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.

Had takeaway cod, chips and home made pie. At a price of £5:95 for the pie I was expecting a deep filled luxury pie. WRONG. A pile of stewed steak with an inedible pastry lid. Served in a cardboard box that didn’t hold it well...by the time I got it home. Cod was also thin and tasteless. Definitely gone downhill. It’s always been the best chippy in the area. I will leave it a couple of months before returning and hopefully put the poor experience down to one off.More

My friends and I (except Chloe, she’s simply a colleague) went for a nice Fish and Chips to Whitbys. It was in fact in Rotherham, and not Whitby. However the food was scrumptious ! I particularly enjoyed the texture of the battered sausage. I washed...it down with a nice slurp of Coke. I will be returning in the near futureMore

Went to takeaway and just wanted scampi & chips and a cod on its own. When I got back to the car I had a look at the cod. The box it was in I thought was empty, it was that light. I took it...back to takeaway and asked if it was proper size and was told it was. I said I had seen bigger goldfish at fair and that I wouldn't be going back ever. I have used Whitbys ever since it opened and have posted both good and bad reviews but this occasion was by far the worst. £6.85 for a cod that didn't match half the size they were when Whitbys opened.More

Omg! Consistently giving me a perfect Gluten-free meal. I've said this time and again, that It's so rare to find a decent batteted fish and chip meal when we're out. We think nothing of adding 20 minutes to our journey, for Whitby's superb battered Haddock...and chips. Thank you so much again you genius chef. We live in Birmingham but will go out of our way for this delicious treat.More

A big Thank You to Whitbys, Catcliffe who fed 35 members of the Barnsley and District Multiple Sclerosis Support Group yesterday, 20th January, It cannot have been easy working with such a large party in a packed restaurant but you did quickly and efficiently especially...Michelle who was extremely organised with a continuous smile on her face. The food was up to its usual high standard, hot and everyone eating at the same time. It’s the second year running the group have visited and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.More

Not been for a couple of years as I thought the food had gone down hill but today's visit from the takeaway was beautiful. the chips were cooked to perfection and the quality of the haddock was very good. It would of been 5 stars...but the size of the haddock was probably the smallest iv ever had from any fish and chip shop would say it was like a mini fish but apart from that it was gorgeousMore

Should have booked. The car park was very busy but ample space. The place was packed but the receptionist said 15 minutes and it was bang on! We had drinks at the bar while we waited. The drinks were a reasonable price. The selection of...draught was limited to a Spanish larger and a British beer. We were shown to our table and our order was taken promptly. The regular cod which was big was perfectly cooked in crispy batter and the chips were perfect. The mushy peas were good. The staff were all really efficient and pleasant. We will return.More

Been going here on a regular basis most Saturdays for the last year or so, over the last 3 months have noticed the quality service & product has been varied to say the least. We know what it can be like so accepted the blips...but no more! todays gripes cod & chips half the chips came hot half cold on the same plate. The fruit in Knickerbockers Glory yet again tainted by onion! experienced this twice before. So sadly that’s it no more chances.More

Between 3 of us we ordered haddock, 2 cod and 3 x chips. Waitress no idea which one was the haddock when she brought them to the table, had to go back and check. The haddock was tiny even tho I ordered their largest size,...and it was dried up either it had been overcooked or left under a heater for a long time. Chips were luke warm. No one came to check our food was okay. Did they know what they had given us was of a poor standard? When paying I complained but the attitude was - so what? Not even an apology? All round terrible dining experience. I will counter this poor review by saying I have been to their sister site in Doncaster and the fish and chips there have always been tremendous but unfortunately this was not and I wont ever be going back.More

My friend and I popped in here one Friday evening about 5.30pm. We had not booked and when we arrived it was busy but we were seated quickly. We arrived at the right time since a few moments later it was packed out and the...queue was long, The waiting staff were lovely and very friendly but also very efficient. I had the scampi starter and this was massive and really filling. My friend had the prawn cocktail and this also was big and tasty. I had cod and my friend had haddock for main course and both were decent sizes and the batter was cooked well. Chips were perfect and not greasy and the mushy peas and curry sauce tasty. The only “complaint” is the outrageous price of a slice of bread and butter. I do think 50p per slice is a bit high. Other than this it was a fantastic visit and highly recommended.More

We are regular visitors to this restaurant & enjoy the food here. On visiting today we were very disappointed by the extremely poor service we received. On arrival we were eventually seated after the lady taking several payment had asked staff to seat us 3...times. We then waited for someone to take our order & eventually I asked a passing waitress if we could order. She took our order & repeated it correctly back to us. We waited patiently for our drinks, which arrived with the food & plonked at one end of the table!! The waiter serving my father in law dropped one of his cod bites on the table & proceeded to pick it up with his fingers & serve it to my father in law!! My husbands meal did not arrive, so I said we are one cod bites meal short. It still did not arrive. I was absolutely flabbergasted that the meal had been served to my father in law & asked him if he wanted me to return it, he said no it was ok. Now if it had been my meal it would have been swiftly returned. Another waitress came over to my husband and said are you a meal short, I replied we were and we had informed staff of this. I was still in a state of shock that the waiter had served my father in law food that had been dropped & put back on the plate with his fingers, so I explained what had happened to this waitress and said I found it totally unacceptable & unprofessional!! She agreed it was unacceptable, apologised & went off to order husbands food & speak to the waiter. By the time it came we had practically finished our meal. I ordered another drink and when this came it was again placed out of my reach at the other end of the table. The waitress did come back & say she had spoken to the manager & we would not be charged for father in laws meal & offered me a free drink. We have never received such poor service at this restaurant and were extremely dissatisfied with our visit today. I have given 2* because the food itself was lovely but service let them down badly!!More
