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.

We always pop in to Scott's when we are passing by, it's worth a detour and has never let us down. Fish and chips are lovely, good size portions too. Everyone there is friendly and you're always made welcome. I would definitely recommend.

Hello and than you for the review,
All you say encompasses what we strive to deliver. Top quality, good size portions & value for money, all served with big smiles and great service.
Not sure where we are heading when you pass by, but we will shortly be opening another Scotts near York, which may work for you?
Thanks again and see you soon.
Regards
Tony

Great food with specials on, be prepared for a wait if busy. Not tried restaurant though. I had whitebait in breadcrumbs one night very tasty and excellent value

Hello Pete,
Thank you for the review, much appreciated.
'Beautiful fish' - couldn't agree more. We buy prime Icelandic fish from sustainable fishing waters and all orders cooked fresh to order.
The whitebait are really popular in both our restaurant and takeaway.
We generally don't have queues, apart from peak times, but a queue is a sign of a very good chippie and worth the wait.
Thank again and come back soon.
Regards
Tony

We visit regularly and are never disappointed! They also have Heinz tomato ketchup, which for me is an absolute must :-).

Hello and thank for the review,
The key with any business is consistency and this is what we are very focused on.
Whatever day you visit, whichever staff are on duty, the same quality and service should be experienced by customers.
So delighted to hear you are regulars.
You have to have Heinz ketchup and real chip shop vinegar, no question.
Thanks again and see you soon.
Regards
Tony

Saw this place on the internet so thought we must pay it a visit as it has won so many awards! Visited on Wednesday 9 July 2014 and it was everything it said it was! Beautiful fresh fish and chips! Rachael was looking after us and she was fantastic with her excellent customer service skills! We will definitely go back for more! Andrea and Rich Moore.

Used Scotts of Helmsley on two occasions whilst staying in the area to watch the Tour de France.
Food and service was superb and would recommend anyone to give it a try. The staff and service were great, especially Dann who sorted out a a table at short notice for my wife and I.
Keep up the good work.

Hi Peter and thank you for the review,
What a weekend with the Tour de France and Helmsley was a great choice as a base. Little traffic and easy access to York and Harrogate. Also plenty to do, search visit Helmsley for more info.
We even had Le Chateau de Helmsley on worldwide TV via helicopter, fantastic.
We're delighted you enjoyed your visits to Scotts.
All the staff work hard to ensure great service, but well done Dan for standing out.
Hope you visit Helmsley again for next years Tour de Yorkshire - 3 day cycling event being planned.

Tony
