Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Walked past early afternoon and saw a lady eating a fish sat outside, this was on my mind all day. Decided I was having some of that for my tea. First time I had called in and was greeted by a lovely lady Ho took...our order and continued with conversation. Fish, chips and curry absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend.More

Staying locally in mid November, we phoned an order through. When we got there, it was all ready to collect. The Haddock was perfect, especially as there was no skin and the chips cooked in beef fat were amazing. Even the mushy peas were different...to our home offering I'm told, as I do not indulge. A treat for us as southerners. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.More

We had a very good meal in the restaurant. The restaurant is clean and welcoming, there are tables outside if you want to eat a takeaway there. We were served promptly by a pleasant waitress, and our food did not take long to arrive. We...had the smaller portion of fish and chips, the fish was really good. I would recommend this place.More

Having travelled down from Scotland, we fancied a fish supper. Nearest place to where we were staying was Helmsley so we headed there. Unfortunately, both takeaways only served cod/hake & we prefer haddock. We phoned The Lemon Tree & a lovely lady confirmed they did....Freshly cooked for us, ( some scraps very kindly added). All I can say is delish. Succulent piece of fish, proper chippy chips. Probably the best I've ever eaten. Lovely staff, lovely food. Highly recommend.More

Have been many times over the years. With my wife or on my own. When the latter I like to have fish bites ( or bits ). Haddock of course. Why would you have anything else. We called on spec last week, went for the...special medium sit down haddock. With peas / beans and bread and butter and tea thrown in. Cooked to order, everything fresh, hot and served in nice reply pleasant surroundings. Owners are very attentive and always welcoming. We will be back.More

I ordered take-away fish and chips for 5.00pm. I only had a couple of minutes to wait and the meal was very good. No fat/ oil in bottom of container and chips were nice and crisp. Batter was just right and fish fresh and tasty.

The ordering by phone and timed collection process was very easy and the counter staff friendly. Nicely cooked cod in crispy batter was the highlight, but the chips were a bit of a let down... very soft and soggy which was a shame as the...spuds were of good quality. The mushy peas were also quite good. Would I give them another chance? Yes.More
