Lincolnshire Chip Shop named in UK Top 20 Restaurants

The Elite Fish & Chip Company is celebrating once again after its Sleaford restaurant has been named as one of the UK’s top 20 for fish and chips!

Following the news of the shortlist, the Lincolnshire-based chain, which has outlets in Lincoln, Sleaford and Ruskington, will now compete for a place in the final at the 2019 National Fish & Chip Awards as semi-finalists in The Best Fish & Chip Restaurant category.

Rachel Tweedale, Manager at the Elite’s Sleaford restaurant, said: “We’re absolutely bowled over to be named as one of the best places in the UK for fish and chips, and the only one in Lincolnshire too! We’re still on a high from celebrating our 30th anniversary last month, so this news has come at an exciting time!

“To reach this stage of the competition our restaurant was carefully assessed against a range of judging criteria, which considered everything from menu development to staff training, marketing and promotional activity.

“For us, there would be no better way to end our 30th anniversary year than with the title of the UK’s best fish and chip restaurant. Fingers crossed we can make it through the next stage of judging.”

The UK’s Fish and Chip Restaurant of the Year will be announced at The National Fish & Chip Awards’ 31st anniversary, at a ceremony in London on 24th January 2019.
