Two of North Yorkshire's finest fish and chip shops have been named among the best seaside spots for a chippy tea.

Betway conducted a study to find the top chippies by the sea, using an index score based on Instagram hashtags, views, and TripAdvisor rankings. The UK's top 12 have been revealed, with two Whitby establishments making the cut.

Trenchers, located on New Quay Road in Whitby, secured fourth place. Another local favourite, the renowned Magpie Cafe, came in seventh. Both venues are know for often having long queues on busy days.

For those willing to travel further afield, Scotland's Oban Seafood Hut took the crown as the best seaside chippy, reports Yorkshire Live.
