A fish and chip shop war has been declared to find the best chippie in a national competition.

Costas Fish Bar and Chariot Wheel Fish Bar are to go head-to-head to compete for the coveted title for the best fish and chip shop in London and the South East as part of the National Fish and Chip shop of the Year competition 2004.

Customers now have two weeks to vote for their favourite local chippy by filling out nomination forms available at participating shops.
