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

Always call in here for Quality Fish & Chips, whether it be on a day trip with family or friends or during the National Scooter Rally. Never had anything but quality service and food. Well worth a visit.

We've had both takeaway and eat in fish and chips here and they were both great! Big portions, fresh food and tasty. Eating in the restaurant area is quite small and dated (but I actually quite liked it - reminded me of fish and chips with my grandparents many years ago!), staff are good and it's very child friendly. Would... More

This café is small but the food is very good. I feel that wheelchair access would be difficult. There is also a takeaway area.

Popped in on a sunny Tuesday for proper fish and chips whilst at the seaside, glad we did. Partner, 3Year old daughter and I sat, ordered and our food was on our table with in 15 minutes. The chips were beautifully crisp and just right, not greasy and limp. The fish was battered beautifully sand again crisp with no grease... More
