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.

Oh dear, oh dear, had to happen eventually I suppose...the fish was undercooked and the chips were lukewarm at best. I know what you're thinking, so why five star rating then, well a quick word with Rachael (our waitress) and the food was whisked away...and perfect replacements returned several minutes later...no fuss, no arguments. Superb service. It's not what goes wrong that matters but how it's put right...well done all concerned...we will be back.More

Went to celebrate my aunties birthday as a party of 13. The service was absolutely horrendous all meals came out at different times with us having to ask as my aunties had been completely forgotten. Drinks forgotten , and the most rude member of staff...who accused my elderly aunt 81 years old of clicking her fingers at staff (which never happened) in front of everyone then proceeded to have an argument about it at our table. When I confronted her she said “I was joking”. Myself and all my family work in hospitality and never have experienced anything like it! Totally ruined my aunties birthday , will never go again and advise anyone else to give it a miss unless you want bad service and insults from staff over mediocre fish and chipsMore

This was our first visit since covid, previously visiting every year during the Model railway exhibition. My husband and I were really looking forward to it as on our previous visits the fish and chips were lovely, however today's visit was very disappointing. We had...a bit of a wait to be seated but we didn't mind that, but after we ordered our drinks came we had a very long wait for our meal I had finished all my pot of tea by the time the fish and chips arrived. The fish and chips were only lukewarm and over cooked the fish was very dry. We ate it because we were both hungry as we had skipped breakfast so we could enjoy our lunch. When we had finished our plates were whipped away without a word from the waiter so no chance of ordering dessert even if we had wanted to. We felt very squashed in the restaurant with how the tables have been set out. So disappointing after looking forward to it so much, we will not be returning.More

Fantastic food, haddock chips, cod chips to be proud of. Beautiful decor, really love the pictures Staff very helpful Disabled friendly Car park at back and side near front First door front great but second doors unable to open without help. Please could you sort...this as very bad for Disabled Also whoever decided to put numbers on the table bottom, in my opinion quite unaware of how you thought that could work! The Staff or Customers can not work with numbers near floor. Go check this place out or get a takeaway.More

It was the takeaway at Doncaster The last time we went the chips were overcooked and the fish tasted off. We left it a year and thought we would give it another go but again the fish was horrible and the chips were like warmed...up from the day before. I don’t know how they keep in business and they will never get ours againMore

Delicious food, not just fish n chips though this is its primary function, well cooked and the service is second to none. Everything is super clean and the staff are terrific. Ps sorry Lewis couldn't manage a sweet but thanks for bringing that particular aspect...of the menu to our attention (maybe next time) Pps if you want a starter the garlic king prawns are highly recommended. ENJOY PEEPSMore

This is one of the best places in the area for fish and chips! We’ve been several times and the quality is always good. No need to book, just turn up and enjoy your meal!

The cod and chips earlier in the week were very good. However the vegetarian lasagne today was 2 out of 10. It was tasteless and the 'feta' cheese was strong tasting goats cheese. I politely complained, but was not offered any discount or compensation, eg.,...a free coffee. Disappointing...More

Lovely food, however disappointed when we all decided to order take home puddings. Had them before but in the restaurant and knew they were nice, but the take home portion size was pathetic.....it wouldn't have satisfied a child!!! About half the size of what you...would normally have in the restaurantMore

The " go to"fish restaurant in Doncaster. Cooked to perfection and even the small portion is ample. Top tip... go for the garlic prawns as a starter. You get 6 so it's ideal for 2 to share ! All served up by a delightful young...lady called Leah. Note to Leah, i put the c in like you told me to.More

Great fish and chips. Quick service . Disability friendly Salads are not the best so we tend to visit for fish and chips. Sometimes hard if 1 person in the party doesn’t fancy it
