Popular Lewisham fish and chip shop, Brockley’s Rock, has been awarded the prestigious Good Food Award for Fish and Chips 2020.

Over the past twelve months, critics have been trawling the country for the best customer feedback and overall tastiest fish and chips the UK has to offer.

Good Food said: “Brockley’s Rock demonstrated exceptional levels of food quality, service and value when compared to other industry benchmarks in their category.”

In recognition of this achievement, the South-London chippy proudly displays its 2020 Good Food Award banner outside the store.

The family-owned business, which boasts calamari, salmon and tiger prawns on its menu is also one of 60 nominees for the Fish and Chip Shop of the Year Award. The winner will be announced in January 2020, on the awards’ 32nd-anniversary.

Independent body, Seafish, run the awards. It has a host of categories, including the coveted Good Catch Prize, which awards the most ethically conscious chippy.

But what makes Brockley’s Rock such a catch? Owner Kyri Karoullac told Eastlondonlines: “From the moment we opened our doors in 2011 we’ve been busy, and we get a lot of support from the locals. People seem to like us, so we can’t complain.”

Eastlondonlines went undercover last night to see what all the fuss is about, and we can confirm that Brockley’s Rock are no small-fry; if you don’t mind a bit of queue, then the food and friendly staff are well worth the wait.
