Scotts is not just a fish and chip restaurant the menu is very varied with plenty of other options if you do not want the fish. My wife and myself opted for the large Yorkshire pudding filled with prime beef stew.... More

Had an evening meal 4 times this week. Every one was delicious. The best fish and chips ever cooked to order. Steak pie, home made and drop dead gorgeous. Manager David really friendly, took time to chat to us. Gave complimentary wine for my birthday, the lovely girls sang happy birthday to me and put a candle on my wonderful... More

We were on our way back from a cold day out to the sea side and pulled in for some fish and chips. Had to wait 5 minutes or so as the fish seemed to be cooked to order. Fair portions and good fish and chips! Also took card payment

Hello, Thanks for the review and pleased you enjoyed them. We do in fact cook to order, to ensure the highest quality and we do take credit cards in the takeaway, which is unusual in takeaway fish shops. Hope to see you back soon. Regards Tony More

We called for a meal when traveling from Wales to Whitby in October. As lovers of good quality fish and chips ( which are hard to find ) we were delighted to find Scott's were serving probably the best fish and chips we have tasted in a very long time.. We love the Magpie (famous fish restaurant ) in Whitby... More

Having stayed in the York area for 3 days we all fancied Fish and Chips as one last treat before heading home. We all thoroughly enjoyed our starters / mains , the staff were friendly and efficient. My daughter ordered a Chocolate Fudge Cake which tbh was a little hard but once we had made the staff aware of the... More

The fish tasted nice and fresh and the staff were attentive but definitely not too on top as can all too often be a problem when visiting a restaurant. This restauarant is of exceptional cleanliness and tidiness. Puddings were huge and I ended up with 1 and a half as my boy couldn't finish his lol. Good quality food at... More

Hi Richard, Thanks for the review and whilst we are located at what is billed as a service area, we strive to be a local fish n chip shop and restaurant and NOT a service station. In fact the majority of our customers are locals and regulars. We have many home made dishes, including most of the puddings being made... More
