We always call for the fish and chips when visiting Knaresborough. The portion size is very good and the fish excellent quality.

Excellent fish cooked to order (well done lightly battered haddock). Only downside was the drinks - no herbal tea on offer and only instant coffee. Otherwise, highly recommended.
