“Underwhelmed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Called in my own, quite a clean place, not cheap with a limited menu anyway must not grumble, ordered, got food, to start with the chips was the same chips used for a take away sausage and chips and not much given how much you paid, anyway at the end when i went to Pay i saw something what is disgusting, somebody ordered fish and chips, i saw them put the fish and chips in a normal take away tray andput them on the plate, so really your paying like 2 pound more for the same quantity as the take away is, lady just snatched cash out of my hand, no please or thankyou or nothing, shame really, never again

“Great Fish & Chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

I had heard that this place was a good place to get fish & chips well, it is!

Fantastic. Well cooked, quick, clean and friendly staff. Look up the location on Google maps if you're coming to Scarborough and go here instead of anywhere else, believe me.

There's a car park right next to it too if you need to nip in/ out quickly.

Now my favourite!

“Excellent fish & chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

My daughter myself & 2 grandchildren in Scarborough for the day & we were handed a leaflet for the Lifeboat. I took a look in the small restaurant & decided we couldn't get in with the pushchair and as we were leaving the waitress came to us and said she had moved someone to a different table so we could get in. We were not disappointed the fish & chips were some of the best I have eaten. The waitress was so helpful & friendly and even asked if we would like a top up of our tea pot. We will definitely visit again.

“Wonderful fish and chips !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Visited the cafe after reading all of the great reviews !! Wow !! we were not disappointed. Cafe is only small but we got a seat no problem. Friendly staff served us quickly, the prices are great for sitting in. The fish and chips were perfect the batter on the fish was so light and the fish was so tasty !! Will be back and will recommend to all of our friends and family.
