The fish was really nice, but the chips were tasteless. Chips had been reheated and were small scraps and many had black bits. Great fish, spoiled by using cheap potatoes.

Excellent food and service and worth doing the 15 mile round trip instead of eating the local ones. Fish always fantastic and fluffy. Hidden gem but so accessible. Keep up the good work

You could easily miss this place as from the outside it almost looks like a public toilet. Recognised as the best chippy in York. . And it's easy to see why. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious! Well worth a visit.

They certainly do. I think most people takeaway but it's just a bonus that they have a lovely seating area if you decide you would like to sit in.
