Ballymena’s Merchant takes top award - Best Overall Fish and Chip Shop in Northern Ireland
The Merchant Ballymena lifted two coveted accolades at a prestigious awards ceremony on Monday night (5 July 2021) at The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Belfast.
The Northern Ireland Fish and Chip Shop Awards celebrates the best of the province’s takeaways, and one of the much-enjoyed local traditional treats - battered fish with chips - salt and vinegar optional (but preferable).
At last night‘s ceremony, the Merchant lifted the top awards for both County Antrim, and overall in Northern Ireland.
Merchant boss, Terry Scullion, was delighted with the awards and said it was a win for the whole team:
“It was a brilliant achievement for us to win not one, but two of the big awards last night - best overall in County Antrim and best in the country. I want to thank our hard working staff for making it happen, and also our loyal customers - thank you!”
