Fish and chips hyper- cafe and take- away

The first thing that hits you is the size.We were quickly seated & order taken.The various fish types were all delicious with light batter. The chips could have been a bit crisper but otherwise all was top notch.

As we entered we were left waiting as a family were complaining about their service and extra items added to their bill. We were only seated when the manager was called. She had to tell the girl to take us to a table. We were sat for a while. There were up to ten staff all wandering around and cleaning... More

his was our first visit to a Whitby's restaurant and we were very impressed. The restaurant was quite busy but the service was impeccable. I was pleased to see a full choice of ways to have your fish cooked, especially the gluten free and low fat options., which rarely seem to appear in this sort of restaurant. Basically your fish...

This is a nice change from popping to the local chippy. It is well situated near junction 33 of the motorway and offers a good range of fish based products starters and puddings. We love to eat fish and chips sat on the sea front but for a family treat for a relative that has a limited diet you can't... More

Having been disappointed before we though we would give the place another try. Wish we hadn't. The salmon in the fish pie was overcooked and dry. The regular size fish was very small. We had to wait a long time for the food to arrive after ordering and when we asked for the bill we waited so long that we... More

The prices are too high for the portion size. We had a long wait for the food to be delivered even though the place was less than half full. We also had a long wait for the bill in the end we went to the till and paid there. Having been disappointed before we thought we would give it another... More

Always quality fish & chips at Rotherham restaurant. Great choice of how you want the fish cooking and it's always fresh. Never had a salad as good as this anywhere. If you visit on a Saturday lunchtime I would recommend booking or be prepared to stand about & wait.
