It was raining, we were hungry and cold, we spotted Mr Chippy and ducked inside quickly. It was a great find. The smell of fresh fish and chips cooked in dripping immediately increased our hunger pangs. Really friendly and attentive staff too. The cod and haddock were fantastic in a light crispy batter with crispy chips (rather than the soggy... More

Whilst in York for a weeks holiday we were having a walk around town to decide where to eat and once we looked at this menu we decided to give it a try. The gentleman who greeted us was lovely and welcoming and the food was beautiful, I ordered the all inclusive fish and chips and my husband ordered the... More

We popped into restaurant when visiting York with my little boy and from the moment we walked in all the staff were lovely,extremely caring and made an extra effort with my son. The food was very good and although pricey I didn't mind at all as in the past we have paid a lot for fish and chips for it... More

Four of our family ate here on a Tuesday evening. Very quiet in the restaurant. Menu simple but had everything you would expect from a fish and chip shop. Not cheap but this is York after all. The fish, chips and homemade mushy peas were priced at £11 but they were completely delicious. Wine and beers average prices. Good service... More

Great restaurant with fantastic fish and chips. We were really impressed with the food and the menu but also so grateful for the friendliness of the staff. One member of our group has a mobility scooter and we were able, with the help of the staff, to bring the scooter in out of the rain while we ate our meal.... More

I have been eating fish and chips for nearly seventy years and I can honestly say this is the best fried fish I have ever tasted. The 'batter' was incredibly light and really crispy, and the cod was cooked to perfection. I don't know how they do it, although I think the beef dripping plays a part, but it's spoiled... More

We had a ten minute wait for a table, but after eating I know why. Absolutely beautiful homemade chips which is better than frozen any day!! We each had different dishes and all we nicely presented and portion sizes were perfect, not too much which can be the case with some chippys. Definitely worth the visit if in York.
