STAFF at Frydays fish and chip shop in Seaton are frying high after clinching a top industry award.The successful takeaway and restaurant in The Burrow has been awarded the Seafish Fryer's Quality Award for its excellent food, hygiene and customer service.The Sea Fish Industry Authority (Seafish) works to promote good quality, sustainable seafood throughout the UK and only 18 fish and chip shops in the whole of Devon have achieved this prestigious status.Owner Ashley Mitchell said: "This is the third year on the trot we've received this prize and we'd like to thank all our customers, old and new, for their support."Staff received an unannounced visit from a Seafish inspector last year who carried out 240 checks throughout the premises and sent food away for laboratory testing before awarding the prize.When asked the secret of his success, Mr Mitchell said: "We only use the best available potatoes and sustainable deep-sea Icelandic cod so the product is always top quality."We also have a great staff who take pride in their work and a lot of effort has gone into receiving this award.
