Freshly cooked to order beautiful tender and flakey cod. Best Fish and Chips in York by a long way and probably best in the North of England. Very reasonably priced too. I'll be going out of my way to go back here.

It went through a period of being very mediocre in the 80's and early 90's, despite having stiffer competition from the excellent Burnholme Fisheries in those days. In more recent years, it has really turned around. Excellent quality fish and chips, nearly always freshly cooked... More
