Platten’s Fish and Chips was joint runner-up in the newly-created Quality Award section of the National Fish and Chip Shop Awards.

Mark Drummond, vice-president of the National Federation of Fish Friers, which ran the awards, presented Platten’s owner Phil Platten and manager Luke Platten with a certificate.

Mr Blackiston attended to offer his congratulations. He said: “I’ve been to Platten’s many times. My son once came here and asked for sea bass and chips! Fish and chip shops play a huge part in this community in bringing in holidaymakers.

“Most people from Norwich and elsewhere visit Wells for the fish and chips which are immensely popular and serve a great purpose here.”

Phil Platten said: “These awards are about raising standards across the industry and we are delighted to have been recognised.”
