Perry's Fish and Chips Lowestoft owner Perry Rudge, 60, said: "We received an email to say we had won the award - we are absolutely delighted.

"I am over the moon."

Admitting he was "very proud," Mr Rudge added: "Thank you to everyone that voted for us.

"We could not have done it without you all. It was the customers who done it with their really great comments - we are really grateful to them."

Mr Rudge, who has owned the shop's freehold since 2008, but leased it out for four years between 2012 and 2016, said: "Over the last three-and-a-half years we've built it up again to what it is today."

The 43-seater restaurant complete with seven specials on the takeaway board, is open on lunchtimes between 11.30am and 2.30pm, from Tuesday to Saturday.

Mr Rudge, who has been frying since 1992, said: "We like to give good quality customer service, offering really good value for money, and I have excellent waitress staff and customer assistants - Sandra, Tracey and Lynne."

With Good Food Awards recognising "the hard-working teams who strive for culinary excellence within their field," of Perrys fish and chips Lowestoft and Atlantic Fish and Chips in Lowestoft, the judges concluded: "Over the last 12 months we have evaluated customer feedback and this fish and chips shop/restaurant has demonstrated exceptional levels of food quality, service and value when compared to our industry benchmarks in their category.

"In recognition of this achievement they have been duly awarded the Good Food Award for Fish and Chips 2020."
