“Superlative Fish and Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Probably the best Fish and Chips in Yorkshire (which therefore means in the World). Better than the fabled (though fading?) Magpie Café in Whitby; better than Blakeleys in Brighouse. Eaten out of the paper; shared with the dogs (its OK - I removed the batter and no chips for them!) on a glorious day in the Dales - the quintessential English street food.

Chips were crispy on the outside, soft inside; Fish - batter was crisp and dry; and the fish was moist, flaky and full of sea-fresh flavour. Just, absolutely marvelous.

“Never Puts a Foot Wrong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

Called here numerous times on the way into the Dales and we have made it a tradition with our Explorer Scouts to stop there when we are heading up to walk the Three Peaks.
Food is always good, never flustered when 25+ teenagers turn up and lovely pickled eggs!
Full marks.

Excellent Haddock & Chips, they were really hot & very tasty. We called on the way home from the lake district. Would certainly call again.
Staff very helpful.

Outstanding quality fish and chips, you can take away or eat in at the adjacent café, you won't find better.

Really excellent. The fish is really fresh and batter crispy and light. Absolutely yummy! Forget the diet if you are passing through here and go for it!
