“yummy chips”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

You can't go to the seaside and not have chips. Only had a cone of chips but with 'scraps' of batter as an extra treat - delicious! Highly recommended.

“Must visit”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

We visited the fish pan on 30th august after it was recommended to us. Upstairs is a beautiful cafe it made our minds up to go in when we saw people queuing! We had 2 specials and 2 kids meals and it cost less than £25! an absolute bargain! The lady who was in charge upstairs was wonderful with our children and was very friendly as were all the staff the food was wonderful and we will definitely be comin again I don't think our children would let us come to Scarborough without the promise of coming here! Overall a wonderful experience.

“Great Value For Money”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

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.
