Firstly we were very impressed with the service we received on arrival. Despite the place being very busy with only one small table free, the waitress was quick to come over and let us know she'd have a table for four ready for us in a couple of minutes. She also gave the kids some colouring in to do whilst they waited.

We were then shown to our table and given the menu. The adult's menu was the usual fish and chip shop selection, with the kids menu having a wider selection of child friendly food. We had the fish and chips, sausage beans and chips and the kids had chicken nuggets. All of the food was quickly delivered and delicious!

Although ice cream was on offer as part of the kids' deal, they were full so we did not take up the offer. The kids were given a toy and a lollipop when we paid the bill.

All in all we'd really recommend this restaurant - and don't be put off if it looks busy. From our experience they will try to accommodate you as quickly as possible; plus there are many more seats upstairs which we hadn't been aware of.

I asked on Twitter for suggestions for the best Fish & Chips in Scarborough. This plaice ( sorry couldn't resist that ) came highly recommended.
I now know why. Fast, efficient service. Friendly staff and what else, oh yes Fan-tas-tic Fish & Chips !
Don't mess around trying HR's etc, get in here and do yourself a favour.

Super, super, super. You go to the seaside and get chips. That's how it is. OK, some of you want fish, some want peas, gravy, pies, a pickled egg and so on but it's mostly about chips and these are good. And also cheap. The end.

We were recommended to visit here during our stay, and it was fantastic. My wife and I both had fish,chips,mushy peas and a pot of tea. The fish was cooked to perfection and the chips were crispy and golden.

We also had a window seat, with views out across the bay which was an added bonus! It was a busy lunchtime when we visited but we had our orders taken swiftly and our food soon arrived. If we are able to return to Scarborough, hopefully in the near future, we will definitely be making a return visit! Wonderful place.
