Iconic fish and chip shop chain Harry Ramsden’s, which was established in West Yorkshire, has been acquired by a competitor.

Deep Blue Restaurants has bought the Harry Ramsden’s brand from the Boparan Restaurant Group (BRG).

The 90-year-old Harry Ramsden brand, which includes outlets in 34 locations across the UK, Ireland and Malaysia, started in Guiseley in West Yorkshire and has since grown to a global name.
