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.

we visited last Sunday and really enjoyed the food which was really quickly served by a lovely little waitress called Maisie. She was most helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble to her. Many thanks for a lovely evening made better by the fayre and the extremely pleasant Maisie

At first I was not too sure. I could see it from the road but found it difficult to actually get too. I guess it used to be a roadside diner but now it's a serious fish and chip shop. I have eaten at some serious restaurants including the one in Padstein and the battered haddock here is up there... More

Hello and thanks for the review, And WOW what great comments, " better than Steins" - what more can we say? All fish is prime Icelandic, from sustainable fishing grounds and we buy large fish, then cut to size. This ensures a think meaty fillet of fish with big flakes as you cut into it. Own batter recipe and all... More

6 of us went as staying at the Premier inn food was good value a range for those like me not that keen on fish. Really friendly and accommodating staff. Even gave us cake to take back with us (which was delicious) as they were closing. More than just a fish and chip restaurant!!

Hi Lousie, Thanks for the review and delighted you enjoyed your visit. As you discovered, we do a lot more than just fish and chips, with many home made dishes, such as steak pie, lasagnes, desserts..etc. Open 7 days a week for great food, at value prices, all served with big friendly smilies.

We've recently found Scotts and each time we ate there we were not disappointed. The food arrived very quickly, fresh, hot, delicious and definately not greasy. All the staff were extremely friendly.Young Maisie served us on our first visit and her first day, with a warm welcome and smile to match. We will return.
