Been here two or three times and have yet to come across more pleasant staff anywhere else. Happy to offer advice on things to do and places to eat in the evening. Food was also excellent! Would definitely recommend.

I've walked past this place so many times!!! What a shame! Their fish and chips have to be the best I've eaten in Scarborough. This will definitely be the place we go for fish and chips whenever we visit. Fantastically fresh, awesome food!!!

Visited on a day out in Scarborough because of good reviews. Had a deal of Fish & Chips, Mushy Peas & Bread & Butter for two. Fish was nice but I think the chips had been reheated as they were hard on the outside. We also had to wait a long time for the fish to be cooked & served.... More

I love, love, love this place for breakfast when in Scarborough. The food is fab, the prices are realistic, they do the tea as weak as I ask for, and Debbie and her girls are warm and welcoming. An absolute MUST for breakfast.

We called in for fish and chips with family on a Saturday afternoon. The cafe didn't look much from the outside, but we were really glad we went in. Staff were really friendly and welcoming. The fish and chips were really tasty and nice!

Friendly service and great fish and chips with a harbour view. Not a massive place but definitely worth a visit. Don't be put off by the look from the outside!!
