I'm not old enough to order the pensioners special (fish and chips) but it would have been a better size portion for me! The fish was beautifully creamy and fresh tasting and the batter light. The chips plentiful and also very good. I was a little disappointed in the garden peas, but was full well before I had cleared my... More

We called into Thompson's on the way back from the coast. The menu was comprehensive but as it is a fish restaurant I decided to go with the fish pie. I can honestly say this was the best fish pie I have ever had - and that includes home made! It was accompanied by a side salad, peas AND a... More

Forget Wetherby whaler, Thomsons are premier league. Quality, quantity are a rare pairing these days, but Thomsons offer it, with excellent service as well. Good parking but compromised by the difficulty in exiting during peak times, eastbound, due to traffic volumes

The only decision I have ever had to make at a fish restaurant is " shall I have cod or haddock". Well that all changed on Saturday evening when myself and my family visited Thompson's Fish Restaurant. WHAT A CHOICE. !! We decided to try something new and I have to say, we were not disappointed. Presentation and the quality... More

We ate in the cafe / restaurant, Elaine our waitress was efficient and understanding and after all our visits we found a smaller potion offering for my elderly mother. The food portions are massive so don't go wild and have a starter, save yourself for the homemade trifle in fantastic glasses. We will be back !

We call in for a meal on a lunchtime at least once a week. The food is amazing and always freshly cooked, my husband will always have the Fish and Chips, but occasionally I will try something different on their menu, of which there is plenty of choice and never been disappointed, always first class. The staff are very efficient... More

First an apology, for those who have no transportation! this establishment is on the A64 outside York so transportation is a definite requirement. However having said that it is well worth the effort. the service is excellent, the the quality is excellent and the cost acceptable. Although there is a restaurant available I believe for an authentic experience the outside... More

I heard this place was good so went for lunch with a friend. I was not disappointed and I can say the food is excellent! If you are on the A64 on your way to the coast it is the perfect place to stop and eat! If you are a local it is a lovely lunch with plenty to choose... More

Me and my family visited Thompson's after a family day out for some tea. This was not our first visit and as always we were dealt with quickly by a very polite and helpful member of staff. The food is always delivered fresh, hot and with a smile! Thank you for a great service and we will be back again... More
