James Lant and Anna Riley from The English Indian collecting their award

A Lichfield street food outlet has been named the best mobile fish and chip business in the UK.

The English Indian took the crown at the 2020 National Fish and Chip Awards.

Armitage duo James Lant and Anna Riley went one better than their runner-up slot last year to take the prize, beating off competition from across the country.

The judging saw businesses faced a range of tests – including mystery diners – as they were scored across criteria including the quality of the product, sustainable sourcing policies and staff training processes.

Marcus Coleman, chief executive at Seafish, which organises the competition, said:

“The judges were hugely impressed by The English Indian at every stage of the competition.

“They showed an unwavering commitment to putting out a quality product at all times, overcoming the challenges that mobile operators face while on the road travelling to various events.

“This passion for quality and the overall approach to business taken by The English Indian makes them an inspiration to mobile operators across the UK.

“Huge congratulations to them on their achievements to date and we wish them all the best going forward.”
