A family-run West Norfolk fish and chip van has been named as one of the best in the country.

Tropics Two, based in Dersingham, made the top ten mobile businesses in The Fry Awards 2021, run by Fry Magazine.

Following unannounced mystery dining visits, shops and mobile units were marked on more than 40 aspects of their business, from the quality of the food and customer service to their social media presence and their Covid-safe practices.

All outlets were assessed on the flakiness of the fish, the crispness of the chips and the crunch of the batter, alongside value for money.

Organiser Reece Head said it had been a tough year for fish and chip firms, with many having to operate very differently during the pandemic, but they had been at the heart of their communities.
