FOR OCTOBER ONLY…WATCH OUT FOR OUR PHISH & CHIPS VAN
During the month of October, in our distinctive Frying Squad van newly rebranded by Santander, we are travelling around the UK giving away our delicious fish and chips in return for any phishing emails and smishing texts you may have recieved, and delivering tips to avoid phishing scams.
Three quarters of Britons report being targeted by scammers with phishing emails, smishing texts and vishing calls. With each person targeted receiving an average of 16 fraudulent emails, texts or calls last year, adding up to a total of 600 million phishing, smishing and vishing attempts in the UK in the last twelve months*.
To raise public awareness of this issue Santander UK has given a truly British institution a distinctly phishy twist: by launching a fish and chips van that accepts payment in the form of phishing emails and smishing texts.
The van will visit:
Leicester – Friday 13th October 2017
Birmingham – Saturday 14th October 2017
Cardiff – Friday 20th October 2017
Bristol – Saturday 21st October 2017
London – Tuesday 24th October 2017
Leeds – Friday 27th October 2017
Glasgow – Saturday 28th October 2017

We are proud to announce that Sarsons, who have had the passion for making vinegar the traditional way since 1794, now sponsor the Frying Squad and the feedback so far is that everybody seems to like our new livery.
Top quality vinegar has always been the classic accompaniment to succulent fried fish and chips, and now not only do The Frying Squad serve up the finest Sarsons Malt Vinegar with your tasty treats but we serve it up from our impressively decorated Sarsons van!
It’s not often we get the chance to hire TV presenters Matt Baker and Alex Jones to serve up our fabulous fish and chips from one of the Frying Squad vehicles, or to find a pitch right outside Broadcasting House, but we managed it! Just one of many corporate functions we have been contracted to attend.
The Frying Squad were delighted to be asked to appear on the BBC’s flagship evening programme THE ONE SHOW, alongside the younger cast out ‘Outnumbered’; Tyger Drew-Honey, Daniel Roche and Ramona Marquez. There is also a guest appearance by ‘Birds of a Feather’ star Lesley Joseph desperate to grab one of our battered sausages!
FISH AND CHIPS AND MORE!
Joining our original famous Frying Squad Sarsons Vinegar van, we are happy to introduce our brand new modern, super reliable Citroen HY van which now enables us to cook up a much wider menu range. Let us know what ideas you have for your ideal hot or cold catering requirements and we will give you a competitive quotation for top quality fayre.
We have catered for many at weddings, from the main wedding breakfast served in a castle to our our much loved Frying Squad van turning up at midnight to serve a fish and chip supper to guests as the bride and groom are leaving.
One of our memorable functions was for a lovely couple Polly and Ewen which was featured in an earlier edition of Cosmopolitan Bride.

Melanie and Gareth wanted a big country wedding but the cost was prohibitive, so they decided to stay in London and to try to bring a bit of country charm to the city.
We served them vintage afternoon tea followed by a slap up meal from our fish and chip van in the evening. Friends and family who had travelled from abroad particularly enjoyed that very British experience.
