Me and a couple of friends took a January day-trip to Scarborough, and were determined to have some decent fish and chips (you can’t not). Despite being the middle of winter, there was a great atmosphere in the restaurant, and we got seated immediately. We were looked after by James, who was brilliant. He went out of his way to...

Any trips to Scarborough should include this fish and chip restaurant. The upstairs also has a lovely view, especially when sunny!

Stopped off here a couple of times for some tasty chips. The fish is also good. Chippy's are quite subjective but this one ticks the boxes for me.

We ate here today after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. Managed to find a parking space right outside on the seafront, but chose to eat inside the restaurant instead. We both had cod and chips, its was worth the visit, cooked to perfection and very filling. Great service too, very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely worth a visit!
