Its official, The Three Tuns, Sittingbourne has been awarded the ‘Best Pub/Restaurant Chips’, National Champions, in the UK, as voted for by the public, in the Choice Chip Awards for Chip Week.
The Sittingbourne based establishment was frying high after being awarded the prestigious title in a competition to celebrate Chip Week 2012, which starts today (20-26 February), and recognises and rewards the quality chips being served by chip shops and independent pubs/restaurants in nine different regions.
Chip fans voted in their thousands in the Choice Chip Awards, with nearly 600 chip shops and pub/restaurants across the country involved and 35,000 votes received at chips.lovepotatoes.co.uk and through voting cards in shops.
Chris and the team were over the moon with the award. Chris said: “It’s unbelievable and I can’t thank our customers enough for voting for us. It really makes me proud to say we’ve got the best pub/restaurant chips in the UK!”
Kate Cox, Chip Week campaign manager for Potato Council, said: “Chip Week is a celebration of the Nation’s love of chips and as we suspected people are very passionate about their chips, hence why the Choice Chip Awards have been so incredibly popular, with over 35,000 eager chip lovers voting to put their favourite independent pub/restaurant on the map.
“This has been a great start to Chip Week 2012, which will see celebrations taking place in shops, pubs, restaurants and retailers across the country. I’m sure that their customers will continue to support them during Chip Week”.
