“Consistent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

As fish and chips go, this take out and cafe have consistently produced tasty meals for a good few years now. We have tried others in the area but keep coming back to Kingfisher.

“Prices gone up.. Portions got smaller”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

After going to kingfisher for years and years I am very disappointed the last 3 visits. Portions have got smaller, yet prices have gone up! Fish is wet and soggy, sticks to paper and chips are undercooked.

“Best in Britain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

I've been going here for 15 years and it's always great. There's usually somewhere to sit down in the spacious restarant side and service is pleasant and quick. Generally go there at lunchtime as we're travelling up or down the country and it has never let us down.

“Excellent fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

This had got to be the best fish and chips in Yorkshire.. we travel about 4 miles and pass 3 fish and chip shops to get to Kingfishers fish and chips.. Well worth it..

The people are really friendly too..
