The Kingfisher Restaurant

Makeover for Kingfisher

The Kingfisher Restaurant & Takeaway underwent a major new re-brand in 2009 which involved a whole new re-furbishment of the restaurant, new menus, exterior signage and website.

The new restaurant has a fresh, contemporary feel, while at the same time retaining some of its lovely original features such as the beams and of course, the beautiful stained glass window with the trademark Kingfisher.

Says Kingfisher owner, John Hutchinson: "The decision to re-furbish the restaurant was not taken lightly as many of our customers are not only regulars, but have been coming to us for many years, but judging from the very positive feedback we have been getting, it was definitely the right thing to do."

5 Star Fish & Chip Quality Award for Kingfisher

The Kingfisher team were delighted to have qualified for this prestigious award from The National Federation of Fish Fryers (NFFF) to raise the standards within our industry.

To qualify we had to undergo a thorough inspection by a National Federation of Fish Friers Inspector who assessed us on our image, shop design, standards of hygiene, staff training, equipment, frying competence, sales skills and, most importantly, the quality of the
cooked product.

The NFFF say "The NFFF Fish and Chip Quality Award logo tells you that the shops displaying the logo and certificate have attained these high standards and produce the best quality fish and chips. In fact it tells you that they are one of the best fish and chip shops in the UK!"

In order to retain the award we will be assessed on a bi-annual basis so you can guarantee that we will be working as hard as ever to maintain our standards!

This award replaces the Seafish Friers Quality Award.
