Owners Mathew Silk and Tracy Poskitt received the award from food critic Jay Rayner at a ceremony in London. Ms Poskitt said: “To take home the highest accolade in the fish and chips industry is a dream come true.”
She and Mr Silk opened the restaurant in 2008 after overhauling the premises.
Shops all over the country were judged on responsible seafood sourcing, customer service, food hygiene, staff training and community spirit by seafood authority and award organisers Seafish. Peckish in Cornwall came second and Seniors at Marsh Mill in Lancashire came third.
