Description: A fabulous family friendly, award winning fish and chip cafe. Just voted Best Fish and Chip shop 2013. Either take away or eat in. With 80 covers there is plenty of room, coach parties welcome. We aim to provide the best fish and chips available from sustainable and local sources at a value price. Gluten free and veggie chip shop chips. Served with a smile. Our premises are not your usual fish and chip cafe and are a pleasurable and inspiring place to spend some time.

“Fishy flop”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Not sure what market this place is aiming at. The fish and chips were mediocre at best. By all accounts, its the sort of place to pop into for a quick fish and chips on a sunny afternoon, but dont expect too much.

Hello Keith
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am utterly disappointed you did not enjoy your fish and chips with us and would really apprciate an understanding of why, as we have only had really positive feedback online and personally to our team in the cafe and takeout on our product thus far since taking over as new owners a week ago. We buy the best and most expensive quality sustainable fish available to us in the market and our chips are made locally and fresh daily from local potato stocks (this years weather permitting). We then make our own special batter mix from raw ingredients daily (no commercial catering solutions) and fry the product fresh to order in our state of the art range which is computer controlled for total consistency in our product. In terms of what we are aiming at- this is to be one of the best fish and chip cafes in Yorkshire and if we got it wrong on this occasion I need to understand why so I can provide the people of Helmsley with a product and business to be proud of. Please let me know when you may be visiting again or if I may meet you if you are local my number is 07907 999 800, I look forward to hearing from you
best regards
Lee
