“Best fish and chips in Bridlington !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

We always eat at Captain Scotts when visiting Bridlington for our RSPB boat trips. The upstairs restaurant is a bit naff but the fish and chips are the best I have ever eaten. The fish , chips , slice of bread & "butter " (marge ) and cup of tea for approx. £6.90 are a bargain. The fish is always white and flaky covered in a light and crispy batter. They offer all sorts of dishes and pensioners discounts etc.

“Good quality, good value fish and chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

It's an unpretentious fish and chip cafe so cleanliness, quality and value are all that really count. The fish is certainly good quality and the batter crisp and light. The chips are proper 'chippie' chips straight out of childhood memories. All cooked to order with a lovely, hot cup of rosie to wash it down and light on the wallet.

“Appalling service by 2 inexperienced staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

Our favourite fish and chip shop and have driven to Bridlington just because we fancied some but will never go again - staff rude and could not be bothered to cook items ordered - fryer actually told server "I don't know how to cook it, just tell them we haven't got any!"- walked out in disgust. Such a shame as it has always been a fantastic fish shop.

“Best chippy in Brid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2013

I am from Hull so have been to Bridlington hundreds of times. And of course when you go to the seaside you MUST have fish and chips. Well, Brid has them by the bucketload so which to chose ? For us, it is always Captain Scott's. We get them takeaway and walk 60 yards to sit on the front and look out to sea. Always fresh fish with the lightest of batters. Great chips and good price too. Plus the staff are always friendly and polite. Lovely.
