Best Fish & Chip Restaurant in the UK – National Fish & Chip Awards 2020


We are proud to announce that Trenchers, Spanish City is officially the Best Fish and Chip Restaurant in the UK as part of the 2020 National Fish and Chip Awards.

A big congratulations to our Trenchers Team who worked very hard, to achieve the NFFF (National Federation of Fish Fryers) Quality Standard Award, MSC Certification and received numerous mystery visits and inspections from Seafish to receive this prestigious award.

These are the comments from the judges who attended a mystery visit to Trenchers.

“We had a fantastic visit to Trenchers. The restaurant was located within the beautiful Spanish City dome and the restaurant itself was very well presented. All furnishings were immaculate and the low lighting with candle-lit tables and accompanying pianist provided a wonderful ambience. Staff were warm and friendly and provided good customer service throughout our visit.

The quality of the food was very good, with all aspects of our meal arriving at the table well presented, well cooked and full of flavour. Portion sizes were generous and our drinks were well presented, with the tea arriving in a beautiful teapot for one. Overall, we would not hesitate to recommend Trenchers to friends and family.”
