I was on a rail rover trip last week and decided to call in at Cleethorpes because I'd never been there before and it had a good reputation for fish and chips. Arriving, I was faced with a multitude of choice, so many fish and chip shops in such a small area and near to the railway station. Best bet... More

I have been visiting this fish shop for over 40 years so I felt confident that today's visit with my family would be as good as it was in the good old days. Sadly, this was not the case. My order consisted of Fish and Chips x 6 plus a fish for the dog - the portions were average but... More

We weren't disappointed. We sat in the restaurant and both had fish, chips, mushy peas with bread & butter and a... More

We enjoyed fish, chips and mushy peas, tea, bread and butter at Ernie Beckett's. Service was faultless and our plates were in front of us within two or three minutes of placing our order. Freshly cooked, tender haddock that fell off the fork. The bill came to 20 pounds including tip and was excellent value-for-money. No frills, polite, efficient staff... More

Being a local, and having many fish and chips shops to choose from on my door step, I still return to my favourite Ernie Becketts. Having a friendly relaxing and chatty atmosphere with the staff. A very clean establishment, and the food is second to non.... Struggling to eat it all, with the portions being so generous. My first choice... More

Very generous portions with the jumbo fish not being for the faint hearted. The staff are friendly with a wide range on the menu. The restaurant was clean and the their toilets around the corner were too.
