We have always known that we have a great choice of fish and chips in Whitby but it has now been recognised nationally by the government's industry authority, 'Seafish.' The takeaway, Quayside in Whitby, won the flagship award at the National Fish and Chip Awards 2014 in London, as well as the award for marketing innovation. It was named the UK’s best independent fish and chip shop. Run by the Fusco family, who also have Royal Fisheries in the town, they were commended for their commitment and determination.

There were ten regional finalists with the Quayside first, Frankies Fish and Chips in Brae, second, and Papa’s Barn in Ditton, third. It’s a great honour for the family and Whitby and not the first time that the family has won awards; Stuart Fusco won the young fish fryer of the year in 2004.
