Good fish & chips, friendly service, not the best of locations, unless you're a traveller on the A64

We went as a treat for our 4 year old granddaughter. The fish and chips were good, well cooked, not greasy & good taste. The standard portions served with mushy peas were enough for the 2 adults, without adding bread and butter. The pot of tea was huge (3 or 4 cups each) and was real tea, how we... read more

Desperately in need of some "fast" food, we saw Scotts at the side of the A64. The previous evening we had eaten Fish and Chips in Scarborough and were ready for some more! These were cooked freshly in the take out section and were piping hot. The chips were truly amazing - so light. In fact some of the best... More

Same top quality in takeaway 25 seats and restaurant 100 seats. All cooked fresh to order, served with big friendly smiles. Spread the word and come back soon. Regards Tony More

I rarely eat fish and chips but certainly enjoyed these. The prices in the restaurant are rather steep - perhaps owing to its 'services' status on the busy A64. Haddock, chips and peas twice, with a huge pot of Yorkshire Tea for two, came to £25. No hint of grease, though. The chips were close enough to crisp for my... More

Hello Andrew and thanks for the review, Maybe you will now become a regular? All orders are cooked fresh to order, to ensure nice crisp batter and no grease. Regarding prices we regularly check prices in the market and we know we are mid range in price, but it is not just about price. We only serve prime Icelandic fish... More

I stopped off at Scotts Fisher and Chip take away in March 2015. There was more batter than cod. The take away meal was very greasy, and, into the bargain, the service was very slow. Waiting for twenty minutes for a take away is unheard of, until Scotts at Bilbrough Top, York

Hello, I consider this review malicious and have reported it to Trip Advisor. They always advise responding, so I will. The comments are totally untrue. No other reviewer has mention anything you mention and it is simply not true. Our fish is cooked to order, which is 5 mins maximum, it is never greasy and the fish is thick meaty... More
