A Tonbridge restaurant has battered its opposition after being crowned the UK's top diner serving fish and chips.
The Little Brown Jug in Chiddingstone Causeway has been named the top food service operator as part of the 2019 National Fish and Chip Awards, organised by Seafish.
This category was open to outlets including pubs, restaurants, leisure outlets, cafés and hotels, where fish and chips is included on the menu but not as the core offering.
To reach this stage of the competition, The Little Brown Jug was assessed against a wide variety of judging criteria including responsible sourcing policies, preparation and cooking techniques, promotional activity and menu innovation.
Marcus Coleman, Chief Executive at Seafish, said: “This award is proof that you can eat high quality fish and chips in places other than fish and chip takeaways and restaurants.
"This award celebrates businesses that don’t solely focus on producing fish and chips, but nevertheless go the extra mile to create great quality fish and chips and provide customers with a memorable dining experience. Well done to The Little Brown Jug.”
