A popular Ipswich chippy has been named among the best in Great Britain. 

Ipswich Codfellas, in Greenfinch Avenue, has been shortlisted in Fry Magazine's top 50 fish and chip shops in the country. 

Mystery judges visited thousands of takeaways and restaurants across the country, before judging them on a range of criteria, including quality, cleanliness, value for money, staff knowledge and ease of ordering. 

Reece Head, competition organiser, said: "Once again we’ve had another year where it’s simply got harder to operate a fish and chip business, with rising energy, labour and ingredient costs taking a heavy toll.

“It’s not easy but operators are working harder and smarter, staying ahead of changing tastes and behaviours and adapting accordingly.

“The businesses that make up our 50 Best Fish & Chip Takeaways and 10 Best Fish & Chip Restaurants represent the best in the industry."

Codfellas has been nominated for a number of prestigious national awards in the past. 

Earlier this year it was shortlisted for an award at the National Fish and Chip Awards in London.
