Love Fish & Chips... Kingfisher Fish & Chips Fish & chips created   With love and passion
Kingfisher Fish & Chips

It’s our brand new blog!

- Drum roll please! -

Welcome to this, the very first post on the very first Kingfisher blog! Here you’ll find everything from new additions to our menu, glimpses ‘behind the scenes’, chats with our suppliers and recipe tips, as well as news, views and general musings on all things fish and chips.

- Hello 2018! -

It’s fair to say the last twelve months as the UK’s No 1 Fish & Chip Shop have been a bit of a blur for us. We’ve covered thousands of miles, serving thousands of portions of fish and chips, proudly flying the flag for the nation’s favourite takeaway. The National Fish & Chip Awards rules state that no chippy may win the award in consecutive years so although sad that our reign has come to an end, we were delighted to hand over the trophy to the 2018 winners in January.

Now it’s time for us to use all we’ve learnt over the past year to help us continue to serve our customers the delicious sustainable fish and chips they’ve come to expect.

- Over to you -

As well as finding out a bit more about Kingfisher, we’d like to hear from you too! Got a burning question about our batter? Want tips for the perfect chips? Think there’s something missing from our menu? Or wondering where your cod comes from?

- The plastic pollution revolution -

Thanks to the BBC's brilliant Blue Planet, none of us can fail to realise the devastating consequences of plastic pollution. Like most viewers, I was distressed by the scenes of the baby albatross, killed by a single toothpick. But these shock tactics are really making us wake up and question the impact of our throw-away society. And it seems the effects are more far-reaching than first feared. Even some of the most pristine parts of the world are being affected, such as the Norwegian Arctic (BBC News), the very place where our fantastic Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified sustainable cod is caught.

- What are we doing about it? -

Using the most environmentally-friendly materials possibly can be challenging. Replacing plastic packaging on a like-for-like basis is not always straightforward and can have an impact on prices, portion sizes and quality. However, protecting the environment is a cause close to our hearts so it's an issue we're determined to crack. So when you pop into the shop for fish and chips, you'll find recyclable food boxes and wooden, rather than plastic, cutlery. Oh, and no straws. What's more, inspired by the dramatic reduction in plastic bag usage since the 5p charge was introduced, we began selling our own bags for life, around 18 months ago. There's always more we can do though and we're constantly reviewing the products we use.

Beyond our packaging, we're really proud to be recognised as having the "world's most sustainable seafood menu" for our record number of MSC certified species. I was thrilled to be named "Sustainable Chef of the Year 2017". And we're also one of just two chippies to be awarded the maximum 3 star rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association.

- Freebie alert! -

To help all our customers do their bit to cut plastic pollution, this March and April, we're offering a free Kingfisher bag for life (usually £2.50) when you spend over £20. They're thermally insulated to keep your chippy tea warm until you get home. And when they eventually run out, we'll happily replace them.

We love hearing your thoughts and ideas. How are you reducing your plastic usage? Any clever tips you want to share? Or maybe you've seen some brilliant packaging you think we should see?
