A fish and chip shop in Croxley has been honoured for the sixth consecutive year in the Good Food Awards.
The Corner Plaice, located on Baldwins Lane in the village, has now been awarded the highest accolade of the Gold Seal in the Fish & Chip category for 2021.
Harry Kyriakou, owner of the store, said he enters a couple of competitions each year to try his luck.
He said: “I enter a few every year just because you’ve got nothing to lose basically, you enter and see what happens.
“This award gives us a bit of publicity to keep things going, especially with everything going on. I’m always happy to receive an award, I’m just not a shouter about it.”
Harry added that in the sixth year of winning the award, he believes one of the reasons for continuing success could be consistency.
He said: “We are consistent, and we make a lot of effort with regards to cleaning our shop, keeping our standard up and keep up our five-star rating. These are all things we are continuously doing.”
The shop regularly raises money for the local New Hope Trust and were runners up for another award created by Sarson’s.
In being awarded runners up, the Corner Plaice were donated £200 which they used to buy 5,000 masks to ensure the safety of customers and staff.
Harry added that he has been supported throughout the pandemic.
He said: “We have a very strong regularly client base which probably helped us through the pandemic.
“I’m also very proud of our young team who have worked so hard during the pandemic.”
