Bay chippy is best in West Country
A FISH and chip shop in Torquay is celebrating once again after being named the best in the region in industry awards.
Hanbury's in Babbacombe was crowned the best fish and chip shop in South West England as part of the National Fish and Chip Awards 2013, organised by Seafish, the authority on seafood.
Owner David Hanbury will now compete against nine of the UK's best fish and chip shops for the coveted independent takeaway fish and chip shop of the year award which will be announced in London in January.
Mr Hanbury said: "We are delighted to win the regional title especially as Hanbury's has a long history with the awards, having been involved with the process for 25 years.
