|The Great Fuller's chip-off crowned a chef from Chiswick pub, The Pilot, king of the fryer, for his triple-cooked basket of fries, with runner-up The Castle pub in Harrow.|
The tastiest chips in the house came from the hands of Damien Greczycho who served up the hand cut potato sticks, crispy yet fluffy, with the skin left on, gaining him the number one spot.
Jonathon Swaine, managing director of Fuller’s Inns, who was on the judging panel along with his family, described this chip as “simplicity in a basket”.
Paul Dickinson, head of food at Fuller’s Inns, said: “We’ve got some great chips throughout our estate but this competition gives us an opportunity to hero the King of the Fryer.
"All the finalists did a great job of raising the bar of chip cooking.
"In the end, it was the expertise of Damien Greczycho at the Pilot, Chiswick who created well executed every day, simple chip. It did the potatoes justice. ”
Mr Swaine added: “Chips are something that, I think, you never cook at home and they are often at the heart of a great pub menu.
