We both had fish and chips which were good, but not excellent. The service was good and the restaurant clean.

Having spent £23 on 3 cod, 2 large chips and 2 sides to take out and serve a family of three. I was disappointed in what our 'local' chippy served us. Usually the quality of meals and service are pretty good, but we caught this all on an off day. Fish that was not to its best, overcooked and in... More

Scotts is a lovely "up market chippie" in the picturesque market town of helmsley. Take away or dine in available. Also a small external terrace at premises which are attractive and spotlessly clean. Owner/Staff welcoming, efficient and friendly. Set price lunch including drink and bread and butter is great value im this location. Quality fresh fish. Very enjoyable lunch.

I visited Helmsley and became extremely peckish, I noticed that Scotts was open so I decided to give it a try. It was very busy resulting in receiving the food after about 20 minute wait, however I did not mind as I understood the chaos. I received my chips and gravy noticing the gravy was a bit lumpy, I just... More

JaneTony13, Owner at Scotts of Helmsley, responded to this review

Hello, Disappointed by your comments and somewhat confusing. 20 minutes wait for chips and gravy is unlikely and we can't accept your comments. You don't mention whether you were takeaway or restaurant, I suspect takeaway and all food is freshly cooked, especially at busy times. I notice this is your first ever review and wonder why you didn't say something... More

Recently diagnosed woyh coeliac disease, dining out is difficult most of the time. Scotts made it easy getting a nice portion of fish and chips without any hassel at all. No inflated prices, no sorry excuses just good service and great food. Thanks Scotts!

Anthony, Great comment, thank you. Gluten free fish n chips available everyday in bot Helmsley and Bilbrough, York, using separate pan and utensils. You may have seen we have Coeliac Society accreditation, making us one of only a dozen or so shops to be officially approved. Spread the word. Thanks again Regards Tony More

we rented a house nearby for a week in May and wanted a takeaway one evening. Scotts has good reviews so we wandered down and ordered haddock and chips. Excellent food and good prices. It was all cooked fresh, so we had to wait, but we don't mind that. Recommended.

Popped in here as I'd heard that the fish and chips where great. You can either sit in or takeaway. Obviously sitting in is more expensive. We chose to sit in and both ordered the special deal. Pretty much that is small fish and chips, peas, bread and butter and a pot of tea for about a tenner each. We... More

Hello, Thanks for the review and delighted you enjoyed your visit. The Cap'n Scott special is a 5oz fish, small but enough for most appetites, with chips and mushy peas. Plus free chips top up if needed. Hope to see you back soon. Regards Tony More

Travelled from Hartlepool and once again I was not disappointed, the fish was extremely thick and came very hot. Can't fault the service as they were very helpful throughout our meal. Will be looking forward to returning very soon!

Hey Jake, Thanks for the great comments. Not far to come from the 'pools' and you could easily become a regular? I hear you're partial to a battered sausage, so maybe try a couple of those next time? Spread the word and come back soon. Regards Tony More

A fabulous family friendly, award winning fish and chip cafe. Just voted Best Fish and Chip shop 2013. Either take away or eat in. With 80 covers there is plenty of room, coach parties welcome. We aim to provide the best fish and chips available from sustainable and local sources at a value price. Gluten free and veggie chip shop chips. Served with a smile. Our premises are not your usual fish and chip cafe and are a pleasurable and inspiring place to spend some time.
