Saw the constant queue and the crowds outside so thinking this was a good sign bought the fish and chips, the fish being haddock. Quickly served and fresh. Really enjoyable and a good portion at a reasonable price. Also plenty of seating outside on the prom

Decided to eat in with a young family. Upon arrival immediately made unwelcome having to lump push chair upstairs to a storage area and made to collapse it down.
If you like plastic table cloths and eating fish and chips with sauce sachets then this is your place.
If however you want to be welcomed and have above average fish and chips then move along

Popped into winking willies after a walk around the amusements along the front, quite a rainy day and it was about 11.30am so were probably the first customers of the day. Sat down near the window of this rather shabby cafe come canteen looking place. Ordered two lots of their fish and chip specials and were quite pleased with the portion sizes, but while eating my wife made a comment that the fish seemed odd and a bit like cooked frozen fish. Me being a Yorkshire lad said stop moaning and get it eaten....OH MY GOD!!! what a night i had, could not stop being sick all night, and the following 2 days i was totally out of order. Being 45 years old male and fairly fit it takes a lot to knock me out and i never knew you could get food poisoning from fish and chips...i do now. We shall not be returning and i think fish and chips will be off the menu for a while. They really need to have a look at their food handling standards. Luckily my 11 month old daughter only had a few chips as this could have killed her.

Because of its location this place obviously has become complacent and thinks it can serve up any old rubbish and still pull people in.
Their food is nothing short of apalling. Fish was not fresh, chips all had bad bits on them & hot chocolates were almost cold when they arrived.
Do yourself a favour and go ANYWHERE else!

Ended a great day in Yorkshire with freshly cooked cod and chips overlooking the harbour with the obligatory seagull. Cod and chips were excellent and a good sized portion and they always taste better out of the paper with plenty of salt and vinegar. would recommend as there is lots of choice along the beach front / harbour area
