My daughter has a severe dairy allergy, and doesn't eat meat, so upon arriving at 9pm just before closing, I didn't think we would be successful in getting any chips to eat. However, the staff said despite cooking in beef oil, they would get another fryer back out that they had just washed to cook some specially for her in sunflower oil, after going through all of the books to see what allergens were in the oil. They were incredibly accommodating, the portion was very generous and at such a good price! I can't praise the staff and their amazing customer service more! Would definitely recommend them and their restaurant!!

Hi Laura,
Thanks for the great comments.
"Amazing Service" - fantastic to hear you say that, as we strive for that all day everyday.
We do have a separate veg oil pan for wheat intolerant and gluten free customers.
And a batter that is wheat and gluten free, so proper fish n chips are available to those customers.
We also do have a full allergen file on site, to ensure we can advise customers who need to know or ask us.
Thanks again and come back soon.
Regards
Tony

We called at Scott's on the way back from a trip to the coast. We were going to stop in a nearby village, however they were shut (we're glad they were!) We noticed an advert on the A64 for Scott's, so we thought we'd give it a go. There is a full restaurant and a small takeaway part. The takeaway part has a few tables also for you to sit and dine at. Having an 18 month old who needs entertaining, we opted for the takeaway area. We were served by a very friendly girl who seemed enthusiastic about our job and made various suggestions and recommendations. The fish prices were average, and took 5 mins or so to be cooked. (Cooked fresh). The size of the fish were impressive and very tasty - arguably the best I have tasted recently. The chips were fluffy with a crisp coating. The little one had the children's meal which we thought at £3 was very reasonably priced. (She ate the lot too!) Overall an excellent experience. I would definitely recommend and hopefully revisit soon.

Hi and thanks for the review,
That's what we like "Proper fish n chips" - thats we strive to deliver.
All cooked to order, served by smiley friendly staff and at value prices.
8oz fish and 12oz chips is the regular mea, with other smaller and larger option available.
Plenty of room in the restaurant, plenty of high chairs & kids packs, as we love families.
As you say, we are located in an excellent location for stopping off on the way back from the coast or even York.
Look forward to your revisit.
Regards
Tony

Hello Lisa,
Wow, what "Amazing" comments and from a Chef, who knows his food.
We make our own batter several times throughout the day to ensure it is good.
We buy large fish from sustainable waters and when cut to size, ensures you get a thick meaty and flaky fish. Chips double fried to ensure crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.
Pity you are so far away, but spread the word and hope to see you again.
Well done Jamie and Tom.
Regards
Tony

Its difficult to find a really good Fish & Chip restaurant so it was a nice surprise to find Scotts. Having no recommendation we didn't know what to expect but the food was really good. The fish was very fresh, nice and white. The batter was crisp and the chips were not greasy at all. Staff were very friendly and provided good service.
What more can anyone ask for.
Highly recommended.

We have eaten several times in Scott's following long walks in North Yorkshire. Staff are always warm and welcoming and food is great. Its not just fish and chips, there are a variety of things to choose from and the ice cream is gorgeous.

We eat from the Golden Years menu and are always delighted with our chosen meals.
£9 for main meal and £1 for your pudding - how great is that??

We will no doubt be back again soon.

Hi Carol and the Barnsley Ramblers,
Fish n Chips, what a great way to end a long walk, and well earned I'm sure.
Thanks for the review and not sure if you weren't in Helmsley, as we get many walkers there?
We do have a wide menu and Golden Years menu at both restaurants, full details on our web site.
Delighted you enjoyed your visit and see you again soon.
Regards
Tony
