Chip Shop Up For Second Award

Wales' best fish and chip shop has been short-listed for Take Away of the Year 2016.

Hot on the heels of being crowned the best fish and chip shop in Wales in the prestigious Fish and Chip Awards, Hikary's Fish Bar on Briton Ferry Road in Neath has been shortlisted in another major award.

Hikary's is up for Take Away of the Year in the South West Wales region of the Food Awards Wales 2016.

It made the shortlist as the result of votes from its customers, but owner Ouday Hikary was unaware his business had been put forward for the award until he received notification of his shortlisting this week.

"I'm stunned - I didn't know anyone had voted for us," he said.

"It's awesome for our customers to put us forward for this award. I can't thank them enough."

This is the second year the awards, which will take place in the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Cardiff on Monday April 18.

Last year's awards ceremony was attended by over 300 people.
