Santa is sitting down for a fish and chip meal at Bizzie Lizzie's in Skipton for 'Tea with Santa', their annual Christmas event that allows diners to meet the big man before the big day!

Customers can enjoy award-winning fish and chips, or anything else from the Bizzie Lizzie's menu that includes chicken burgers, fish goujons and sausages, before Santa arrives with an age-appropriate present for each child.

Staff at the restaurant also get into the Christmas spirit, dressing as elves and encouraging the singing of Christmas carols to bring Santa out of hiding!
