We have been visiting Ernie Becketts for 13 years and they are still as good when we first visited on 30th December 2003. It was busy today so had to wait for a table, but they are well worth the wait. The service is quick and always with a smile. The fish is always fresh and tasty. Will be back... More

The once-magnificent fare offered by this near-legendary eatery has subsided to the merely bettter-than-average. Trippers love it though.

Ive used this place a few times for Fish and Chips but always used it as a takeaway.I thought i'd sit in for a change as I had friends and a small child with me. What a mistake! It was noisy, cramped and very stuffy. The tables are so close I could not pull my chair as a larger lady... More

Pretty average. Staff cooked ok but not very friendly, but maybe they don't need to be? After all only a chippy

Chips quite nice as were peas and bread and butter but not sure at all what the fish tasted of but it was very poor. Still wondering if I'll get an upset tum from it.. Would definitely not recommend. Staff were pleasant though.

This is always our first choice for fish & chips when visiting Cleethorpes. In our opinion it's the best chippy around and the curry sauce is amazing. We have never been disappointed with our food or the service.

Sorry to say but Beckett's is clearly living on its reputation from the 80s. We were a family of five, ordering three adult and two child meals. My haddock was pretty average with batter no in any way firm or crispy, just soggy. The chips were shameful, and the children refused to eat them, calling them mouldy. In effect they... More
