Proper stuff in lard, big portions and friendly staff. We did pong of fat the next day, but worth it for the nice grub. The friendly waiter even upped us to the special offer with bread and butter and a cup of tea!

This traditional fish and chip cafe is just like thing used to be before American and other inferior cuisines arrived in England. Enjoyed super cod and chips served with bread and butter and tea served in an unfussy yet friendly style at a reasonable price.

We always call for the fish and chips when visiting Knaresborough. The portion size is very good and the fish excellent quality.
