Top 10 fish and chip shops along Lincolnshire coast - as voted by you!
Next week is National Fish and Chip Day - so we asked readers to share their favourite fish and chips along the coast from Skegness to Mablethorpe.
In just one evening on our Facebook page, more than 200 of you took part - proving fish and chips remains the nation's favourite dish.
Trawlers Catch in Skegness - a Skegness Business Awards winner - was the outright winner of our Top 10 poll... and staff are delighted.
Bob Walker, on behalf of the owners, commented: "We have always thought we had the best fish and chips but it is wonderful to have the public recognition that we are doing a good job."
