The votes are in and we can now reveal the Wakefield Express Chip Shop of the Year for 2019.
For a third consecutive year Mother Hubbard’s has taken the top slot.
Fred Ahmed, from the Horbury Road chippy, said: “I’m really pleased. I didn’t know if we’d win it for a third year in a row but we always put 100 per cent in - it’s all about the quality.
“I want to show my appreciation to all our customers and hopefully we can do better and better. We will definitely enter again next year and I hope we can make it four years in row.”
In second place was Kirkhamgate Fisheries on Batley Road, which came third in last year’s award. Owner Joshua Ellis said: “I’m really pleased, absolutely. I wasn’t expecting it.
“I think people keep coming back to us because we’re a small shop, there’s just the three of us here and you get to know the same people.
“I’d like to give a massive thank you to all our customers for using us and I hope they carry on coming.
“We’re not a massive chain we’re just a local business.”
And in third place was Brown’s Fisheries in Normanton.
Owner Ian Nutbrown said: “I’m glad we managed to win it over some of the big chains. We look after regulars and welcome any newcomers.
“I’d like to say a big thank you to anyone who voted for us.”
