Little changes here, except the staff. . Fish was good , service is generally below par with at least one error. From the simple no Bread and butter to totally the wrong drinks. Overall best practice is check your order and confirm what you have ordered.

Bearing in mind we were a group of five with kids and was into the last half hour before closing they were happy to pull down chairs that had been put away and open up an area... More

Hard to say too much as we only had chips ! Clean and friendly staff, lots of parking, Chips we're very nice and plenty of them, no reason to doubt other products would be. A handy stop on the way back from the coast.

I was the one who commented about the opening hours being wrong on the website. I would like to say how very helpful Scotts were when I phoned. I spoke to an extremely helpful man who has since sent me a voucher for some meals as compensation. The website has also been updated. Thank you Scotts!

Called in for Sunday lunch after running in the York 10k. Fantastic welcome, very efficient and friendly staff, seated and served drinks right away. The food was great, two of the party having traditional fish n' chips and one having the fish pie. Everyone was very impressed with the quality, even free top-up chips though we couldn't manage any!

Went here while we were staying a the Premier Inn nearby, after seeing reviews on tripadvisor. Fish and chips was lovely and very hot. Scampi also very good. Pavlova however was very disappointing, not sure where the meringue was. Would say well worth a visit.

Hello and thanks for the review, Sorry to hear the pavlova wasn't up to scratch. It is home made and very popular. We will look in to that and I would encourage you to speak up at the time, if everything is not to your complete satisfaction. We can sort things quickly, no quibble. Regards Tony More

I visited Scotts as i had a meeting in York. I used to come here when it was Tritons, not been up here for a few years but wanted to relive old memories. Had Haddock and chips and have to say i have had better, the fish inside the thick greasy batter was fresh no doubt about that, but the... More

Hi Nick, It's now two years since we took over and we strive to be consistent with our quality. We have one supplier of fish & one supplier of potatoes. We have one batter mix and strict controls in place to ensure consistency. My confusion you mention, is down to so many positive reviews and then an odd negative one,... More
