Well organized, efficient business, even when they are very busy you don't have to wait long for your order. Fish and chips are excellent, and yes I have eaten fish and chips in Whitby!

Really helpful staff, excellent food and great service. We placed a large order of 28 portions of food. A mixture of sausage& chips, fish & chips, nuggets & chips and vege burger & chips. All were cooked perfectly and were ready when we collected them.

You can ring and order in advance. Lovely, freshly-cooked fish and chips. Limited opening hours, but well worth a visit.
