The fish and chips were fabulous and good sized portions but the service was even better. We had our aunt in a wheelchair and they could not have been more accommodating. Really friendly service we would love to return when visiting Helmsley again. We all loved it.

Had my fair share of Fish and Chips, but they are lovely here. I had half an acre of chips which were fried to perfection, beautiful green thick mushy peas and a smashing pot of tea. Staff were lovely and couldn't enough for you. I would say the fish was the star of the show, spot on batter with thick... More

Would recommend unconditionally. Spotlessly clean. Plenty of seating - upstairs, downstairs and outside. Quick, friendly service. Great food. Also, Helmsley is a great little market town to explore.

We ordered the special of Cod, chips and mushy peas for £5. We waited a little while for the fish which we were happy to do as I’d always prefer to wait a few minutes more and know it’s fresh out of the fryer. The portion was a decent size and the mushy peas were very tasty.
