A FISH and chip shop in Weston has been crowned as a winner in the Good Food Awards.

Kingfishers Fish & Chips has scooped the Blue Ribbon for Delicious Dishes’ Good Food Award 2023/24, which is given to businesses with high customer ratings and votes.

More is explained on the Good Food Award website: "Our Good Food Awards, also known as the Blue Ribbon for Delicious Dishes™, are awarded to those who excel in food quality, service, and value.

"We use customer feedback/votes and online reviews to ensure that our awards are based on merit and reflect the opinions of actual diners. Many awardees have become regular recipients by maintaining the same high standards that earned them their first recognition.

"We cannot guarantee that we score every eating establishment, as many are opened and closed throughout the year. However, interested participants can apply for our prestigious Good Food Award, and you cast a vote for your favourite establishment.

"We set a high bar for our awards, and as of 19 June 2016, a staggering 76,631 dining establishments would not have been eligible to participate in our awards program based solely on their Food Hygiene Rating.

"While all awards have subjective elements, we have delighted our readers and fans for over twenty years."

Posting on Facebook back in February, a spokesperson from the fish and chip shop said: "We at Kingfishers are hugely proud to have been awarded GOOD FOOD AWARD WINNERS 2023.

"Thank you everyone for your support throughout the years."

The company, found on Winterstoke Road, serves everything from classic cod to tasty pies and chicken.

The shop prides itself on serving fresh, high quality ingredients. The store's website reads: "We're proud to serve high quality, fish from the clean cold waters of Iceland with a focus on sustainability, balance to the marine environment, and of course an incredible taste and flavour you won't find anywhere else.

"We only use the best British potatoes for our chips which are prepared daily in house.

"To ensure your meal is cooked to the highest quality, there may be a short but worthwhile wait."

Kingfishers Fish & Chips has been approached by the Weston Mercury.
