Description: A fabulous family friendly, award winning fish and chip cafe. Just voted Best Fish and Chip shop 2013. Either take away or eat in. With 80 covers there is plenty of room, coach parties welcome. We aim to provide the best fish and chips available from sustainable and local sources at a value price. Gluten free and veggie chip shop chips. Served with a smile. Our premises are not your usual fish and chip cafe and are a pleasurable and inspiring place to spend some time.

Whilst in Helmsley we visited Scott's fish and chip shop which was recommended to us by family. We ordered fish bites and chips to which was cooked to order and a drink each. The food was absolutely delicious, we couldn't fault it, the fish was very tasty, the batter done to perfection and the staff very friendly indeed, what more could anyone ask for? For those who have not been we highly recommend it, we are certainly going back there when we are in the area next, can't wait!!!

Had some friends over and went for Fish and Chips as usual with them, Got 4 whales (Haddock) and chips in a box of gorgeous quality and freshness, freshly cooked and such beautiful batter, Had a couple of sausages and some curry sauce too and both were gorgeous. The Curry Sauce gets a special mention as does the fish. Just sublime - If you haven't been - YOU must GO its gorgeous - can eat in or take away like we do as we live near by, Always good, fresh HIGH Quality ingredients and just fab

Hello Shari,
Thanks for the great review.
"Gorgeous as always" - delighted you are talking about the food and NOT any of the staff!!
Can't claim the curry sauce is home made, but it is good.
Maybe try Chef Shane's home made fish cake next time - that is wonderful.
Freshly cooked, high quality, value for money and big smiley friendly service - thats what we do and aim for overtime for every customer.
Thanks again
Tony

My daughter and I visited the restaurant last week and I have to say it is even better than before. The staff are super friendly and the choice is fantastic!
We both had the Captain Scotts £9.95 special with tea and bread. I made room for the treacle tart with custard and Jess had the locally made black forest gateaux.
Well done to Scotts for going from strength to strength and I hope to come back on my 75th birthday.

Hi Jenny,
Thank you for the great comments and we hope to see you back for your 75th.
Not sure if this was maybe your 74th or not?
All fish cooked fresh to order and the special is not only great value, but hopefully allows for a pudding?
Spread the word and come back soon.
Thanks again
Tony
