Frankie’s wins again

Frankie's Fish & Chips has scooped another award.

BRAE takeaway Frankie’s Fish & Chips has been named the best chippy in Scotland for the second successive year.

The popular eatery has also been named as one of the top 10 independent takeaway fish and chip shops in the UK and will compete against other regional winners in the 2015 National Fish & Chip Awards next January.


Earlier this year it came second in the UK-wide contest.

“We’re absolutely bowled over,” said Frankie’s manager John Gold, thanking all the shop’s customers for their support. “We did not think we could win top shop in Scotland again with all the competition that’s out there and getting better all the time.

“To win it for the second year in a row is very special indeed and the staff are smiling a lot today.

“We look forward to going to London again for the grand finals in January and meeting up with our friends and acquaintances in the trade.”

Frankie’s was pitted against Moore’s Fish & Chips in Castle Douglas, Dumfries & Galloway, for the title of top independent takeaway in Scotland.

The awards are organised by Seafish and judging involved an unannounced visit by an industry expert who “examined in exhaustive detail all aspects” of the business.

Since opening six years ago Frankie’s – which employs seven full time and 15 part time staff – has won an array of awards.
