A fish and chip shop and a hotel restaurant have both been recognised for great food and service in the East Midlands Food and Drink Awards.

Both venues were celebrating after being selected as victors in the awards.

Supreme Inns at Bicker Bar took the prize for best hotel restaurant, and Linfords at Market Deeping, praised for the best fish and chips and best customer care.

The winners were voted for by members of the public.

Celebrity chef Aldo Zilli hosted the awards, which were held at Greetham Valley Hotel, Golf and Conference Centre.

More than 180 guests attended the awards ceremony and enjoyed a night of fabulous food prepared by the chefs at Greetham Valley.

Mr Zilli said: “This has been an excellent night.

“The people here really care about food and customer service. They are my kind of people.”
