Really good honest fish and chips. No frills but the best I've had for years. Lovely staff too. A must if you're in Scarborough.

We had some of the best fish & chips ever! Lovely light and crispy batter on the fish, great chips and a proper mug of tea. Superb setting overlooking the harbour, def recommend this cafe for your fish & chips.

Simple cafe serving excellent fish and chips. Probably among the freshest I've eaten. Not fast food as cooked to order. Well worth waiting for. Good bread and butter too. Very reasonably priced.

Have been having an omelette for my dinner since 2011 after getting tired of fish in its many varieties, and I have never had a bad one yet. Every one has been a very good size and has been well cooked.

Great value, lovely fish and chips. A bit hard to find on the pier past the fresh fish shop. guaranteed fresh when you're beside where the fish is brought in after the catch, prepared and sold the same day.

There is just something about this place that I love. From the 50's coat dresses that the waitresses wear, the formica interior and the great milky coffees, if I'm in Scarborough this is a must for me. the children have now become addicted to the ice cream floats, sundaes and knickerbocker glories......which is what I was after.
