We won the National Fish and Chip awards 2019!


To say we’re honoured to have been chosen as the UK’s top fish and chip shop is an understatement! It’s honestly a dream come true for Tim and I to have won this award at the National Fish and Chip Awards 2019.

We’ve come so far since we opened Krispies 20 years ago and we’re both so excited to be looking after this prestigious award for the next year.

It’s already been pretty busy since we won the award at January’s glamorous ceremony in London, following Tim and I presenting to a panel of judges about why Krispies should be chosen.

Celebrity chef Phil Vickery was presenting the awards and we couldn’t believe it when he said Krispies had won overall! Not long after we’d come down from the stage, Tim and I found ourselves dressed in chef whites, holding a trophy full of fish and chips, and having a photoshoot with Phil!

Winning the award means we’ll both be involved in lots of exciting events and activities during 2019 to help promote Krispies and the fish and chip industry.

The first of which happened the day after the awards ceremony with an appearance on This Morning! We were interviewed by Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes to talk all things fish and chips. Both Ruth and Eamonn were lovely and keen to hear more about where the idea for Krispies’ battered chips came from!

But Tim and I didn’t win the best fish and chip shop award on our own. We’ve always been so proud of our team at Krispies and we both want to thank our team from the bottom of our hearts for their hard work and faith in us.

At Krispies, we offer not only professional development opportunities at work, but personal too. This helped us also win the ‘Staff Training and Development Award’ at the National Fish and Chip awards!

We’re ready to now enjoy the rest of 2019 as winners and we will let you all know about any other exciting events or news as it happens!
