Not been for fish and chips for a long time, decided to go here as it's just round the corner, and picked up 3 fish & chips and some curry sauce, very friendly staff. The fish was not swimming in oil and tasted great

First time we've had fish and chips from here. Staff were lovely and really friendly. Very good sized portions and the food was very nice, especially the chips. Proper chips and not the thick chips many others serve nowadays. Will definitely be back.

We were on holiday in York, and staying close by at a fishing lake, I read reviews on TripAdvisor, so thought we would sample some fish and chips, we waited over half a hour for them cooked to order, the fish and chips were perfectly cooked, but the pattie (Yorkshire fishcake) was inedible, the potato was far too thick to cook all the way through.

This chippy is truly back on form after a dip a year or two ago. If you gave up on it then, it's time to give it another chance. Excellent fish and chips, and very friendly service.
