Fish and chips on a Friday – it’s one of our most beloved traditions and we’re on the hunt to find out who does it best here in Reading.

Suggestions came pouring in last month when we launched our competition to find the best chip shop in the borough.

And because there were so many, we decided to extend our closing date to give even more of you the chance to vote for your favourite chippy.

Nominations now close on June 20 and the top 10 will be announced the week commencing June 21.

Whether it’s their perfect pies, crispy golden batter, succulent chicken or fluffy chips that does it for you, show your local favourite chippy your appreciation.

Group Editor Andrew Colley said: “Takeaways have been a lifeline for hospitality businesses during the pandemic and the Reading Chronicle wants to acknowledge their hard work in keeping the county going.”

Whether it’s New City Fish Bar, Finn’s Fish and Chips, Four Seasons Fish and Chips, Tasty Plaice, The Fat Fish or another fish and chip eatery – and there are many more to choose from – you have until next Sunday to tell us what you think.

All you need to do to nominate your best chip shop in Reading is visit by June 20.

We will then announce the 10 businesses with the most nominations and you can vote between them to crown the Reading Chronicle’s Best Fish and Chip Shop 2021 winner.
