Can honestly say have never tasted better chips... More

I have had a few fish & chips in England. They were too oily and lack of flavour. But Gabbys chippy is just right for me. The portion size is huge. Chips there are nice and crispy and fluffy inside. They have recently changed the frying oil to rapeseed oil, which is a good thing. It is alot healthier than... More

I have recently moved to Bridlington and Gabby is our closest Fish and Chip shop. I ordered 2 regular fish and chips. A small fish and chips and a sausage and chips to feed my wife and I and 2 children. What I received would have fed 8 of us, probably more. Interestingly they also fry in rapeseed oil. So... More

We stay in Scarborough a couple of times each year and always make a special journey to this lovely fish n chips shop. Perfectly fried chips and a great menu. We love the curry here too and even bought a box of the Irish Curry to take home for my son a couple of years ago. Keep up the good... More

Looking at some of the reviews on here it's almost laughable. This is a chip shop not a restaurant. They offer Fantastic value for money not foie gras. There is a lot of thought put into what is offered. The menu often being tweaked and added too. Also I believe the chips will now be veggie friendly cooked in rapeseed... More

Great fish and chips in the heart of old town. Freshly Made to order and of excellent quality with very generous portion sizes makes this a very popular place. Very friendly staff and a good selection of foods on the menu.

First of all, none of the reviews can prepare you for how much food you actually get. A small haddock with chips and a side is at least twice as much as you get elsewhere, and at only £4.50, it's much cheaper too. Scraps are offered, as are "extra fish bits" making it a HUGE portion. Chips are cooked in... More

Description
TAKE AWAY ONLY - NO SEATING AS OF LATE OCTOBER 2016 WE ARE CURRENTLY THE ONLY FISH AND CHIP SHOP IN BRIDLINGTON COOKING IN RAPESEED OIL, NO MORE BEEF DRIPPING - NO MORE SATURATES USED, WE ARE TRYING OUR BEST TO GIVE PEOPLE A BETTER, HEALTHIER OPTION WHEN IT COMES TO TAKE AWAY FOOD. Oldest established fish and chip take away shop in Bridlington, Richard has owned Gabbys since 2001 and is proud of how over the years has gone from strength to strength. We have all the usual chip shop food from cod, haddock, chips to sausages and fish cakes, we also have the slightly less common battered black pudding, corned beef fritters and onion rings, If you like curry you may be surprised to discover we do 4 different types -chip shop, Chinese, Irish and Vegetable! We also have 2 types of Gravy -chip shop and vegetable! We have a huge range of choice starting at just 30p. There is a specials board in the chippy where you'll find our new ideas to try - our newest addition which is extremely popular is Italiano Chips - chips smothered in cheese and topped with our secret recipe Italian sauce! Overall we try our best to keep the portions large, quality high and prices rock bottom!
