Taken by a friend today sunday 27th July and her son. I asked for a small haddock and chips when it came it looked more like a large piece of fish. I did manage to eat it all as it was made fresh. The fish was meaty and the batter crispy but not too much batter, I hate it when it's thick and oily. My friend and her son had a medium fish each and they both looked like whoppers, plus they had mushy peas (yuck) can't bear them and curry sauce.
I would visit this restaurant again, tho some of the waitresses didn't have a smile (if you hate your job move on).

Went mid week for lunch while in Scarborough, ordered medium haddock and chips. The chips were very good. The fish was tasty and the batter nice and crisp, but it had not been well drained and the plate had a lot of fat on it. There was no lemon or tartare sauce, which I think the menu said was included - another review said that the sauce was behind the counter. The waitress who brought my meal was pleasant. I had not collected my cutlery from the counter and she went to fetch them for me. I was not impressed by the state of her apron though, it was very dirty. The young lady on the till was fairly efficeint, but did not attempt to engage with customers. It is quite noisy so maybe conversation would be difficult, but a smile and eye contact would be good.

We were hungry when arriving in scarborough and this looked ok from the outside but i was a bit suspicious since there is a ICELAND shop next door! Between the 2 of us we had scampi chips and peas and fish chips and peas, the peas are not fresh they looked like tinned. The fish was good and so was the batter. They are the only good points. No complimentary tartare sauce, it was behind the counter. The layout of the counter was a little confusing the till was half way along and no help from the staff to say you have to collect your own knifes and forks and had to ask where they were as there was no signs. Total bill was just over £15. Totally not worth it! Ate at nearby pub same evening for less!
