An eatery near Glasgow was visited by East Renfrewshire’s MP following its success at the Scottish Fish and Chips Awards.

Alpino’s on Barrhead's Cross Arthurlie Street was named ‘Best Dine in Restaurant’ and ‘Best Family Business’ after a public vote.

Politician Kirsten Oswald tabled an Early Day Motion (EDM) at Westminster to mark the firm’s win.

She presented owners Alka and Tarsem Kumar with the motion when she went along to Alpino's premises last Friday.

Kirsten Oswald MP told the Barrhead News: “I was delighted to learn that Alpino’s Fish and Chips had been named as the winner of both the ‘Best Dine in Restaurant’ and the ‘Best Family Business’ categories at the Scottish Fish and Chips Awards.

“It was excellent to visit Alpino’s and hear all about their success and the lovely response from local customers to the news of their award.

“I was happy to present them with a copy of the Early Day Motion I tabled at Westminster celebrating their achievement.

“In East Renfrewshire, we are very lucky to have so many fantastic local businesses like Alpino’s, and we should support them at every opportunity.

“Local businesses are the lifeblood of our high streets and make a significant contribution to our communities.”

The Scottish Fish and Chips Awards celebrates culinary expertise, commitment to traditional cooking, and exemplary customer service.

Several other East Renfrewshire-based businesses were shortlisted for awards, including Kadir’s Fish and Chips who were shortlisted for the Best Chippy Award.

L’arco Takeaway was shortlisted for Best Family Business and Best Delivery Service, while CATCH Fish and Chips won the Best Chippy West category.

Tarsem said: “I am delighted to have received with award and it has been fantastic to see so many people visit the restaurant to sample the award-winning fish and chips for themselves.”
