Frankie’s Fish and Chips has been put up for sale.
The much-lauded chip shop in Brae, named the UK’s best independent chippy as recently as 2015, has been put on the market by owner Valerie Johnson.
Mrs Johnson said on Monday that while she was “very proud” of the business, which opened in 2008, this decision had come as she looked to “concentrate on our other work commitments”.
Her, and husband Gary, also own Johnson Transport and the Brae Garage.
Mrs Johnson said that: “We have enjoyed the experience and the business has achieved a lot during this time which would not be possible without a great team of staff.
“We hope that the business can be passed on to new owners who will continue to source and serve the finest quality local fresh produce to our loyal customers.”
Estate agents Harper Macleod, handling the sale, referred to the restaurant as a “well-known, popular eatery” and said that it “has built up a huge loyal following, popular with both locals and visitors alike”.
