Another National Award Beckons For Frankie's

by Alastair Hamilton -

Frankie's Fish and Chips, in the village of Brae, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Good Catch Award, part of the National Fish & Chip Awards, for the third year in a row.

Co-sponsored by the Marine Stewardship Council and the Marine Conservation Society, the award recognises fish and chip shops which successfully source and promote sustainably caught and harvested fish and shellfish. Frankie's will compete against Kingfisher Fish & Chips in Plymouth and Olley's Fish Experience in London for the top spot.

Frankie's has already been chosen as the best fish and chip shop in Scotland in the National Fish & Chip Awards and will go head to head with nine other fish and chip shops from around the country for the title of best in the UK. All the winners will be announced at a special event to be held in London in January. The annual awards are organised by Seafish.

“At Frankie's, 98 per cent of the fish and shellfish we sell comes from sustainable stocks, so we're delighted to have been shortlisted in the Good Catch Award,” said Frankie's manager John Gold.

Meanwhile, Frankie's has won yet another award, carrying off the prize for "Best Eatery" at the Highlands and Islands Food and Drink Awards, where, as we also report, the Lerwick Brewery impressed judges with its lager.
