The restaurants will enter one final round of judging before making its way to the prestigious awards ceremony at The Lancaster London Hotel on 20 January 2015 where the overall national winner will be crowned.
Paul Williams, Chief Executive of Seafish, said: “We are greatly impressed with the high standard and professionalism of entrants in this year’s awards. It was a challenging task to whittle down our finalists, so much so that we have shortlisted five restaurants instead of the usual three. The level of dedication and hard work shown by the finalists is admirable. I look forward to seeing who comes out on top at the final.”
The National Fish & Chip Awards recognise the quality, value and choice offered by fish and chip businesses across the UK.
