This is an average fish and chip restaurant. The menu is pretty standard, the service is good and quick, the food is good.

Visited Scarborough on Saturday evening and stopped here for fish and chips for tea. They were excellent, hot, crispy and served by a lovely friendly girl. Definitely one of the best we've had recently.

On our regular visits to Scarborough we normally visit the best fish and chip shop up at north bay which is a class above. On this occasion however that one was closed so thinking were right next to the sea, the fish and chips should be good let's try this place. How wrong were we! The fish was greasy with... More

As a bloke who lives in Hull , giving a chippy 5 stars speaks for itself. We know what good chip shops are and this place is the Dogs bollongers. I go every time we visit Scarborough.

Popped into this restaurant for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Reasonably priced and the Fish and Chips were very good, although very busy due to the school holidays the service was quick and friendly, we live in Scarborough and will definitely eat at Winking Willy's again.

Such a pretty building, especially at Christmas. Shows that the owners care about your experience, and this carries through to the food. Although the prices have just risen considerably, their Fish and Chips is still good value, and next to their sister shop, the best on the seafront.

There were 13 of us in total and the staff were very accommodating to arrange tables for us. The service was very prompt and the staff very polite and friendly. The meals were excellent quality, size and value for money. Chips cooked in Beef Dripping and tasted delicious.

We have tried their 'eat out' food previously, and decided to give inside a try. Fish was excellent, hot and with crispy batter. Chips were a mixed lot, some good size and hot, some very small, and cool. probably topped up from different compartment. What really let the establishment down was the bread and alleged butter. The bread was dry... More
