A YORK chippy has been named the best in the region as part of the National Fish and Chip Awards.

Millers Fish & Chips in Haxby will now join 10 rivals from across the country as it competes for a national title and aims to be crowned number one in the UK.

Nick Miller, who runs Millers Fish & Chips with his father, David, said: “We are absolutely ecstatic and very proud to have been shortlisted once again in the awards, after making the top three last year.

“We’re so grateful to our customers and community here in Haxby, who have got behind us wholeheartedly for the second year running, their support is just incredible.”

A panel judged the shop’s frying skills, assessed their menu development, innovation and staff training processes before naming them the regional winner.
