Great fish and chip shop. Always call in when visiting the area. The extra spicy curry sauce is very good.

Well, we are certainly glad you were asked to do a review since you have said such nice things. You are right, of course, parking is fun on Potter Hill . (try living there, grrrr) But like most of Pickering and the UK it is a cross we all have to bare. :) We like our small shop, if only... More

Been coming here for years. Always great food and friendly service. Strongly recommended. The only problem is that parking can sometimes be a bit difficult!

Provided a banquet of fish, chips & mushy peas for tea on Saturday. Two different curry sauces (spicy and normal) keeps everyone happy, and a pickled egg (yum yum). Fish freshly cooked, chips a plenty. Hard to beat on cold winters evening.

A banquet? Well, that's lovely! We are very happy that everyone was happy, and hope that you all stay warm. By all reports this cold snap is a taste of things to come, so hopefully we will see you again son for more warm maintaining yummy, with a sauce of your choice. Until ten, thanks again.

Large portions that I couldn't finish. Friendly staff and great food. They even coped with the fact that there were 11 of us.

Thank you very much for these kind words. We love our 'regulars' - even if 'regular' is only once a month or once a year it's nice to know we did well enough for you to come back.

Thanks Tom, hope you enjoyed the walking as much as the Fish & Chips. We rather enjoy walking in the woods below and beyond the Pickering Castle. A trip to the flood attenuation works on the far side of the town is worth the walk. We hope to see you again soon. Thanks for the kind words The Potter Hill... More

Nice chips, fish cooked fresh, pretty much everything you need in a fish and chip shop. We'll happily visit again next time we're in Pickering.

We were on holiday in the area and had visited Whitby the previous day and obviously had to try the fish & chips, and I have to say we were somewhat disappointed. We tried the Potter Hill Fish Shop the following day and we were absolutely blown away by the quality of the fish & chips - just fantastic! If... More

Thank you very much for your kind words. We do try to make sure our holiday visitors get the best Traditional Fish & Chips we can manage - it would seem to be very rude if we didn't! It's a big expectation and a high bar we try to meet as often as we can. Hopefully you have a great... More
