“I like this place”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

Scalinis will never win any Michelin Stars but hell,who cares. This this good old fashioned basic grub but Scalinis does it brilliantly and it is so cheap they practically give it away. No doubt the food snobs might sneer at a place like this but then again I'd much prefer a nice piece of fish and chips with all the trimmings than foie gras and quails eggs anytime!

“fantastic value for money”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

I have been eating at this chippy for years now and still can't believe how good it is for the price... you won't find any takeway prices this cheap that offer such good quality....restaurant prices are pretty good too. Staff are always really friendly with fast service (when there aren't big queues)..... great spot for a quick lunchtime meal.
Trip advisor photo shown is not the one on Ravendale Street though.. it is the inferior takeaway-only one in Brigg..... don't get confused between the two.

“never disappointed.”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

I visit here at least twice a month for fish/chips and peas...my fiancee has steak pie and chips. It never falls short on quality...always hot and well presented. It can be a little cramped at times and if you want a table go early.Theres always a queue!
It desperately needs central heating for winter...and perhaps a few less tables to give diners more elbow room.
ITS A FISH N CHIP RESTAURANT. NOT CLASSY DINING..so dont go expecting silver service and you wont be disappointed.
Just one really negative point...PLEASE STOP THOSE ELDERLY PEOPLE BRINGING THEIR DOG IN A BAG into the restaurant...its not hygenic...and very offputting . Ive seen it three times this year...staff do nothing about it..........

“OK.....but only OK”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Called in for a change with my Dad for lunch.......it was my first visit, but my Dad used to visit regularly with my late Mother & they sang it's praises....so expectations were high.

Walked in to find it was like a pensioners day trip was there based on the age of the customers ..... space was tight & it was a bit like a transport cafe for decor.

The food when it arrived was OK....not the greatest chips & the fish was a bit bland..

Perhaps my expectations were too high.....but I've not been back since

“Not the best chip shop in town”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

People kept saying how this was a good fish and chip shop.
However, when I visited it, the chips were like cardboard and barely warm.
Would not be going back
