During a short visit to York, my wife and I chanced upon this marvellous seafood restaurant. The preparation and presentation of excellent seafood in an unpretentious and professional manner was way beyond our expectations. We know and greatly enjoy fresh seafood treated with respect and that's what we received. My whitebait starter surpassed all earlier versions of this dish that... More

Situated nearby to the Shambles Market, Mr Chippy offers great fish and chips at affordable prices. We visited 3 times during our stay in York. Each time the fish and chips was fantastic and really tasty. We had food allergies and checked with the staff whether they cooked the food with peanut oil. They were brilliant at checking and telling... More

Nice fish and chips good size and crispy batter, served in a very friendly manner for a reasonable price (£12.95 cod/chips/mushy peas/bread and butter) With good options of cod, haddock, plaice and do specials too Would definitely recommend it if looking for a good place to eat traditional fish and chips.

We happened on this place for an early dinner. It was perfect for what we were looking for, hot and delicious but not as heavy as some of the other restaurants. I had the 2 courses for £12.95 and decided on the French Onion soup and the 5 oz Haddock Fish and Chips. The soup was good and the batter... More

We ate here for lunch today and ordered the "Cod Special." What was served was a HUGE piece of cod that was flakey, fresh, and had a battered deep-fried coating that was absolutely delicious! The onion rings had the same yummy batter, and were made with sweet onions. The service was superb - both of the servers were friendly and... More

Hi Ann, We are very sorry we didn't hit the mark here but after investigating the past week we can't seem to identify the issue?

We were told chips would be 5 minutes so we said that was fine, and proceeded to wait. 10 minutes later I said to my boyfriend "its been a long 5 minutes", we then waited another 5 minutes for our chips.
