The Bridlington Free Press is delighted to announce that Audrey’s Fish and Chips has won this year’s Chip Shop of the Year.

Speaking of his success, owner James Morrison says the win is thanks to the hard work and effort of staff, as well as ensuring a high level of customer satisfaction.

“We are really, really pleased,” said James. “We have put a lot of hard work into the business since taking over the family shop.

“We have invested a lot of money in the shop by redecorating.

“We have kept the traditional style but modernised it, and we have also improved our customer service.”

The Queens Street based chippy have recently been at the centre of a media storm for their dyed blue fish to commemorate the Tour De Yorkshire. James said it is Audrey’s commitment to sourcing excellent ingredients has also contributed to their success.

“We put a lot of effort into all aspects of the business, so we resource a lot of our ingredients from the best places.

“We are really affordable compared to a lot of other chip shops, and at the same time we strive to deliver excellent customer service.

“I think we have a really good reputation and the shop has a good name for years and that’s what makes it special.

“We have had a great run these past few years and it keeps getting better and better, and to get the Chop Shop of the Year award tops it off.”

James and staff are now planning to celebrate by heading out for a meal to recognise their excellent “team effort”.

Congratulations also go High Street chippy Gabby’s, who came a close runner up in the competition.

Owner Richard Reece said: “We are pleased to be runner-up. Gabby’s would like to thank all our customers for their support and we will continue to serve good portions and quality products. Thank you Free Press.”
