The people of Ipswich are spoilt for choice when it comes to fish and chip shops that have been commended for achieving five-star food hygiene ratings by inspectors. 

There are two award-winning fish and chip shops in Ipswich - Codfellas and Nacton Road Fish Bar - who have been recognised for their great food. 

Here are the fish and chip shops in the town that achieved the highest food hygiene ratings in the town.

How are the fish and chip shops rated during the food and hygiene inspection?

The food and hygiene inspection focuses on three main areas which are:

  • Food hygiene and safety: Which looks at how food is prepared, cooked and stored.
