‘The ultimate takeaway experience’: award-winning fish and chips delivered straight to your door

Recent events may have turned life as we know it on its head, but, one thing remains constant: our love for fish and chips.
There is an abundance of fish and chip shops on our doorstep in this part of the world, but only The Blue Fish Co in Worle can boast winning the regional Good Food Award for Fish and Chips for the second year in a row.
Now run by new owners, Shomika and Paul, the shop doesn’t intend to sit on its laurels. They’ve already made great strides in the development of their renowned takeaway experience to ensure the locals continue to vote for them as the best fish and chip shop in the area.
‘Unrivalled’ fish and chips ordering service
In previous years, you could successfully order your Friday night treat from The Blue Fish Co on their website. Although this was sufficient for some time, unsurprisingly, Shomika and Paul have seen a massive increase in orders since the first lockdown, and the website was struggling to cope with the demand. Thinking fast, they developed The Blue Fish Co app and introduced the opportunity to order via their Facebook page.
“No-one predicted just how dependant people would become on takeaways during the lockdown. The website alone wasn’t enough to process the staggering number of orders, and we knew we had to do something to keep our customers happy. The combination of our new app, the use of Facebook, and the original website ordering system ensures that all customers can get their orders in, free of hassle,” says Shomika.

The quality of food remains the same - chips made using only the finest potatoes, and sustainably-sourced fish battered to perfection – but the menu has been revamped to include more scrummy takeaway favourites.
“We wanted to make sure there was something for everyone on the new menu,” explains Shomika.
“People can still get our amazing fish and chips, but they can also now choose from a myriad of delicious burgers, kebabs and wraps, chicken, a wide range of vegetarian alternatives and even a specials menu entailing a full rack of ribs and a turkey skewer.”
The Blue Fish Co has an extensive pizza menu, complete with everything from ‘The Original’ (a classic Margherita) to ‘Peking Duck’ (roasted duck, onion and hoisin plum sauce).
Fish and chips delivery
Customers can order food to collect from the shop, or it can be delivered straight to their door, contact-free.
“All our food is cooked to order to ensure the best possible quality. It’s incredibly important to consider the way orders are packaged, as this can be the crucial difference between a cold, disappointing meal, and one that is fresh, piping hot and exceeds expectations,” explains Shomika.
“Instead of wrapping our food in paper, as is traditionally done, we pack it in special cardboard boxes. The packaging doesn’t touch the food, and we heat the box to 90C – this keeps the food hot for 25 minutes, allowing enough time to deliver it to our customers who rarely live further than 15 minutes away.”
‘Cheap as chips’
Trying to resist the temptation of a takeaway is futile with The Blue Fish Co. If the idea of perfectly fried chips, and crispy battered fish wasn’t enough to make you give in, they’re constantly offering new deals for both delivery and collection.

At the moment, you can take advantage of 40pc off on pizzas if you’re collecting, and there are several other deals too, like ‘Date Night’ which includes a twelve-inch pizza, garlic bread, chicken goujons or nuggets, chips or wedges, a tub of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, and a large drink for £26.99.
