COMPETITION: Northampton chip shop of the year shortlist

editorial image

THIS is your chance to vote for your favourite fish and chip shop.

We’ve been asking readers to tell us which chippy gets it right and why it should be named the best. The entries have been received and here is the shortlist.

The one that eventually gets the most votes from our readers will be crowned the Chronicle & Echo Chip Shop of the Year.

It could be the delicious, crispy batter and the locally caught fish that make you love your chippy so much.

Or maybe it’s the quality of the potatoes and the fact that when they’re made into chips, they’re kept fresh and cooked to order.

Maybe you love the banter you have with the staff and enjoy the place’s quirky touches.

But it doesn’t end there. Chippies have broadened their horizons so it might be that you want to give credit for something else! A tasty kebab and chips? The perfect pie and chips? A succulent sausage and chips? You get the gist!

To vote for your favourite, you can either text your vote or fill out the form on this page and send it to us. The winner with the most votes will then be announced and presented with their prize.

To vote by text - text NCEVOTE then a space, followed by the number of the chip shop you wish to vote for along with your name, addresss and postcode to 65550.

All text messages cost £1 plus standard networks rates. Terms and conditions apply.
