Delighted owner Derek Carr said: “I’m very pleased, it’s the first time I’ve entered.

“I first started when I was 14 years old when I was working in the Wetherby Whaler.

“I took over Oliver’s in 2001 but I’d been the manager for 17 or 18 years before that.

“I have done other competitions and won them before but I didn’t expect to win it. I was delighted just to be in the top ten!
