As good as ever

Popped in again last week, for my bi yearly visit and can say I was not disappointed. Even though it was 2.30 and quiet the fish was as lovely and fresh as always. Chips were lovely and fresh too.

£9 for fish and chip special I thought was on the pricey side considering the room you are in is very basic. The bread and tea are clearly from a very basic range. The quality of the fish and chips is good although heavy on the batter.

We are on our 12th year of visiting here and they are just as good today as then. The fish is always fresh and cooked to order and the batter light and crispy - not too thick. The portions are plentiful, I have the pensioners special which is still a good portion. The staff are always friendly and chatty. The... More

Have visited here three times in the past year and... well... OK. The quality of the fish is always excellent. The problem is each and every time, the batter is ridiculously thick to the degree it's almost teeth breaking. This is a shame because I like batter but the amount on the fish here is too much for comfort and... More

After a very long drive home (4 hours in horrendous rain) I decided I needed fish and chips. Called in to Becketts and had to order the fish, so really fresh, right? Wrong. Asked for my order wrapped without salt & vinegar to take home. Got home, unwrapped and couldn't eat it. The fish was rank. Grey and ammoniacal, even... More

Ernie Becketts is pretty much everyones number one for fish and chips in the whole of North East Lincolnshire. I would go once a month as a child and recently visited a couple of times as an adult. My biggest worry that nostalgia had clouded my view but I can say without a doubt it was even better than I... More
