The 11 North West fish and chip shops named among the best in the UK – Lancs Live

Eleven fish and chips shops in the North West are considered to be among the very best in the UK,

This includes The Cottage by Haddocks in Rossendale which takes the crown as the best in the county.

Many a person will spend a Friday heading to the Fylde coast for fish and chips so it’s a surprise to see no outlets in Blackpool, Lytham or Fleetwood appear in the list.

Organisers praised the quality of the food, customer service, Covid practices during the pandemic and many other aspects of the best chip shops included.

Fry Magazine said: “Following an unannounced mystery dining visit, shops and mobile units were marked on over 40 aspects of their business, from the quality of the food and customer service to their social media presence and their Covid safe practices.

“Once again, the food remained the main focus, with all outlets assessed on the flakiness of the fish, the crispness of the chips and the crunch of the batter, alongside value for money.

“And even despite the challenges and restrictions posed by Covid, entrants didn’t let standards slip with the benchmark to pass set at 97 per cent for takeaways and 92 per cent for mobiles – the highest in the awards’ history.”
