The only mistake I made coming to Mother Hubbard's was that I didn't do it years ago. I had cod chips and mushy peas and a pot of tea for under £12. The fish is so fresh and the batter golden and crispy. The peas are as good as any I have ever tasted all served by well trained and... More

This place served really good fish and chips and the best scampi I've ever tried. They do some lunchtime specials and in terms of prices locally it's competitively priced. The staff were friendly and service was good. Loved it!

Mother Hubbards is a traditional fish and chip restaurant, Which was really busy when we visited it. on entering the restaurant, a waitress finds you a table and settles you down, They give you plenty of time to select your meal, of which there is a decent selection if you don't want fish and chips. But for me it was... More

It's got a little more expensive recently, but it's always great food. You can get a decent portion of fish and chips with bread and butter and tea or coffee for around £8.

With only 1 exception we visit Ma Hubbards whenever we visit Scarborough. We took our grandchildren on Thursday and again were not disappointed, my 9 year old grandson wolfed down the childrens fish and chips. ( a very generous portion ) The service is always speedy, friendly and efficient. Fish is always cooked to perfection and very tasty. The restaurant... More

After looking at reviews on TA decided to visit. We were greeted by the friendly staff and were seated straight away. Our orders were taken I opted for the gluten free haddock and chips. While we waited we had a good view of the town who needs Eastenders when you have Scarborough town centre to look at. When the food... More

This was a true find. What a wonderful restaurant. We were made extremely welcome at a busy time and our children aged 2 and 4 ate their whole meals which is a rarity! Delicious light crispy batter on all the fish, and fresh and tasty chips. The prices are very reasonable for the food and the central setting and excellent... More

An all time favourite of mine is battered Scampi which very rarely appears on a menu. When I saw it on this menu I just had to have it. I was not disappointed. Large portions, delicious scampi, chips & mushy peas. A must for anyone visiting Scarborough & enjoys fish & chips.Service was excellent.
