Top Fish and Chip Restaurant In York Makes Major Investment

Article Date: 2014-12-15

A renowned fish and chip restaurant and take-away chain in Yorkshire has made a significant £60,000 investment in its York outlet to keep up with increased demand for its fish and chips.

The Wetherby Whaler in York, which is based on Ings Lane at York Business Park, has made a number of state-of-the-art renovations to its kitchen, including the installation of a brand new frying range.

The new range is approximately six metres long and has been made by Dutch manufacturer, Kiremko. It took eight people to transport the range into the premises and a window had to be removed from the restaurant to facilitate the manoeuvre.

As part of the frying range, there are dedicated gluten free cooking pans to enable the availability of gluten free fish and chips in the restaurant. Separate pans are used to ensure that no contamination takes place while preparing the food. There are also gluten free soups and desserts available on the restaurant’s menu.

Earlier in the year, the group achieved The National Federation of Fish Friers’ (NFFF) Quality Award – putting it in the top 2.5% of fish and chip shops in the country.

Phillip Murphy, owner of the Wetherby Whaler said: "We are delighted to be making such a major investment, which will allow us to build on our first-class reputation and help us keep up with the increased demand for our fish and chips at our restaurant in York.

"It is exciting times for the Wetherby Whaler, as a whole, as our customer base grows year on year, and we are looking forward to serving more people in the New Year.”
