A fish and chip shop in St Neots has been shortlisted for an industry award.

Traditional Fish & Chips, in Cambridge Street, is one of six outlets to have won a place in the eastern region’s 2017 National Fish & Chip Awards, organised by Seafish.

The six shops will now compete for the ultimate accolade - Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award – and hopes to claim the title of ‘best fish and chip shop’ in the UK.

All the shops will be subject to further judging in the coming weeks, including mystery shopper assessments to establish a UK top 20 finalists, with the winner being announced in January.

The business is owned by brothers Luke and Matthew Hoare who set up the shop eight years ago and have been nominated for the second time.
