Fantastic fish and chips

This is a lovely little place and well worth a visit. It serves the best fish and chips I have had in a very long time. It clearly cooks fish fresh from the seam as it should given its location. This is definitely one to visit.

Always the place to visit when in Scarbrough. Great value for money and massive portions. All food is cooked to order by the friendly staff, and the view overlooking the harbour adds to the experience. Well worth heading off the main road to visit.

Is it worth going slightly off the Main Street. For this cafe ,not really. Very hot inside, ok seating, poor seating outside. The service is ok, not asked how the meal was, or if we needed anything else! The fish was excellent well cooked, and a good size, the mushy pease were ok, the chips were nice, but I only... More

My daughter had the fish butty which was a large fish on a breadcake, see photo. My granddaughter had a kids meal which also included a proper fish. All good quality fish and freshly... More

Called in for lunch with my wife and two kids after a quick review read from Tripadvisor. Fish and chips were decent and the kids enjoyed their meals too. No frills Cafe with very pleasant friendly staff, £24 for lunch was good value!

Located upstairs at the side of the docks above the fish market. The location seems a little weird and industrial. The interior of the premises was also quite basic, but the meal was very nice. All cooked to order and I could not fault the food. The fish was as nice as I have had anywhere and the chips were... More

We visited Scarborough for the day and was unsure of where to get a nice portion of fish and chips from. We found this place on trip advisor, saw it had good reviews so decided to give it a go. It certainly lived up to those good reviews! The batter on the fish was so light and airy and wasn't... More
