OK its a fish & chip restaurant along the busy A64 trunk road, but I was mightily impressed. So much so, that next time I fancy fish & chips I'll drive out of York and buy them from here. The essential draw for me was the 'gluten free' option which I've struggled to find anywhere in central York. Although there's... More

Excellent staff, everything very clean and tidy, but the portions not as big as a competitor's. However, the menu choices for pensioners are more extensive.

had always wanted to call in here as we had heard great reviews about it,but didn't realise it had changed hands. We called in anyway and I can honestly say my meal tasted of absolutely nothing!! I had the giant Yorkshire pudding,chips and Cumberland sausage with the most tasteless watery gravy ever. The chips appeared to be frozen-no taste to... More

Hello and thanks for the review, However, I have to say that I am confused? We have investigated and there was no occasion around the time of your review of a customer complaint to staff nor was there any food returned uneaten. So I am unclear as to the purpose behind your review? Potentially malicious? If there was an issue... More

A few fish and chip restaurants on A64 between Leeds and Scarborough, I have been to them all! This is my favorite although food quality is similar at them all, this one wins hands down for cleanliness and staff friendliness. It's also really easy to get to when going either East or West on A64!

Of course the food should be great, but the service and friendliness is key to being outstanding. We now have a great team to take us forwards, led by manager Kerri and Senior Chef Roxanne.

Called in for lunch yesterday, both of us had the plaice which was really good, The batter was not too heavy and the fish very tasty. Not 5 stars simply because of the slowish service, not the fault of the lady serving but she apologised as she was on her own and it was reasonably busy. Top Tip. If you... More

We use the take-away about once a month and have to say we were disappointed by how small the fish seemed after Scott's took over. Yesterday we called in and appeared to have been given larger fish but this was an illusion as the fish was actually very thin. Unfortunately it was overcooked and parts of it were inedible as...

Hello and thanks for the review, I am not sure what you are experiencing, but the fish weight is exactly the same as it has been for months. The visual size may vary, as we cut to a weight. Generally this provides a thick meaty piece of fish. I can assure you the chips are fresh, we get deliveries 2... More
