Dobbies finds fish and chips fans

This National Fish and Chip Day (Thursday 6 June 2024), Dobbies has scoured its stores to find the nation’s top fish and chips fans and reports that Surrey residents are frying high at number one at Woodcote Green, followed by Tewkesbury, Edinburgh, Atherstone and Cirencester.

Dobbies found that in the past year, customers at the Woodcote Green store are nine times most likely to order Britain’s favourite meal when visiting the garden centre compared to Dobbies’ customers in other towns.

With customers choosing to tuck into Dobbies’ beloved fish and chips on a Friday more than any other day, the garden centre sold most of the dish across its 68 stores with a restaurant offering in October 2023.

Sherrianne Swales, Head of Operational Excellence at Dobbies, said“While we’re famed for our scones and afternoon teas, it’s no surprise that our customers love coming to our restaurants for the quintessentially British fish and chips.

“At Dobbies, we are committed to offering our customers a relaxed and quality experience in our restaurants – a visit to Dobbies is a great day out, and we love sharing our passion for bringing communties together to connect and share great food.

“We’re pleased that our Woodcote Green customers are such fans of our fish and chips and look forward to serving up more this National Fish and Chip Day.”

Dobbies has 77 stores across the UK, employs 3,800 people and has welcomed over 30 million customers in the year-to-date.
