A Laurieston chippie has made it on the list showcasing the best and most talked about fish and chip shops in the UK.

HolidayLettings, a TripAdviser company has posted a list of the top 12 off-the-beaten-path chippies online and Laurieston’s own Benny T’s has been included.

Owner Mark Mulholland said: “It is obviously good news and is fantastic for Benny T’s.

“It is always great to hear about our shop getting recognised, from local level to national coverage, it all helps.”

With Benny T’s growing in popularity, Mark is sometimes wary of companies emailing him asking about his business.

“You have to be careful but with HolidayLettings being a branch of TripAdviser I knew it was something I could trust and hopefully it helps bring even more customers through our doors.”

The shop, which has been feeding Falkirk for 11 years, is also listed as the best place in the town for a fish supper, by The Best of Falkirk.

HolidayLettings described Benny T’s as more than your average fish and chips shoe because of the varied menu, with locally sourced produce, meaning customers know they are eating the freshest food.

Mark said: “I am incredibly happy for our staff. They work so hard and deserve all the praise for making Benny T’s so good.”

Out of the 12 restaurants chosen, Benny T’s was the only Scottish one. The list can be viewed at
