Award winning fish and chips in Bishop Auckland
Our Website is still under construction. Please come back soon for more details of one of the best Fish and Chip shops in the North East. Or better still, just come in and try them for yourself!
Beedles Chippy was established and opened in Bishop Auckland on the 21st of August 1991 (20 years in 2011). Throughout this time owner Peter Beedle has strived to achieve the highest of standards.
In 1996 the shop was awarded the Seafish Quality award. One of the first 25 in the country to receive this award at a presentation at the Mayfair hotel in London. The staff has worked tirelessly to successfully achieve this national award for the past 14 years up till 2010 when in 2011 the National Federation of Fish Friers have taken over from Seafish and introduced the Fish and Chip Quality Award Scheme. Of course we will be striving to gain the highest 5 star standard.
This Quality Award stands for an assured degree of excellence. It emphasizes to existing and potential customers, the high standards of product, premises and service offered by the holder. This same degree of excellence will be carried forward by the National Federation of Fish Friers Fish and Chip Quality Award scheme.
During its existence Beedles Chippy have annually entered the National Fish and Chip Shop of the Year run by Seafish, and after 12 hard years competing, it was rewarded with the Area winner in 2003, 2004 ,2005. This meant it was the Best Fish and Chip Shop in Durham and Northumberland, not bad you might think but not good enough for Peter. After winning the Area in 2005 he pushed Beedles into winning the Regional Final putting Beedles Chippy into the top 10 shops in the country. This was a superb attainment putting Beedles not just locally but nationally on the map with newspapers radio and local television all wanting the story. Being the best in Durham, Northumberland, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire still has not fulfilled Peter’s ambition and wants the National Title.
In 2009 Beedles received an award for excellence in Contribution to the Local Community Award for its dedication in supporting local sports teams Bishop Auckland Football club, Cricket Club, Rugby Club, ST Marys Juniors, West Auckland Football Club and charities such as Northeast Wildlife Trust, Northeast Air Ambulance, R.N.I.B., and Fisherman Charity.
More recently after council re-structuring a National award scheme was implemented called Scores on the Doors and was awarded its highest standard of 5 stars.
What for the future, well today’s customers have come to expect and demand high quality standards with every purchase they make and they make this judgement based on the quality of the product, presentation of the business premises and the level of service they receive, this is at the core of Beedles Chippy to show customers that Beedles Chippy is the best in Bishop Auckland, North East and one day the COUNTRY!
