A Pudsey fish and chip shop has today been named in the top 20 takeaways of the year, in the National Fish and Chip Awards.
The Bearded Sailor in Robin Lane is one of four in Yorkshire to have made the shortlist, joining The Fish Bank in Sherburn in Elmet, Whiteheads Fish and Chips in Hornsea, and Auckley Friery in Doncaster.
The 20 finalists were selected following an extensive judging process of the top 40 fish and chip takeaways, which were announced last month.
The winner will be announced at The National Fish and Chip Awards, hosted by The National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) on the 28 February 2023 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge.
Andrew Crook, President at the NFFF, said: “We received such a high standard of applications this year, for this category in particular, making it a very difficult yet rewarding judging process! The top 20 really demonstrate a strong commitment to the fish and chip industry and to the British public, so we’re thrilled to see so many shortlisted from across the country. Congratulations to everyone involved, this is a massive achievement in itself!”
