“The best fishcake I've ever had!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

When I saw the menu I wondered why it said 'fishcake' and not 'fishcakes'. When the food came, I realised why - the fishcake was a meal in itself - huge, homemade and absolutely beautiful. Service was excellent - very quick and friendly. Prices very reasonable. There are many places you can eat in Helmsley, but this is a must!

Hi Nigel,
Thanks for the review. Our new Chef Manager, Shane has brought his own award winning fishcake recipe with him and as you say, you only need one!! He uses all fresh ingredients and they are available in the restaurant or as a take away. We hope to welcome you back very soon. Tony

“The best fish and chips I've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

I visited Scotts last Friday. I was greeted with a warm Yorkshire welcome. The decor and ambiance of the restaurant are great. The staff were friendly and the food gorgeous. There was not just fish and chips on the menu, there was calamari, mussels, and other fish dishes. I did however opt for the fish and chips which can only be described as delicious (the best I have tasted, which is a real compliment coming from a Whitby lass)!!! I can only congratulate the new management on their staff, food and restaurant. Can't wait to visit you again

Hello Sue,
Wow that is praise indeed, what we are doing is putting a culture and systems in place so we can wow every time. Your sentiments are truly appreciated. We are currently closed until the 11th so the restaurant is getting a complete makeover to help us deliver an even better experience. Whilst this feedback is amazing we believe we can get better now we have taken the time to look at the business over the past 5 weeks to make some improvement changes, so please do try us again and let us know if we have acheived that!
Best regards
Lee
