Absolutely rude as hell staff!!! As we walked in and up the stairs the girl at the top didn't let us get the top step and was just staring at us, pretty intimidating for us especially with not being from the area.. I started the conversation and asked for a table for three.. she just grunted and pointed to a... More

We visited the takeaway section of the restaurant on a Saturday lunchtime. The service was quick, especially considering it was a busy lunchtime. The fish was top quality with a crispy batter, couldn't ask for more. The chips were chunky and cooked well. It was also good value compared to some other takeaways we walked past

Decent cod and chunky chips but not the best ever. Reasonably priced, but takeaway was presented in a small open tray with no fork offered

It's 'the law' that fish and chips are consumed when at the seaside. Even though we visited at a busy time of day service was fast. slight moan that there is only non brewed condiment available - fish and chips deserve proper malt vinegar. Otherwise enjoyable.

We visited today after reading the trip advisor reviews and I have to say these are the worst Fish and chips I have had for a very long time. Very low quality tasteless cod which was very grey in colour. Will not be wasting my money in here again. Stay away there are much better fish shops in Scarborough.

Excellent customer service. I'm not a big eater and I had seen the size of the portions so I was just going to have a portion of chips. The gentlemen taking our order I think I overheard somebody call him Peter asked if I would like a child's portion instead. I did just that and it was lovely. I can... More
