Ahoy there! Captain visits town chippy

A DONCASTER fish and chip owmer is excitedly awaiting a visit from the captain and owner of Iceland’s biggest fishing vessel next week.

Scawsby Fisheries was chosen by the Granbi’s owner for a visit because they provide their catch to the shop through the UK’s leading importers of Icelandic haddock and cod suppliers, Warners Fish Merchants based in Doncaster.

Martyn Bilby, the owner, said: “It’s a big achievement. This is the first time the captain and the owner have undertaken visits.

“They want to see the quality and the finished product. The ship has a high standard and they want to see that quality all the way through to how I sell the fish.”

Martyn has won numerous awards and made headlines earlier this year for frying creme eggs in batter for charity at his previous store, GJs in the Frenchgate Centre.
