The cod was epic! Highly recommended place to grab fish and chips, mushy peas was spot on as well. Reasonable as well at 8.50 for cod and chips.

As it was such a nice sunny but cold day we decided to have a day trip to Scarborough from our home in Sheffield. We have been to this fish restaurant on a number of occasions and once again decided to have lunch there. As usual the meal was excellent, as was the service. Well done!

Went here to grab something to eat with the family and we were seated by a member of staff who was very rude and not friendly. When our order was taken it took 35 min to arrive when the longest thing to cook was the chips which should take no longer than 8 minutes!!! The chips came scrapy and they... More

Mother Hubbards have been here for over twenty years, as far as I know under the same ownership. Great value for money and top quality Fish & Chips. Nearly half the price of a famous restaurant in Whitby, just better overall, come to Scarborough instead!!

We visited at lunchtime in the middle of the week and we got in just at the right time as it was popular with local pensioners having the "pensioners special" meal. The service was friendly and efficient, our order was taken quickly. We ordered cod and chips for two, along with hot drinks. Our food was freshly cooked and of... More

I think it was about £8 for fish and chips, bread and butter and a hot drink. Very tasty, hot, great friendly service, clean tables and didn't wait long. Toilets clean tidy and smell nice. Recommended.

Eight of us (2 families) had a great meal here. Nice fish, crunchy batter, thick bread, and plenty of friendly and helpful waitresses, who weren't phased by four boys. On the first floor so you don't see the restaurant until you get up there, but well worth venturing up.

My wife and I ate at Mother Hubbard's on a Friday lunchtime recently; we chose the café / restaurant based entirely on its Tripadvisor ratings. Having been disappointed by a number of the cafes / restaurants offering fish and chips in Scarborough we were willing Mother Hubbard's to be good and it was; living up fully to its TripAdvisor ratings....
