The Pilot pub in Chiswick, London has been named the winner of The Great Fuller’s Chip Off.

Pubco Fuller's launched the competition to find the best chip in its collection of 185 managed pubs.

Seven finalists were selected from numerous entries who took part in a cook off at the George IV in Chiswick.

The winner was then decided by a panel of judges.

Paul Dickinson, head of food at Fuller’s Inns said: “This competition gives us the opportunity to hero the king of the fryer."

He added: “Chips are something that, I think, you never cook at home and they are often at the heart of a great pub menu. This competition reinforces the role played by the humble chip.”

The Pilot’s Damien Greczycho, impressed the judging panel with his skin on, crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, triple cooked and hand-cut chip.

Jonathon Swaine, the managing director of Fuller’s Inns, who was one of the competition’s judges called the chip “simplicity in a basket". James Brosnan of the Castle pub in Harrow came second with his Cajun-inspired chip.
