V.A.Whitley are proud sponsors of the Fry Magazine Awards which were launched online at and through the pages of Fry Magazine in 2012. The UK’s 50 Best Fish & Chip Shops, 10 Best Restaurants and the 10 Best Mobile Units categories are tasked with simply finding the UK’s very finest fish and chip shops as judged by mystery diners.

There is NO PAPERWORK judging, simply book your slot that will take you less than 2 minutes and one of our awards team will contact you for your shops details you would like mystery dined.

Shops enter anonymously and in complete confidence as Fry Magazine do not publish the entries list.  ALL the entries undergo a mystery dining visit from ‘Shoppers Anonymous’ a Nationwide and independent company.

This ensures all shops and mobile units of all sizes and turnover get the same equal opportunity to showcase their great British fish & chip offering.

Shops are judged simply on front of house, food quality, service and the overall customer experience. All shops and mobile units that enter get their actual mystery dining papers sent to them so they can evaluate and improve their business for total transparency.

The Top 50 scores are the ‘’50 Best’’, top 10 scores make up the 10 Best Restaurants of that category and the top 10 scores make up the 10 Best Mobile Units of that category.

The winners each receive a winners certificate, and A2 Window poster to display in their shops or mobile units and the results will be covered extensively both online and within the magazine. The biggest benefit to your business will be the coverage gained within local press which from past winners has led to increases of over 50% in turnover!
