I stopped by for fish n chips and was waiting too long. It seems that they don't cook enough fish to keep up. While i waited everyone that ordered had to wait for fish to be cooked. The guy cooking only cooked four fish at a time and the wait was far too long, theyed never cope in my local... More

We are certainly spoilt with many fish & chip shops on our doorstep but I have to say this gem of a shop serves the best fish. Go for a large cod, middle piece, you will not be disappointed! It's literally the size of a mini whale......

Thank you very much for your kind words. We've spent a lot of time with our fish supplier finding fish we are happy with and trying to make sure we maintain a steady supply. Cod and Haddock both present their challenges, as i am sure you have seen in the papers. It's nice to know it's noticed. Hope to see... More

Think it's probably unfair to review a fish & chip shop without having tried the fish but the queue was too long (I imagine this is a good sign?) so we settled for 2 chip butties & a sml carton of mild curry sauce. Served quickly by very polite staff & the place was very clean. Sadly the chip butty... More

Well, very sorry you did not enjoy the meal as much as we would hope you would. Hopefully we will see you next time and you will enjoy it much more. Try the Spicy Curry Sauce, that is the one most of us like the best. Really sorry about the bun, that's not good. Please mention that next time you... More

Having a walk around Pickering, we decided to follow the signs to the Fish & Chip shop. It was busy but the staff promptly took my order & although a couple of others with larger orders were in front of me I was served without any real delay. Such friendly staff.

Enjoyed haddock and chips from this small but well served chip shop. Young staff but they certainly knew how to cook fish and chips. They were hot and fresh. The fish was tasty and the chips crisp. Will visit again. Staff really friendly

It's a bit unfair to call this a chip shop because there is a good range of things to buy. I come here fairly often - but then it is my local chippy. The portions are generous and the fish is great with really crispy batter. I'm going to have to try the chicken parmo one of these days -... More

Thanks very much for the kind words. You really should try the Parmo, we 'inherited' them as a local dish when we took over the shop - they are very popular in the north East, apparently. We certainly like them a lot and they make a great alternative meal. And, of course, always consider the hand battered onion rings, they... More

Arrived in the area for a caravanning holiday. After a long drive and setting up the caravan we usually opt for some sort of takeaway on our first night. Well signposted on the main road the place is easy to find however as has been said in other reviews parking is a nightmare. This is quite a small chippy the... More

We are very sorry for this bad experience. The truth is we are busy training new staff at the moment and have also been battling staff illness that has left us short handed on some shifts.
