Elite Fish and Chip Company in Sleaford has achieved a notable hat-trick after it was named in Fry Magazines list of 50 Best Fish and Chip Shops for the third year running.

Elite’s fish and chip shop in Lincoln was also included on the list for a third year.

Almost 500 fish and chip shops across the UK entered the competition and each one was visited by a mystery diner from an independent company. The mystery diner assessed 40 aspects of the business, including the quality of fish and chips, staff presentation, front-of-house hygiene and customer service.

Rachel Tweedale, manager of the Sleaford restaurant and takeaway, said: “The competition was tougher than ever so we’re delighted to be in the top 50 for the third year running.”
