A MOBILE fish and chip shop has been named as one of the UK's best.

North West Event Catering in Kendal has been named as one of the UK’s 10 best mobile fish and chip operators by trade publication Fry Magazine.

To make the list, North West Event Catering had to impress a mystery diner who visited unannounced and marked the van on over 40 aspects of their business from the quality of the food and customer service to cleanliness and value for money.

The company scored 90 per cent.

Owner Craig Chaplow said: “This was an honour to make the list, this was our first time entered into a competition, this is great positive feedback which we try very hard for.

"We are very passionate to provide each and every customer excellent service and products.

"We only use the highest quality sustainable sourced fish and local produce where possible."

Reece Head, competition organiser, said: “The eating out market is more competitive than ever.

"With street food really taking off, the rise of delivery and more outlets offering click and collect, mobile operators really have their work cut out to stand out from the crowd.

"These operators focus on serving a quality product that’s consistent, accompanied by exceptional customer service."
