Customers to score free chips if Scotland wins Six Nations

A fish and chip shop in Perthshire, Scotland, has pledged free chips to its customers if Scotland wins the 2018 Six Nations Championship.

Alan McColm and Sarah Heward, owners of the Real Food Cafe in Tyndrum, have made the promise of one free portion of chips per person ahead of the tournament kicking off this weekend.

Should Scotland triumph, hungry visitors will be able to claim their free portion from the popular roadside diner on Sunday 18th March between 11am and 8pm. They must simply say “#AsOne Team Scotland” at the till.

Scotland last won the tournament in 1999 when there were only Five Nations in the tournament. Rugby fan Alan hopes that this incentive will help supporters get behind the team #AsOne and spur them on to an historic victory.

Alan comments: “Sarah and I are very community-focused and also big rugby fans. We enjoy supporting many local events and organisations, including Oban Lorne Mini-Rugby team, whose shirts carry our logo and who are fuelled on our nutritional fish and chips! 

“After playing or watching a game of rugby there’s nothing quite like warming up with some great fish and chips, so we thought what better way to celebrate Scotland winning than to share our chips with the nation!”  


Growing by association

105 years since its first inception, the NFFF continues to represent the fish and chip trade. President Andrew Crook talks about the current issues facing the industry and how the organisation is leading the charge.
