Simpsons Fish & Chips in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, scooped the From Field to Frier Award backed by Littleport firm Isle of Ely Produce at this year’s National Fish & Chip Awards.
The award celebrates fish and chip businesses which show excellent potato knowledge and responsible sourcing methods, as well as their skills in producing the finest quality chips.
