Eyes on the fries prize!

A Gloucester Road chippy is the only one in the South West on a shortlist for a national award.

Bishopston Fish Bar, which has been run by Nick Lomvardos for 13 years, is one of 40 named as possible winners of the title Fish and Chip Takeaway of the Year 2024.

The shop has won a number of awards over recent years and is hugely popular.

President of the National Federation of Fish Friers and organiser of the awards, Andrew Crook, said: “The calibre of entries for the National Fish and Chip Awards 2024 have been nothing short of fantastic and we are proud of all the eateries that clearly put in huge amounts of effort to be considered for the accolade.”
