Think of somewhere that has been chosen as the best place to eat and you might imagine a fancy restaurant.
But that is not the case in Hull.
The top spot for Hull’s best restaurant has previously be held by Nibble, Madras, Aegean Taverna and The Persian.
But now there is a number one, and it is an award-winning chippy.
Kingfisher in Endike Lane, north Hull, took home the trophy for takeaway of the year at Hull Live’s Food & Drink Awards 2019, and it has won the respect of TripAdvisor users, too.
The fish and chip shop has been described as “beautiful” by customers, with one review stating: “The fish is always fresh, the batter is always crispy and the chips are the most tasty chips ever.

“The hospitality is welcoming and all in all the best place to go for fish and chips.
“We get our fish and chips there every Friday even though we have to travel further for this fish and chip shop, because it’s the best.”
Another customer wrote: “It is the best fish and chip shop in Hull, if not in England.
“The quality is unmatched. The staff are very polite and friendly. As you enter the premises it surprises how clean the place is. Visit the place and you won’t regret it.”
