Commenting on their win, David Miller, who runs Millers Fish & Chips with his son Nick, said: “We brought it home for Haxby! I can’t believe we’re the UK’s best fish and chip shop – words can’t describe how this feels.
“We entered the competition for the first time last year, and we’re so proud to get to the final, but to go all the way this time and scoop the ‘Oscar’ of the fish & chip world is truly amazing.
“As a fourth-generation family business with a 77-year history, we bring the tradition associated with great British fish & chips together with a new, innovative approach. This really does mean everything to us, and we’re so proud of our ourselves, our staff and our business.”
