BISHOPSTON Fish Bar has once again made it into the top 20 fish and chip shops in the UK, claiming the top spot across Wiltshire, Dorset and Avon.
The store is now going head-to-head with another chippy - who won the Devon, Cornwall and Somerset region - to win the Independent Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award for the south and west of England.
Owner Nick Lomvardos' shop was pipped at the post last year, after losing out to a takeaway in Devon.
The popular fish and chip store, opposite the Nevil Road junction on Gloucester Road, has been voted in the top 20 for two years running.
The competition, organised by Seafish, is part of the prestigious annual National Fish and Chip Awards, which rewards outstanding businesses across the UK.
The UK's top 20 was announced on September 9.
To determine whether the Bishopston Fish Bar wins the south and west of England region, the takeaway was mystery shopped by an adjudicator from Seafish, who carried out an intensive four hour inspection of the shop.
Nick said: "We've made a lot of changes since last year's inspection, so fingers crossed it will pay off."
The inspector judged the appearance of the store, staff's interaction with customers and whether food was freshly produced and cooked.
