This is what Harpers Jumbo Haddock looks like if you were wondering! Maybe they ran out of huge haddock, this was more like two big uns, still, same sort of thing - fish, and lots of it! Chips are good. Not amazing imo, but good. The burger was of good quality (had this the other day, I wasn't still peckish!)... More

Having tried many fish shops/cafes around scarborough I've not really found one I'd happily return to or recommend. Initially surprised by the appearance but friendly helpful staff soon had us settled and orders taken. Food was with us in good time, seemed very fresh and cooked to perfection. Can't wait for the next visit

I visited harpers just randomly and instead of fish and chips I fancied something different they do a wide range of other meals as well as their famous fish and chips. I ordered the chicken salad it was amazing definitely worth a try I asked for the chefs name whilst paying my bill and I was told his name was... More

Had a lovely meal here, they catered very well for 4 adults and 4 children.We were seated promptly and activity sheets provided for the children. The fish was perfectly cooked and the chips were the best I've had. I don't really like greasy chips and these were perfect for me. Good portions of mushy peas/ curry sauce too which is... More

Called for lunch whilst en route to our holiday accommodation. When entering the building (I was still Coming through the door), my daughter was asked by a female member of staff ' table for how many'. Taken aback how abrupt she appeared to be, my daughter replied and then was quickly asked 'where do you want to sit'. The restaurant... More

Having used the take away on numerous occasions and always had delicious food we finally decided to have an eat in meal. The restaurant interior was warm, clean and comfortable. We were greeted and seated straight away and handed menus by a friendly waitress. Our orders were taken and advice given to get best value. The food arrived relatively quickly... More

Whilst staying in the area we had a takeaway from Harper's and it was very tasty indeed. Two of our party had fish, one had battered sausage and I had chicken bites. There were 6 chicken bites and they were large chunks of chicken covered in a very tasty coating. We all had a portion of chips with our meals... More

Firstly place was freezing cold took ages to take order and ages for drinks and food to come. Drinks over priced. Food was above average but we were on verge of leaving having to wait so long and be so cold. It wasnt a one off either always takes ages to be served

Gotta say the place is spotless, the waiting staff are very friendly and the food is very good indeed Plenty of choice, quality service I think the only thing to let it down slightly and I must emphasise slightly is I thought it was a little overpriced Hey, a great meal, a great setting but just a little pricey considering...
