The awards keep rolling in for George and Anna Michael and Oceans Fish and Chip shop and restaurant. Most recently they’ve walked off with the YEP Chip Shop of the Year award.

“We didn’t know anything about it until the nomination stage, I think a few of our regular customers nominated us in the first place, when we realised we had a chance of winning it, we started to do a bit of self promotion, which I suppose everybody did.” George explained.

For George, Anna and the Oceans team, the award is well deserved. They’ve invested in the shop and in the area, giving us a first class Fish and Chip restaurant.

“We were really gobsmacked we won. There was some really stiff competition and as much as we are proud of the award, really it’s our customers who have won it for us by their votes.” Chipped in Anna.

It’s not Oceans first award this year, they won the regional title for the National Potato Council’s “Best Chippy Chips” award during ‘National Chip Week’ back in February and are also proud holders of the National Federation of Fish Fryers Quality Award, which is held by about 250 chippies nationwide out of a possible 13,000. Since opening the restaurant eighteen months ago, the investment has not stopped.

The increase in business has meant they will be bringing in a custom built, state of the art, range fryer at the beginning of August but for now, they are happy to bask in the glow of another award. “We’d like to thank the many customers who voted for us and continue to use the chip shop and also restaurant, obviously we’re pleased for ourselves but also look at it as another plus point for Crossgates as an area.”
