LH & Son's Fish and Chips is serving battered Christmas Pudding over the festive period, reprising a move first made in its former location on Station Road South, Belton.

Following a family recipe created by owner Connie Hodges's great-grandmother, the shop is serving the traditional puds in batter with Amaretto custard.

Mrs Hodges said: 'When we had the shop in Belton, we made them one year and had a great response, but this is the first time we've done it in Great Yarmouth.

'It has been doing quite well, we sold around 40 when the Christmas Fair was on and everybody who has tried it has really enjoyed it - it's just whether they are brave enough to give it a go to begin with.'

The decision to serve the festive treat has been met with surprise by customers, many of whom have been photographing it before even taking a bite.

'People take one look and say 'Oh my God', but they've been going down really well,' Mrs Hodges added.
