Cirencester business, Malt & Anchor, has been awarded Best Fish and Chip Shop at The Food and Drink Awards. Hosted by Stephen Fry and broadcast for the first time on Sunday 9th at 10:15pm on ITV, it was a celebration of the unsung heroes of the industry.
The restaurant not only offers a traditional ‘chippy’ menu with a sophisticated twist but also has a speciality in ‘fizz and chips’. They also focus on meeting robust requirements for the protection of marine stocks from overfishing by only using MSC certified sustainable Cod and Haddock.
With more people choosing to eat out than ever before the awards will honour the fact the British are now globally regarded as a major culinary power.
A spokesperson added: “It’s time for us to shed our inferiority complex. Other countries have long been famed for their gastronomic superiority, but is that reputation still justified? Chefs across Britain are now undeniably among the world’s very best.
“There’s simply never been a better time to salute the very best of British gastronomy.”
