12 students and 2 teachers. Fantastic fish and chips, lovely staff, excellent value. Service second to none. Students made to feel very welcome. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. All my students left a clean plate! One of my students is a wheelchair user whom was made very welcome.

Having been a regular visitor to Scarborough from childhood I returned for the first time in around 10 years, remembering good times eating here, so decided to once again partake. After various disappointments during the day seeing places and attractions that had either disappeared or changed for the worse I was very pleasantly surprised that the Fish Pan at least... More

A super fish resturant on the sea front. Good friendly service, very good freshly cooked food from a good menu and if you can get a window table, super views over the South Bay.
