A NORTH Herefordshire fish and chip shop has been named as a finalist for another award, fresh from being given the title as one of the best 50 in the UK.

The Fiddlers Elbow Fish and Chips in Rosemary Lane, Leintwardine, has been named one of the five best takeaways in the West Midlands, and the only chippy from Herefordshire.

The winners from the twelve regions will be chosen by a panel of judges who will take into consideration the number of votes, feedback from a mystery shopper and comments from the owners.

As well as the accolade, the regional winner will receive £1,000 and the overall winner, named Best Takeaway in Britain, will scoop £5,000 when the winners are announced at The Savoy hotel in London in January.
