Hannah Hyde, who runs Diss Ironworks alongside her husband Matthew, said: "It's fantastic to win and we were really pleased because it was quite unexpected.

"The past few years have been challenging for the economy but despite that we've seen some really strong growth in the market and gone from strength to strength."

Having been founded in 1973, Diss Ironworks beat about 60 Bertazzoni retailers across the UK including department store John Lewis to the top prize.

Mrs Hyde puts her firm's success down to personnel.

She said: "We have a very good team here and have build up a great reputation locally too, which has helped.
