Uncooked fish which was obviously cooked in old oil; due to all the black bits in my food. Two bites of it and it went in the bin! The building looks lovely! And in a fantastic position. But I would never return. Horrid.

I had Haddock and chip and the fish was awful. thick pudgy batter raw on the fish. The fish had a stale smell and didn't taste nice at all. The staff were attentive but will definitely never go back.

We both had Haddock and chips with mushy peas. We stood outside to eat them. It couldn't have been better. The fish was so tasty and fresh, melted in the mouth. Mushy peas and Chips equally good. Thank goodness I dont live in Scarborough I'd have a serious weight problem.

The fish comes unskinned! To me this is a lazy practise and makes the fish taste rank. It was also dripping in fat and mushy. If i'd of know before i ordered i'd of gone elsewhere!

Went there for lunch today, took back to the car to eat. The chips were reheated and rock hard. The fish still had skin on it and the batter had a weird taste to it. £5.60 per portion and most of it ended up in the bin as inedible! Avoid at all cost!

Had 5 days holiday in Scarborough and had to try the Fish n chips' whilst there. Lovely friendly lady greeted us into the restaurant and brought us our haddock and chips, tea, bread and butter within minutes of us sitting down.They were delicious, even though we opted for the 'senior special' the portions were more than adequate, and priced very...
