Frankie’s Fish & Chips is a modern, family-owned cafe and takeaway in the village of Brae. Open seven days a week, we serve the best quality fish and chips to people from all over Shetland and visitors to our beautiful islands.
As well as haddock and chips, we sell crab, mussels and king scallops.
All of these are Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified, and all come from the incredibly rich waters around Shetland, meaning not only that they are sustainably caught or harvested, but that they are very low in food miles.
In fact, 98 per cent of the fish and shellfish we sell at Frankie's comes from MSC-accredited stocks.
We believe in the importance of educating future generations about the importance of sustainability, and regularly run the Frankie's Fish Course, an educational but fun programme aimed at primary school children. We have been visiting schools throughout Shetland to talk about different types of fish and explain why sustainability is vital. We always take along a box of fresh fish and shellfish so that the children can see and touch for themselves.
Our staff are our greatest asset and we have invested substantially in their training and development to help us meet the highest standards of hygiene, food quality and customer care.
We have been fortunate to win a wide range of awards, including being voted the best independent takeaway fish and chip shop in the UK in 2015 at the National Fish & Chip Awards. In May 2015, we were highly commended in the first Seafood Restaurant of the Year awards run by Seafish and The Caterer magazine and presented with a Taste Our Best award by VisitScotland.
We are keen supporters of a wide range of charities and each year we stage a Frankie's Cycle Sportive and raffle in aid of charity. The five events so far have raised almost £27,000 for charities, mainly the Fishermen's Mission. In 2015, £6,600 was raised and divided between the Mission, Cancer Research UK and Alzheimer's Research UK.
Frankie's opened in September 2008. Since then, we have shown our passion for the business, working hard to build Frankie’s reputation. We now have an established and popular eatery in our local community which also enjoys a high profile throughout Scotland and the UK more generally.
