We always visit this chip shop restaurant everytime we visit York (which is quite a lot as it's a lovely place) because the food is always nice and the staff are friendly. I think there has been a change in management or staff lately, but I had an unexpected surprise on my bill that I didn't notice until later. There... More

Seaside and Yorkshire the two best places for fish and chips and this place in York does not disappoint with its crisp batter, quality fish and perfect peas and chips. Lashings of salt + vinegar a must.

I didn't have any fish as I just wanted a light meal (something that is hard to find in the north!) so I opted for the chips with mushy peas. The chips were perfectly cooked and the addition of mushy peas not only made it tastier, it felt like I was being healthy as there was green on the plate!... More

We went to Mr Chippy on Good Friday on our visit to York and really enjoyed what we received. It was one of the best fish and chips that we have ever had, hand on heart. My wife had a cod and chips and I had the haddock and as always with our food conquests there was a bit of... More

Well Sparki72....what can I say? We have let you down on this occasion and apologise unreservedly, the dish was not prepared properly and fell short of not only your expectations but ours also. We have looked into and in fairness the "Chefs Special" on that evening should have been taken off in my absence. A junior chef prepared it without... More

We were a group of ten friends having a brilliant time in York. We arrived at the restaurant near closing time but they made us very welcome and agreed to stay open and serve us food. We ordered variations of fish, chips and peas accompanied by lovely bread and different types of butter. Food was absolutely delicious! Great music was... More

We came here for lunch and the three of us were more than filled up by a large haddock and a large chips which came to £8.98 which I thought was excellent value for money. My only gripe would be that the haddock was a little oily, but otherwise everything else was well above par.

ShaneChef, Company Chef Manager at Mr Chippy Restaurant, responded to this review

Hi there and thank you for the review. Not sure what happened with the excess oil on the haddock to be honest? We allow our fish to rest for 40-50 seconds before plating or boxing up so that any residual cooking fat can drain off the fish but it would seem we may have sent one too early? Apologies for...

Visited on a Saturday afternoon and really enjoyed our food. However, the service was not great. My meal was forgotten, after a quick prompt my meal arrived 10 mins after the rest of my family.
