Chip shop owner Martin Bilby has proved himself to be a real high frier after scooping the prize for Doncaster’s number one fish and chip shop.
Scawsby Fisheries has been named as the Doncaster Free Press Chip Shop of the Year - and Martin knows his ‘plaice’ at the top is down to his loyal customers who voted for him to win.
He said: “We’ve got fantastic customers and I want to thank them all for voting for me. I was up against some big well known shops, so its a nice surprise to be the number one.”
Martin, 44, was one of scores of Doncaster chippies vying for the crown, with readers nominating their favourites with the final 15 going head to head in a public vote.
More than 600 votes were received via post and text - with Martin’s Rowena Drive takeaway seeing off the challenge of all the others.
