Went in half an hour before closing, we had the haddock & chips special. The fish was really tasty & the chips were really nice included bread & butter & washed down with a nice cup of tea A little pricey but fish & chips is a bit pricey everywhere. Have eaten there before on our bridlington holidays & would definitely eat there again.

Visited in Feb 2013,middle of the sunday afternoon, the seating area was by no means full, lots of seating available, service was the worst I have experienced in a long time, very slow, un apologetic, took 40 minutes from ordering (which took 10 minutes) to the meal arriving, everyone around was having the same delay, empty tables with dirty plates, staff looking very unhappy, but not rushing to apologise.
We will not be going back

My daughter, grandson and I called in here for lunch on Thursday 21 March 2013. There were 2 staff on and no customers. The restaurant was empty apart from us. It took well over 30minutes to serve us ( this is fish & chips remember!) and I had to remind them we were there after 20 mins waiting. The fish was ok, but a bit dry due to overcooking, plus there was far too much batter on the (disappointingly small inside) fish, the chips were ok (difficult to destroy chips in a chippy fryer) and the mushy peas were microwaved.
Not impressed at all.

We visited Bridlington today to give our little one a day at the seaside in school half term. Bridlington as a whole was very quiet mainly due to it being out of season, and It was freezing cold, windy and wet. We fancied a fish and chip and due to the fish and chip shops being closed on the main front near the harbour we went back a few streets and found busy bees. Ordered the busy bees special or me, cod and mushy peas for the missus and egg and chips with a sausage for the 3 yr old.
Overall, excellent meals, fish was great, the cod was apparently top draw.
I did feel the child's egg and chips with a sausage was a bit over priced at just under a fiver but hey ho. We were all hungry and it did the trick.
Only one toilet though which maybe isn't the greatest, men, ladies and kids all ment to wait in a queue to use the same one????
