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.

Came in for lunch today just to give it a try after the recommendation from my mother in law and it didn't disappoint. The food was lovely and reasonably priced, and our waitress Sia was absolutely fantastic. Very welcoming and attentive and nothing was too...much trouble! Highly recommend and we will definitely return 😀More

As a regular visitor of this restaurant and the food is always delicious and I can’t fault it the fish bits special is a bargain. But the last couple of time we have been there is a member of staff in the restaurant that make...you feel uncomfortable and that everything is too much trouble. Doesn’t really speak or have a smile on her face. Hasn’t put us of going but it’s not the usual warm ans welcoming experience I have been used to in the past.More

Booked the restaurant for a change, as only ever had take away from here before. Food was great and good value for money. Ordered the fish bits special which included medium fish, chips and a sauce. Fish was still big for a medium size. Another...person had the homemade pie which was delicious. Staff were helpful and friendly and served us quickly. Establishment was clean and the chairs were comfortable. Cost £71 for 3 main meals, 3 sides, 2 extras, 3 desserts and 5 drinks. As we were leaving we were even given bunches of Daffodils as it was Mother’s Day. Pictured - Fish Bits Special and Sticky Toffee pudding.More

Sour of the minute decision to come for tea and so glad we came. Both had Fish Bits Special and couldn't fault it. Cooked to perfection. Fish was large, chunky, white and the batter was nice and crispy. Generous portions. Been several times before COVID...but this was the first time since. Definitely come againMore

It’s the one and only place to enjoy food and association in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere in Doncaster. We ordered many different items off the simplified menu, and it’s a step forward in the right direction. To cut a long story short, everything...that we ordered was above and beyond the expectation. Once again I ordered the large cod meal, and on this occasion there was a vast improvement on portion size. Some in our group said I wouldn’t be able to finish it because of the ginormous size and they were wrong. Let’s not forget here, that it’s the custom service that really shone through on this visit, and the waitress named Oana from Romania demonstrated this wonderfully! Maybe consider including the mushy peas, bread and butter, pot of tea included in the large fish meal.More

It’s been a while since we frequented this legendary fish and chip restaurant. One of the friends had traveled from India to stay in Doncaster for a few days. All the others ordered the fish chip special which was very good value for money, although...I decided to try the large cod meal. Considering it was more expensive than the specials, the large meal could have been more substantial. Maybe more chips, mushy peas, and pot of tea could be inclusive of the price. Although feedback from the friends very positive on taste, quality, venue, and service. I’ve been singing the praises of this landmark restaurant far and wide for many years, and look forward to more visits to come. The £10 tip expressed our appreciation.More

My friend and I had a meal in the restaurant at 5:30pm and although it was busy, there were still plenty of free tables. We had large cod & large haddock, one with chips and one with onion rings😧. The fish was fresh and very...tasty, the chips OK and the fresh battered onions rings lovely. The cost for the meal was reasonable for a sit down waitress service that was excellent. I had mushy peas and was disappointed - they were sloppy and lacked taste - but that could be how Yorkshire folk like them. Will definitely eat there again when next in Donny.More
