lovely food and great service

We ate here as we were staying at the nearby Travelodge and kept driving past, it made a nice change to the usual fast food chains. The fish was lovely and even the regular portion was more than enough for me (lots of chips!), my children had the kids scampi and the kids fish and chips - the long... read more

Nipped here for take away, waited over 15 mins for sausage and gravy was a watery mess, staff were friendly which gains it an extra star but for the price and location I would expect much better.

We are local and have eaten here many times when under the banner of 'Triton'. It looks like a change in name has meant changes and not for the better. We wanted a quick fix meal after a busy day at home. Arrived at 6.30pm and main course arrived at just before 8pm. This meant no time for desserts or... More

Hello and thanks for the review, I need to be balanced in this response as you were in on Sunday last, which was especially busy for 90 mins or so in the evening, which did catch us out a little on staffing and service. We had 3 staff on, 2 were relative juniors along with Kerri, my Manager. Normally three... More

Hi and thanks for the review, We are seeing an increasing number of Travel Lodge and Premier guests coming in to us, due to being so close by. We are definitely family friendly and love to see kids enjoying our food. Crayons and pictures for kids as standard. Regular fish portions are 8oz, which is more than enough and as... More

Don't let fish and chips fool you, there is a lot more on offer! The restaurant area is a lovely place to sit and eat with friendly staff and a good selection of food on the menu. There's activity packs to keep the little ones entertained and overall first class service

Hello and thanks for the review, 'Reely' great fish n chips, but so much more to 'sea'. Check out the menu on our web site. Home made dishes, gluten free, veggie options. Eat in or takeaway. Thanks again and come back soon. Regards Tony More

Stopped off on way back from York Outlet. Clean, modern Fish & Chip shop, takeaway side and restaurant to other side. Great service, fair priced with 'specials', Left full and very pleasantly suprised of the standards of a 'service area' restaurant. Well worth a visit!

Hi and thanks for the review, We do look like a service area, but we are so much more than that. We have just completed a refurbishment internally with 100 seats in the restaurant and 25 seats in the takeaway. As well as fish and chips, we offer a wide range of other main meals, including home made steak pies,... More

We eat here a fair amount for convenience but you always know what you're going to get. The staff are friendly and cheerful and prompt and the meals are hot with plenty of chips. This time we were staying in the travelodge across the A64 and it was easy to get over here. We had friends with us and they... More

Hello David, Thanks or the review. I would have to say I think you are being a bit harsh. If you had 10 people they would all have a different opinion on what makes good fish and chips? That is the nature of the product. We use prime Icelandic fish, cut on site to ensure thick meaty flaky fillets. We... More

Cannot give Excellent as I didn't try the restaurant and therefore do not feel appropriate. As I approached on Friday tea time it looked busy, however they run a slick service. All food was cooked to order and tasted lovely, could possibly add more chips to their portion but that's hardly a negative in these times of obesity. Every meal... More
