AN Evesham chippy is set to 'batter' it out with two other chip shops to become the best seasonal fish and chip operator in the country.

StarChip Enterprise in Evesham has been announced as a finalist in the best seasonal fish and chip operator award category in the 2015 National Fish & Chip Awards, organised by Seafish.

They will be up against Dodson’s Fresh Catch in Stanley, Wakefield, West Yorkshire and The Jolly Fryer in Denmead, Hampshire to be crowned the category winner.

This relatively new award category aims to target fish and chip businesses that operate on a seasonal or mobile basis.

To get to this stage of the competition, the fish frying enthusiasts were judged across a variety of criteria including general business practices, customer service, marketing activities and most importantly their fish and chip offering.

The three finalists now have to wait until the anticipated awards ceremony in London on January 20 next year, held at The Lancaster London Hotel, to find out who will be ‘frying’ home as the winner.
