Lucy's Fish and Chips at Norwich Market is selling deep-fried Brussels sprouts, mince pies and Christmas puddings until Christmas Eve.

The items are back by popular demand for 2019 and the sweet dishes are served with Brandy sauce for extra indulgence.

The business is owned by twin brothers Barclay and Kingston Gray, both 52 from Norwich, and they expanded into the neighbouring stall and created a new seating area after Bia Vegan Diner left earlier this year.

Kingston said: "The mince pie has a doughnut-type taste, if you love Christmas pudding then this is an extra thing to make it even better and I love sprouts and they went really well last year, but they are a love or hate thing like Marmite.

Lucy's Chips was first founded in 1971 and the original stall is still located in the market.

Whilst the original stall solely serves chips, cooked in beef dripping, the newer one has been open for five years and also caters for vegetarians and vegans.

Lucy's son inherited the business when she retired and Kingston and Barclay's cousin bought it ten years ago and they took over from him three years ago.

The mince pies and Brussels sprouts cost £1 and the Christmas pudding is priced at £1.50 and they are available Monday to Saturday 11am to 4.30pm.
