Robobear, Thanks for the great comments, we couldn't add any more to what you say. We can only agree whole heartedly. What COD be BATTER? 'yum, yum, happy tum' - might use that in our own marketing if you don't mind? Spread the word and come back soon. Regards Tony More

Always stopped here for take-aways (rather than eat in their restaurant), The Take-away shop area has tables and chairs to eat in (as well as the restaurant part)... some outside for sunny weather! Prices are reasonable (5oz Cod, chips and peas £5, Fish butty £3.20 - prices as at date of posting 21st March 2015). Generous portions, great quality, highly... More

Hello Ken, Thanks for the review and delighted you are a regular. We have just extended our eat in area in the takeaway which you will have enjoyed. Around 20 seats, so plenty. Value for money is key for us, with the highest quality and friendly service. Thanks again. Regards Tony More

We were really looking forward to fish and chips but Thompsons was packed. Decided to give Scotts a try and are really pleased we did. Nicely redecorated restaurant and excellent fish and chips. Good service and will now use as our first choice stop off and recommend others to give them a try instead of the other usual places.

Hi Martyn and thanks for the review, Who needs Thompsons, when you've got Scotts? Hopefully we are the first option now for you and others travelling on A64. Open everyday with takeaway and restaurant. Recent refurbishment now complete with an eat in area for takeaway customers, to avoid the mess and smell in your car. Come back soon. Regards Tony More

We couldn't be bothered to drive into York for dinner, so thought we would "make do" with the fish and chips next door to the Premier Inn. It turned out to be a really nice restaurant, much nicer than the outside would suggest. We enjoyed our meal especially the homemade proper puddings. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff...

Hello and thanks fro the review, We agree, who needs York when we are there for you. We offer high quality, for value for money, served with friendly smiles. Certainly not a "make do" alternative, but the only alternative? Hope to see you back soon. Regards Tony More

thanks again for a lovely meal and a good dining experience. Tyler did us proud as usual serving us with a big smile and plenty of friendly chat. The manager also came across to say hello and we were introduced to the new supervisor. All in all a good experience thanks .Liz and Ken

Visited purely by chance on the way to York as didn't want to stop at "usual suspect" services at previous exit. Was worth the slightly round about trip across the motorway as it was on other side to which we were travelling. Had the steak pie which was excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. Would recommend to anyone... More

Hello Stephen, Thank you for the review. You enjoyed the home made steak pie, a favourite of mine. Home made by Roxanna, our Head Chef. Chips and mushy peas, with a bit of ketchup finish it off nicely. Access is easy from both sides of the carriageway, although highways signage could be better. Now you know where we are, we... More

Driven past this restaurant at the side of the A64 between York and Leeds many, many times and never been in. Nearly didn't bother - as you drive in past the motel and McDonalds I wondered if I was heading for "motorway service station food". Could not have been more wrong. The restaurant was being decorated and should look great... More

Hi Stephen, Hidden gem you say, well we hope we are becoming less of a Hidden gem.Please spread the word. The location is excellent, but we do suffer from poor signage and the expectation of motorway services food!!! The only way to overcome that is to serve great quality food, at value for money prices and smiley friendly staff. Gradually... More

Hello and thanks fo the great comments, Both the steak pie and lasagne are home made in our kitchen, by Roxanna who takes great pride in her food. She also makes most of the fantastic deserts you see on display, so afternoon tea is a great alternative if you're not feeling that hungry. The decorating will be completed soon, 6th... More

This is such a lovely restaurant. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious not just fish and chips but a whole range of delicacies all delightfully cooked and served. Not cheap but definitely worth every penny.Would highly recommend.
