Northern Ireland's top chip shop is The Dolphin in Tyrone
A Co Tyrone takeaway has been named the top fish and chip shop in Northern Ireland - again.
This is the second year in a row that The Dolphin takeaway in Dungannon has claimed the Northern Ireland crown and been shortlisted as a UK Top 10 fish & chip shop.
It will now bid to be crowned Independent Takeaway Fish and Chip Shop of the Year at the 2017 National Fish & Chip Awards ceremony in January, organised by Seafish.
To get to this stage, the Dolphin has had to be at the top of their game, facing appraisal by industry experts and mystery shopping assessments to ascertain customer service levels and the quality of fish and chips.
Malachy Mallon, owner of The Dolphin, said: "We are so proud to retain the Northern Ireland title for the second year in a row and to be shortlisted once again in the UK Top 10. To be here again feels just as amazing!
"We've been running for over 27 years, striving to offer the best quality fish and chips, but it's our attention to detail and the care we take with our product and customer service that we believe really sets us apart from the rest.
"We're absolutely thrilled to be acknowledged for our hard work; we have been assessed to within an inch of our life to reach this stage of the game, only the crème de la crème make it through."
