Walking weekend

During our recent stay with friends in Settle, we called into the Shambles fish and chip shop on the Friday evening. Great fish and chips with a generous portion of cod, we opted for the medium portion. The staff were very friendly too. Would call in again on our next visit to Settle.

First visited the Shambles fish and chip shop (takeaway) in summer 2012, had a appointment in the area and broke off to see Settle and sample the local fare, At that time we waited for our "twice" to be cooked, fresh and was very impressed. Since then have gone to see the very warm, friendly owner, (Richard I presume from... More

I ate here a few nights ago with a couple of friends. My fish and chips were pleasant enough if not spectacular. My friends both had meat pies that they said were OK too. The staff were friendly and the food was served quite promptly. It was relatively expensive though, but at least it was open in the evening!

A very friendly place and the food is gorgeous. Definitely worth visiting for a takeaway or even 'Sit In'.

Had some 'fast food' after a day out cycling. The chip shop is easy to find in the market square and also does take-away. We elected to use the restaurant. First impressions is that it needs a bit of an update and redecoration but not too bad. Service was quick and the young lady who was serving was friendly and... More

Called in after a long journey, chips were excellent, crisp and well cooked. However, shocked at price and size of 'standard' fish - very expensive compared to my home chip shop. Possibly better value if you use as a restaurant

We called for a quick fish supper on our way to camp at Malham Cove. We were very pleasantly surprised by the variety on the menu, which included freshly cooked pizzas, so our fussy youngest could be catered for. Our fish was lovely, and we enjoyed sitting in the small restaurant at the side of the takeaway. The staff were... More

This fish and chip shop is run by an agreeable proprietor and has tables which overlook Settle Marketplace. The fish is cooked individually and is of good quality. Regrettably, its shape looks somewhat manufactured. On my visit both fish and chips were undercooked, the batter being raw in places. Worst of all it is close to one of the best... More

Gorgeous supper which we ate in the restaurant. We had the special which was haddock, chips, peas, tea or coffee and bread and butter. Beautifully cooked and well presented. Staff very friendly. Will be going again before we go home.
