“Good Fish & Chips”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We recently ate lunch at Winking Willys in Scarborough. It was a hot day and you have the option of getting a takeaway or eating inside. There was a long queue in the takeaway so we opted to eat inside. We sat upstairs and were promptly handed menus to choose. I was with my girlfriend and son, and we all ordered the regular portion of fish and chips, a couple of rounds of bread and butter and side of gravy.
Our order came out pretty quickly and they were decent sized portions too. Service was pleasant enough - even though it was busy when we were in the staff tended to all the customers professionally.
Once we finished we asked for the bill where you pay downstairs on the way out.

“I want haddock in yorkshire not cod”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Close to closing time but in time to eat, I ordered haddock but we all got served cod instead, overpriced for the large fish I recieved was smaller than the standard at our local chippy which is a third of the price!! Disappointed as previously enjoyed my visit

“Tea”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We sat on the outside balcony on a glorious hot sunny day at 430pm to have our tea. We were not plagued by the seagulls at all! They were too interested in the people down below in the street! I had battered Monkfish which Scarborough is known for. It was delicious!! It was a huge portion as were the chips that came with it! My partner had salad and chips which he thoroughly enjoyed. Efficient service and friendly staff.
