Belfast's Fish City named NI's top fish and chip restaurant

Fish City is located in Ann Street in Belfast

BELFAST'S Fish City has been named Northern Ireland's top fish and chip restaurant.

The Ann Street eaterie will now compete against nine other finalists for the title of best in the UK.

The city centre restaurant was the only one in the north to make the top 10 of the 2020 National Fish and Chip Awards, which "recognise outstanding restaurants that are serving incredible fish and chips and providing excellent customer service".

Organised by Seafish, the public body that supports the £10 billion UK seafood industry, the award category is open to all fish and chip businesses with a sit-in restaurant.

Judges will make a final round of visits to each of the restaurants for mystery dining assessments before crowning the winner at a ceremony in London in January.

Marcus Coleman from Seafish said: "The UK is world-renowned for fish and chip takeaways, but there are plenty of incredible restaurants serving tasty, healthy fish and chips to sit in customers day in day out.

"We have 10 of these exceptional restaurants represented in this list. Each is a credit to our industry and we wish them all good luck in the final round of judging."
