Description: A fabulous family friendly, award winning fish and chip cafe. Just voted Best Fish and Chip shop 2013. Either take away or eat in. With 80 covers there is plenty of room, coach parties welcome. We aim to provide the best fish and chips available from sustainable and local sources at a value price. Gluten free and veggie chip shop chips. Served with a smile. Our premises are not your usual fish and chip cafe and are a pleasurable and inspiring place to spend some time.

Hi Clive,
At last indeed - a good fish and chip shop can be a major attraction for visitors and locals and we aim to please both. Quality, value and service with a smile is what all the team are working towards and we are succeeding. The 2013 Excellence Award from Trip Advisor and Best Fish and Chip shop 2013, as voted by the readers of Malton & Pickering Mercury confirms that. Thank you for the comments and see you again very soon. Regards Tony

“Better than Bridlington!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

not a huge fan of fish and chips. i thought ide try the one local (5 miles away) fish cooked fresh but worth the wait,lovely chips and curry sauce.

lovely clean place,friendly staff.

i thought no one could beat one of the busy bees in Bridlington but scotts has.

the only very minor point is that with the special they only offer peas and not curry sauce instead.

Hello David,
Thanks for the great comments, 'better than Bridlington'. The team were delighted to read that comment. With regards to the special, the peas can be swapped for curry sauce, beans or gravy, so please ask next time you're in. Come back soon. Regards Tony

“Excellent standards”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Our 1st visit to this caffe (8/6/13) and the food tasted as good as it looked. The environment is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and the staff are pleasant and helpful. We would certainly eat there again. Recommend you give it a try"

Hi Beth,
Thanks for the review. Helmsley has many attractions and we hope to be one of them. The shop has been open for a few years, but has previously not really lived up to expectations. Since taking over in March this year, we are all working hard to change that and become a reason for people to visit or stop of in Helmsley. Thanks again. Tony
