What is the ‘5 Star Quality Award’?


It’s a fact that fish and chips are still Britain’s number one takeaway. The NFFF Fish & Chip Quality Award Scheme is all about finding those shops throughout the UK that give their customers the best quality fish and chips. They are assessed against our quality benchmark and reward successful applicants who pass the inspection and the taste test with the ‘BIG Q’ Quality Award sign. This is so you can be assured of eating top quality fish and chips from a top quality fish and chip outlet!

What did we have to do to get it?


  • Fry up some of UK’s best quality and best tasting fish and chips and have them assessed against a very high quality benchmark.
  • Promote the use of fish sourced from environmentally sustainable stocks to reduce the impact on fish numbers and the environment.
  • Raise standards in the UK fish and chip sector by committing ton continued staff development.
  • Pass a thorough inspection on all aspects of our operation from start to finish. So what we are doing in front of you here, what we do before we even get here and after we have left!

So the award highlights the importance of producing high quality fish and chips in a first class environment inspected by industry professionals!
