We both had the Fish and Chip Special, fish, chips, mushy peas, tea and bread and butter for less than £15 for the two of us. The fish batter was light, crisp and not at all greasy; the fish was soft, moist and cooked just right. There was a huge pile of very nice fat chips, plenty of mushy peas and generously sized sachets of tartar sauce.

This is a very busy restaurant with the main seating upstairs and a large take-away shop next to a small ground floor seating area. Service is fast but, due to the high turn-over of customers its not as tidy as it could be.

I first visited the Fish Pan three years ago when we frist came on holiday to Scarborough and since moving to live up here, it has become our family celebration venue. The food is really good but dont have the lasagne unless your appetite is equal to the portion served.... its a huge meal! I have always found all the staff pleasant and charming and even better now we are becoming a familiar family group. The best part of the Fish Pan experience is that you given a warm, fun- loving welcome that sets the tone just right for a tourist location. Maybe a staff member does have a seafood allergy, but he certainly is an integral part of the ambience and the place would be a shadow of itself without him as his knowledge of Scarborough is fabulous. All in all, if you want impersonal, service that rushes you thorugh the dining go somewhere else and leave the tables free for those of us who want to relax over our meals in the most fun restaurant on the North Yorkshire coast.

Being from Grimsby it pains me to say this was the best fish ever tasted! Lovely and you get what you pay for quality.
