Judges will now make visits to each of the restaurants for mystery dining assessments and whittle down the shortlist to a top five. These will then receive further in house judging which will decide the national winner.

Marcus Coleman, chief executive at Seafish, said: “The best Fish and Chip Restaurant category is a celebration of the highest quality fish and chip restaurant dining experiences in the UK. The industry is perhaps better known for its take away shops; however this category rewards the restaurants that are serving delicious fish and chips as a core menu offering, providing customers with not only a delicious portion of fish and chips, but an excellent dining experience. We have 20 exceptional candidates in the semi-final shortlist and we wish them all good luck in the next round of judging.”

Alan Pearce, field sales manager at award sponsor Goldensheaf, added: “This category rewards businesses committed to providing the highest standard of fish and chip dining experience, coupled what a drive to constantly improve standards and diversify their offering. We congratulate the 20 restaurants in reaching the semi-final and wish them the best of luck in the rest of the competition.”
