happyjack321, thank you for a "top notch" review. Portion size is often mentioned and we feel we serve value for money portion sizes. However for the hungrier customers we will top up chips on request, free of charge. We want every customer to go home happy. But maybe you need to consider less chips and go for a home made... More

As ever this great venue served us with fantastic fish and chips in an amazing batter, very filling and no room for pudding.

Hi David, Thanks for the review, but disappointed you had no room for pudding?? Head Chef Roxy makes many home-made desserts and they are a must. Maybe try the Cap'n Scotts special next time, which is a smaller 5oz fish portion and should leave room for a pud? Come back soon. Regards Tony More

Walking the old Roman road from Tadcaster we'd brought sandwiches to eat en route. Trying to cross the A64 looked suicidal so we carried on to a flyover. Lo and behold, Macdonalds! As we got nearer we spotted a fish and chip shop and we realised we could eat in. We were greeted at the door and quickly realised we... More

Hi Bradway9, Thanks for the review and delighted you found us. You say it all, quality, value and service is what we offer. The takeaway menu is cheaper for those on a tighter budget and we do have 25 seats in the takeaway to eat in, rather than on a bench outside or in a vehicle. If you need more... More

Visited yesterday with a friend who had informed me prior to arriving that there would be gluten free options available. Fantastic I thought, following a strict gluten free diet I have missed out on having fish and chips so was really looking forward to being spoilt! I wasn't disappointed, although not every dish on the menu came with a gf... More

Called here to redeem a money off voucher and weren't disappointed. Quality was excellent, as ever, and everywhere was clean and tidy. Service could have been a little more attentive but it wasn't bad. Toilets were clean and tidy too.

We know Scotts of Elmsley which I think serve absolutely brilliant fish and chips .I am wheat intolerant and malt vinegar intolerant and I know I can relax and know I will be fine at Scott's.

Hello and thanks for the review, Delighted you have now found us and realise we are the same as Scotts of Helmsley. Same quality, value and service. The externals of the building and signage are a challenge to convey what we have on offer inside. But once inside you will find a wide menu, many home made dishes and of... More
