Stopped in here on a whim. Won't be returning. Had the Wagyu burger (raw meat in the middle of the burger) and the salmon (undercooked). The chips were quite good but the wait for our food was very long (didn't appear to be very busy)...More

Had an excellent Barramundi and the best Calamari rings in the last couple of years... Not cheap but absolutely worth it.

Looking for a place to have Fish & Chips in Newcastle, Scotties was a good find. The batter on the fish was light and fluffy and the chips were crisp and delightful. Prices were reasonable and had this very interesting Jamaican Lager
