Wonderful fish & chips!!!

Visited here for a family fish supper to take away. Recommend pre-booking as everything cooked to order. Fish & chips were wonderful - batter crisp & chips were delicious (definitely NOT frozen chips like a previous reviewer has suggested). Highly recommended!!!

Having consumed far too many portions of fish 'n' chips over the years in many, many place, including Whitby, I can honestly say these rate as some of the BEST! Huge piece of cod perfectly cooked, crisp batter, hand cut chips. Keenly priced. Cooked to order. You'll have to wait a civilised while (45 mins) for your take-away - just... More

We had a lovely supper in this little restaurant. The batter on my fish was delicious; it was both crisp and light. My husband had a venison pie which was also excellent. We finished our meal with some home made sticky toffee pudding. An added bonus was to be allowed to have our dog curl up asleep under the table... More

The lamb and mint pie was exceptional! All of the food looked lovely and was cooked fresh to order. It was cash only, so we had to pop out to the cash point, but the food was well worth it. Great service too.

A great small family run fish and chip restaurant/takeaway. The food is delicious. All is cooked to order so is piping hot and not reheated. It gets very busy in here at peak times so either visit a bit earlier or later or ring a takeaway order through

Although this is a restuarant, they also provide take away fish and chips to order. We had a take away from here. And I have to admit that they were some of the best fish and chips Ive had in a very long while. Reasonably priced too. Wish all chip shops provided this service.

The fish and chips were ok but the service was very slow. They do take away and sit down and there is one cooking and one taking the orders. They were turning people away for take aways and they weren't that busy. All cooked to order but I think they cook one at a time....
