Three fish and chip restaurants in Norfolk have been announced as some of the best in the UK.

Eric's Fish and Chips in Thornham, The Rembrandt in Easton and Upstairs at No1 in Cromer have been named as three of the UK's top 20 fish and chip restaurants as part of the 30th National Fish & Chip Awards.

The restaurants have been shortlisted as semi-finalists for the Fish and Chip Restaurant of the Year Award and will now battle it out against 17 other eateries for a place in the grand final.

Over the coming weeks judges will make unannounced visits to the all shortlisted restaurants and will critique the food on offer and the levels of customer service.

The restaurants will then be whittled down to a top five before the overall title is presented at the awards ceremony in London on January 25.
