A fish and chip shop in north Norfolk has been named among the top 20 chippies in the UK. 

Situated on Cromer seafront, Downstairs at No.1 has been listed as a top-notch chip shop by The Observer. 

The business has been celebrated for serving some of the "freshest and most delicious" seafood in the UK, with cod, haddock and plaice available on its takeaway menu.

The downstairs restaurant serves all the chip shop classics alongside spiced cockle popcorn, chicken wings and halloumi fries.  

Diners can enjoy a more refined menu at Upstairs at No.1 including scallops, crab mousse and tuna tartare. 

No.1 is owned by Galton Blackiston, who runs Michelin-star awarded Morston Hall, along with business partners Spencer Gray and Tracy Blackiston. 

In November, BAFTA-winning actress Suranne Jones visited the business and posted a photo on her Instagram account, which has more than half a million followers, from the restaurant. 

She tucked into a meal of battered fish and chips and she captioned it with a heart emoji.
