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.

They have strong forks for take out too. Now I know it's here, will recommend yo others and use again...on my way to or from the coast. Sorry, no pics. It's all gone haha.More

These are the best fish and chips I've had. Huge portions, 1 potion of chips is more than enough for 2 people. Friendly staff

Visited here for a stop off and sat inside for the food. Sausage and chips with gravy sausage was soggy , chips greasy , gravy watery. Was a poor portion for a large and that’s with me asking for more chips! Wouldn’t go back and...wouldn’t recommend.More

10/10 experience at the Scrap box. I was feeling down so decided to go and get some Haddock and chips, on arrival I saw they had plenty of parking - I went in where I was greeted with the smell of haddock and chips. This...was amazing - I went to the till and the server was very pleasant and understood my needs as a customer - Annie I believe she was called I enjoyed the haddock and chips before driving back to York. - the experience was very pleasant and I left full. Would I return, 100%More

Wow fantastic fish and chips! The best we have ever had. Of late we have been sick of being ripped off with the great British meal . Either not haddock as stated and very very thin tasteless and greasy or the large fish is the...size of a large pea (slight exaggeration but come on!!) beyond unbelievable prices sometimes .. Not here, great howge sized fish truly meaty and coming off the sides of the trays.just how we love it chunky very tasty and light and not one ounce of grease but not dry either !! Perfect We had been wanting to try here for some time so a trip to the outlet on the way back was a great time to try finally .. Can’t understand with all your awards (well deserved ) that you haven’t won UK fish and chip shop of the year because you deserve to be! The howge fish was £7.95 (regular £6.50 we will try that the next time )with one portion of chips one peas one bottle of coke and the obligatory scraps £21.95. Still an a meal expensive to previous years but in the financial climate etc it can only be worth it if the goods are top quality and trust me these fish and chips are definitely worth it 1000% ..scuse my pic I had started to eat but wanted to show the big flakes of fish and the chips Where lovey to all cooked fresh to orderMore

We have passed this on several occasions and from the outside it looks decidedly shoddy but don't let it put you off. it was AMAZING, lovely and clean and the fish and chips were absolutely delicious. The fish was so unbelievable. And the staff were...incredibly friendly and chatty. We will definitely call in again when we are passing although might share.More
