“good food and good view”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is where we eat when we visit Bridlington, it is good value and we have never been disappointed. The restaurant is spacious and has fine views of the bay and the service is always friendly. The chips are "proper" chips and the fish and batter excellent, It is good to have somewhere to eat that is as reliable as this

“Best Fish n Chips ever”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We visit the takeaway and the Cod and chips were fantastic. Snowing hevens high but was cooked to order and well worth the wait. He usues a different brand of potatoe which is crisp on the outside fluffy on the in. If visiting well worth a go you will be amazed.

“Tasty”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Good value, good quality and friendly helpful service. We popped in on a very cold day in January, we were offered specials and then told we would be welcome to have a 'senior' special as we thought a full one would be too big for a lunch - we aren't seniors but that was fine and the portion size was just right. Fish was very fresh, and everything freshly cooked. Our only gripe was the radio pop, but then we've never really liked mainstream toons.

“Not fresh but still the best in brid”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

I Remember eating here with my grandma some 20 years ago and I have not found a better fish n chips in brid since (other than the other busy bees which is just as good). That's not to say however that's its the best chippy on the east coast, just the best in brid. The food scores a 4. It lacks a freshness that you cannot get from frozen fish (see previous review) but the value, service and atmosphere bumps overall to a 5. A message for 'Mr Bee' -If the reason for using frozen haddock is price then I ask that you have an option of local sourced fish as I would happily pay more.
Still, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit today, a trip to brid would not be the same without a busy bee's.

“Food really good. Cafe clean.”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

But disappointed to read a notice near the till saying that the fish was from a Russian factory trawler which processes on average 40 to 50 tonnes of fish a day then the fish is processed on board then frozen.
Why can't the fish be purchased locally and support the local fishing boats?
