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.

If you value outstanding fish and chips you cannot go wrong with North Bay Fisheries Scarborough. We have tried others in Scarborough and there are some good ones but none top North Bay Fisheries for everything. All from here is cooked to a exceptionally high standard. The taste makes you want to return. On top of this all members of the staff work really hard to please all the customers. Expect a small queue but this is because everyone one knows this is the best and everything is cooked fresh. Every time we have been here (regularly over several years) not once have we been disappointed.

The social distancing while queueing was very good, both outside and inside the shop. They also offer a few slots to pay in advance and collect, to avoid queueing, but these go fast so book early. The fish and chips were very nice, a good portion size (you can also have small fish or small chips), priced as expected, and everything was recyclable. The box, the forks, the paper bag, everything. Well done, excellent social responsibility. Peasholm Park is 1 minute away so buy some and enjoy your meal. Recommended.

What was good about this chip shop. Good organised social distancing whilst queuing. Order taken and payment given (card) whilst in the que. Efficient service. The fish was the biggest fish I think I have ever had (when my wife opened hers first, she thought they had made a mistake and put both fish into the one box). We ate them on a sunny afternoon in Peasholm Park. In my opinion they were the best tasting, best value (about £12 for fish and chips twice and huge portions) fish and chips I have had in years.

I rarely have fish and chips, so when I do I like it to be freshly cooked and not greasy. The fish here was beautifully cooked with a light crispy batter and the chips were cooked well and not soggy. I would certainly recommend this chippy!

North Bay Fisheries is my favourite fish and chip shop and never fails to deliver on taste and quality and this visit during a day at the Yorkshire Coast after coronavirus restrictions had been lifted was a welcome return to some kind of normality. We phoned in our order at lunchtime and arranged a collection time for later on when the premises opened and ate them on the seafront. The food was hot and tasted fantastic.

Quick Google to find a quality fish n chip shop and ended up here and we must say that the fish (cod) n chips were cooked fresh to order and tasted absolutely beaut. The batter was light and crunchy with the cod inside nice and chunky with lots of flavour. The staff have the current COVID precautions off to a tee. Queue outside, orders taken by one of the girls as you wait outside and then they have 3 in the shop max just as your order is about ready. Payments by card only so no interaction with staff at all due to screens on the counter. All staff wearing masks with social distancing adhered to at all times. 11/10 for food and service, well done North Bay Fisheries.

After being worried over venturing out to eat due to covid I was extremely impressed by the procedures put in place. All clearly marked out spacing, taking orders from outside of the shop, only letting people in to pay as their order is ready (max of 2 at a time), card only payments. All staff, even those behind a screen were in face coverings. Thank you - we'll definitely be back especially as the fish and chips are amazing too!!

These fish and chips are the best I have ever had the pleasure to eat and they are all made to order. Order at the til inside, you can now pay by card which is way easier than having to remember cash as it was cash only pre covid. Then join the queue outside and by the time you get to the front your order is ready. We didn't have to wait too long despite the lengthy queue but it was well worth it. The fish was delicious and tasty, no soggy batter. The chips were super, again not soggy. We had mushy peas as well. You could take sachets of salt and vinegar and wooden folks at no extra cost. All in a tidy box and generous portions. A small fish and chips were enough for me, the ankle biters had medium portions, again just right for them. We ate ours on the sea front and watched the tide come in. We have been visiting this little gem for years and have never been disappointed. Well worth a trip out.

Beautiful freshly cooked fish and chips. Light crispy batter, generous portions, warm friendly and efficient service, the que for fish and chips at supper time tells you how popular this fish shop is but they have their act together and even with a long que you soon get served. They take your order outside and cook it fresh, Impressed with the portions, they are very good and recommended,

The highlight of any trip to Scarborough is a visit to this fantastic take away. The haddock is cooked to order, accompanied with tasty chips, mushy peas and delicious curry sauce. The best fish & chips anywhere, can’t wait for our next visit.

Saw the queue outside this shop when we arrived the day before and thought it must be good. So grabbed a bench in Peasholm Park for the family, then walked up to the shop, which already had a queue of about 20 people, but it seemed to be moving quickly, so placed my order with the lovely lady that walks down the people waiting outside taking money and orders. Within about 15 minutes my order was ready and I collected it from a very friendly lady inside the shop and took my goodies down to my family. Everything was fabulous, from the freshest piece dog fish that had been cooked perfectly, to the homemade mushy peas, we couldn't fault a thing. All freshly cooked and the nicest fish and chips I've had anywhere. Great food, friendly staff and super quick service considering the queue! Well done :-)

No trip to Scarborough is complete until we’ve had a visit to this fantastic takeaway. Covid-19 is strictly adhered to with steps marked out so social distancing is in place. Once inside and fish and chips in hand a quick drive to North Bay so we can eat our supper overlooking the sea. To quote Tina Turner this establishment is “ simply the best “ We will return.

As others have said, be prepared to queue. However, the food is freshly cooked and the service is excellent. Someone comes round the queue to take your order and then you pay just before you collect your food. Allow 15 minutes to queue.

We had a bad experience in Alnmouth earlier in the year, when we went to a fish restaurant recommended by The Hairy Bikers on their best of British show, the Fish n Chips were awful (£32 for 2 people) We needn’t have worried this time; I had a large Haddock, my wife had a medium, with Chips and Mushy peas, the fish was cooked perfectly the batter was crispy and the Mushy Peas were very nice n home made. We can honestly say, we had the best fish n chips we've had in a long time (under £20). Next time you’re in Scarborough, near the 'Open Air Theatre' I definitely recommend you try North Bay Fisheries…..Delicious!!

Opening at 4.30pm today, the queue was really long when husband & I approached at 4.25. Oh no I thought we are going to have to wait ages but no, a very efficient queuing system was in place. Order at the till and then go outside to wait until your number is called. We were back in our car at 4.40 having been order 17. We had medium haddock and small chips each and I had the added luxury of a few batter scraps on mine. The FnC’s were really delicious and beautifully cooked. We will be back. This must be the BEST fish and chip shop in Scarborough if not the world!
