“Still the best”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Been for the seniors fish and chips today as a birthday treat. Once again the fish was superb, brilliant white and cooked to perfection. Such a clean friendly place I would always make this first choice for fish, although they do an awful lot more.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This was our 3rd visit to this restaurant. Definitely the best fish & chips I have had for a long time. If you don't want fish & chips has quite a varied menu (steaks, burgers etc) My husband statement on the 1st visit - I'll just have the regular fish as the puddings look good! Even after the 3rd visit he hasn't managed a pudding.

“The quality is out of this world!!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We've been stopping off here on the way to Scarborough and back for years and have found nowehere else in the entire UK that comes anywhere close to it. It's not cheap but you pay for what you get, immensley good quality fish.
The highlight of our trip's to Scarborough.

“Great place to stop by on the home”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Came here for Dinner on the way home from Leeds. Firstly looked at the menu before sitting down. Staff were talking to each other for a little while before one girl recognised us. Ordered 2 Haddock and Chips with peas including bread and butter with tea or coffee all for £9.95 each. I also asked for a glass of cold tap water but the waitress brought back warm water. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, very clean. Staff were friendly, smart and well mannered. Value was reasonable for the portion you got. It's a great place to stop by whilst traveling.
