When it opened, sometime ago, we always thought it wouldn't be up to much as it was on the busy A64 road to and from Leeds and Scaborough etc. We decided to try it, oh about 2 or 3 years ago, and was completely wrong in our opinions. We often go late afternoon and get the senior citizen deal but... More

Over the last few years I have regularly visited Thompsons with my family and I can not say one bad word about this fantastic fish and chip restaurant. I've never been a big eater and I left about half a plate of food and without hesitation they asked me if anything was wrong and when I told them I wasn't... More

Visited this restaurant this evening with my family, great, good quality customer service! Friendly and lovely people. The food was amazing. I would highly recommended the cod and prawn fish cakes. Ideal place for people to stop and have a lovely meal.

I've lived in York for about three years now and explored the nearby coastal towns and have never found a nicer fish and chips than Thompsons fish Restaurant. I can definitely say that I'll be using having this for my Friday night take-aways from now on.

We've been meaning to call in for months and we are now very glad we did. Very nice welcome and quick in taking our order. Good that there are other items on the menu than just fish and chips. Meal came promptly and large portions they were. Good selection of deserts but too full to partake. Staff were very nice... More

Visited Thompson's Fish Restaurant for a early evening meal. The food was fantastic, the menu caters for all diners with a wide variety of meals, not just their excellent Fish & Chips. The portions are very generous. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and the restaurant is has a lovely nautical theme throughout. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.... More
