Description: TAKE AWAY ONLY - NO SEATING AS OF LATE OCTOBER 2016 WE ARE CURRENTLY THE ONLY FISH AND CHIP SHOP IN BRIDLINGTON COOKING IN RAPESEED OIL, NO MORE BEEF DRIPPING - NO MORE SATURATES USED, WE ARE TRYING OUR BEST TO GIVE PEOPLE A BETTER, HEALTHIER OPTION WHEN IT COMES TO TAKE AWAY FOOD. Oldest established fish and chip take away shop in Bridlington, Richard has owned Gabbys since 2001 and is proud of how over the years has gone from strength to strength. We have all the usual chip shop food from cod, haddock, chips to sausages and fish cakes, we also have the slightly less common battered black pudding, corned beef fritters and onion rings, If you like curry you may be surprised to discover we do 4 different types -chip shop, Chinese, Irish and Vegetable! We also have 2 types of Gravy -chip shop and vegetable! We have a huge range of choice starting at just 30p. There is a specials board in the chippy where you'll find our new ideas to try - our newest addition which is extremely popular is Italiano Chips - chips smothered in cheese and topped with our secret recipe Italian sauce! Overall we try our best to keep the portions large, quality high and prices rock bottom!

“Traditional fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

If you like good old fashioned fish and chips then this is the place (no pun intended) for you. Succulent fish ( the shop lists the name of the ship that caught it ) in crispy batter and juicy chips all cooked in traditional beef fat. They taste just like they used to taste when you were a bairn! Extremely reasonably priced and with different size fish and portions of chips so you know you won't get more than you can eat. I know that I have had to throw fish and chips away in the past because I couldn't eat them all, well I got a medium fish and small chips and there was just enough to satisfy me. The service was impeccable even though it was extremely busy as it was Old Town Day and it seemed everyone wanted a chip shop Sunday lunch.

“A Whale of a meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

Drove through the historic old town in Bridlington by mistake and found this traditional chippy. Luckily the parking was free right next to the chippy, billed as the oldest in the town. Judging by the number of people going in it was popular so we gave it a go. The portions were generous. We had haddock cooked to order. The cook took the temperature of the fish to ensure it was cooked through and was able to tell us the ship that landed the fish that morning. The fish was moist and flavoursome and the chips well cooked and tasty too.

“Still an excellent standard!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Since my last visit they have installed a new range, but have kept all the other attributes they had before a warm welcome and high standard of Fish 'n' chips and very reasonable prices. The staff are warm and inviting with a smile and a word for every one who enters.
I have read some of the other review and am at a lose, seem like they were not in the same place! the fish is very good with an excellent flavor, crisp golden batter and both fish and chip are always hot.
