We stopped here on the off chance and luckily just grabbed a table as one became available. It was a very busy Saturday in York, Christmas markets were packed and every place in town was full. Despite the hectic, busy atmosphere the staff were friendly, calm, efficient and unflustered. We never felt rushed. This is a fish and chip restaurant... More

Our study abroad daughter's quest to find the best may have ended during our visit to this quaint and friendly place. The fish was beautifully done, thick fillets with a crisp, flavorful, and non greasy batter. The chips were also thick and crisp. And about those mushy peas....I could have eaten them and nothing else. Even my pea-hater husband tasted... More

Following all the great reviews on TA we visited Mr Chippy restaurant in York today and they were full but said we could take a seat outside and there should be a table in 10 mins. It was a crisp sunny day so we waited and we're so glad we did, table sorted quickly and order taken promptly. The fish... More

Wow! The food here is amazing! We were encouraged in by a wonderfully enthusiastic member of staff when looking for somewhere to lunch. We ordered 'the ultimate fish and chips' and can I confirm the dish lives up to its name! As an ex-chippy fryer and a British seaside lover I would have to say this is probably the best... More

Visited the carry out section as we were on a day trip to the Christmas markets and were short on time..Being a lover of fish and chips we were not disappointed. The lady serving was very helpful and friendly especially where my wheelchair bound sister was concerned. We only had to wait a minute as freshly cooked fish were coming... More

Beautiful fish and chips, we had a nice white wine and my husband had nice thick white bread with butter. The service was great. Only slight niggle is the red sauce was very cheap and tasted like vinegar, could not eat it. However that teaches me right as the food was so delicious you do not need sauce. If you... More

visited whilst in York, i had the plaice and chips, which tasted lovely. They offer cocktails and hot chocolates one of which my mum had with tia maria. The staff were very friendly, with excellent service and was able to order quickly with arriving in around ten-fifteen minutes even though it was a busy evening. Would highly recommend a visit...

We deliberated outside the restaurant whether to go in or not, when the door opened and Roy very politely invited us in. We are so glad we did. The fish and chips we ordered were excellent. Crisp batter and piping hot chips with mushy peas. Couldn't have asked for more. The ambience was very friendly and relaxing. We both had... More
