Mum and I visit Mother Hubbards every time we go to Scarborough. After the last time we visited I mentioned to mum that there were no reviews online for the place which is a shame, but we then both realised probably because the restaurant is full of non web savvy pensioners, lol!
This eaterie is nothing to write home about from when viewed from the street and very unexciting when you actually make it up there, put it this, way no one is visiting to pull or to admire the decor! You have to climb two flights of very steep stairs to reach it, which is surprising when you consider how many senior citizens visit.
Traditional styling, with some booth seating. Very quick service. They do a deal where you get fish (haddock) and chips, pot of tea and bread and butter for £6.95 (lunchtime) and £5.95 after 3pm. We always have this deal. Portions are very generous. The fish is the best tasting I've had anywhere, back in the South East you'd pay £15 for a cube of fish and a dozen chips served 'jenga' style, but this is the business. Big fish, lots of chips, lovely batter and cooked in dripping the proper Yorkshire way. Very fresh fish.
Be warned though, last time we went they accepted cash only.
Toilets are very clean, but up another steep flight of stairs.
