“50 year search ends in Pickering back street”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

I have spent the last 50 years searching for the perfect fish and chips and finally found them in Pickering!! Never mind the Crow or whatever it is called in Whitby, this is in a different league. Crisp chips, cooked perfectly, crispy pieces of batter and the most divine fish I have tasted in 50 years. Absolutely superb. Thank you for fulfilling my dream - I'll be back!!!

We like to think of it as a quite and quaint little corner, rather than a back street.
But we appreciate the comment, that is for sure.
Say hello when you come through again and we'll tell you all about what's looking golden and cripsy.
Hint: Handmade Onion rings are amazing!
Thanks again.
Paul

“The best fish and chips in the area”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

Having visited Pickering on holiday for years, this is the first time we have had their fish and chips. They were beautiful, the best ones we have had in years, wish we had tried them years ago

“Lovely Fish and Chips”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

The fish and chips were very nice, fresh and very tasty. Located in the heart of Pickeing and easy to find from the main road out of Pickering. By far the best Fish and Chips in Pickering.

“The best in Town”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

The best fish and chips and friendly service in the Town. Only the fish shops in Whitby can match it for quality and value.

“Chips on the go”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

Visited today after following signs from centre of Pickering. Good value and kindly split the chip portion between us as full portion too big for when we were eating. Fish lovely and overall good value.
