I went there to eat after a long journey, I was starving I ordered as I walked in. The timing was so good I was not expecting it to be done so quick. Really friendly staff , the young waitress that looked after me was named Georgia , she was so polite and professional. I will definitely be coming back... More

We last visited Ely about 15 years ago,and we were lucky enough to discover this proper fish & chip shop. So glad to say that it is still serving top quality fish & chips to this day,although that is no surprise of course. We dined inside,but for late October it was so mild that many people were enjoying doing it... More

We don't usually have chips locally (only on beach trips) but we came here at around 6pm due to being locked out of our house for a few hours and I can honestly say they were THE best fish and chips I have ever had!! The chips were fresh, just the right amount of crispiness and soft in the middle... More

I have purchased food from here a few times now. Excellent quality, and fresh. Great portion sizes. Convenient location and very friendly and helpful staff. They will also do smaller portions if you ask.

We were certainly not disappointed with our delicious scampi and chips today. Very helpful staff and, of course, great company for lunch. We look forward to our next visit. 😊

My partner and I eat here on a regular basis. We rate it almost as highly, as our favourite fish restuarant in Whitby. The fish is always moist, lovely crunchy Northern style batter- good mug of tea, quick service- what more could you want?

Takeaway or eat in, always well cooked and good value. Only downside is short opening hours, closed early evening.

We tried the Haddock and the Cod and preferred the cod. Not spectacular, but very good. The chips were excellent.
