offering the choice of a sustainable fish supper, they and their customers are having a huge impact on healthy fish stocks.  They’re setting a great example for other chippies and restaurants in the area - we hope that their success will encourage other chippies to follow their lead.”

At the same time as achieving MSC certification, Stargazy Fish Bar has also been awarded the National Federation of Fish Friers Quality Award.
