Just eaten here and have to say wow! Dave and the team were fantastic, and the food was amazing. Can easily say the best fish and chips ever, and that’s saying something! We ate in the restaurant at 4:30pm and now have this as our favourite fish and chips spot!!! A++++++
We nearly used the takeaway side as that’s the door we entered through, but the friendly staff pointed out that the restaurant side was available too. Having been shown to a great table in the clean well presented restaurant we enjoyed a selection of fish items from the menu along with copious Yorkshire tea. We left thoroughly satisfied, and very happy with the value for money too. Definitely one to get back to .M R
An alternative to a pub lunch. The food was of a very high standard and the staff tom and linda were excellent. Friendly and helpful with smiles on their faces. Will certainly be going again.anthony m
From start to finish our experience was lovely , the food was amazing and the three young gentlemen were smiling and had polite conversation throughout our visit. Not somewhere you would think to go on the way home from York outlet but a lot better than having to wait for a seat in a resturant there!!!lizzie19750
We love holiday Fish & Chips and therefore have experienced many through the country. Scotts comes out top. Excellent food. I was concerned as I need milk free food for my little boy. Allergies are catered for! Enjoyed a thoroughly fantastic meal. Excellent service and staff.Mummsey C
We pulled off the main road to use the services even though I’m not a fan of most services and spotted this Fish & Chip restaurant at the far side. Having almost used the fast food franchise on the same site I’m glad we spotted this business and avoided the McD!

We, grand parents, an adult son and his two girls aged 13 & 8, were staying two nights at the Premier Inn at the same service centre where this eatery is located.
We were not aware that this was a restaurant, but initially thought it was just a take away, so we missed out on going here the first night, which was a shame as when we did go we found it was just amazing.
In one of the brochures we had picked up in York there were vouchers for two meals for the price of one which made it extremely reasonable. We showed the reception lady the vouchers when we first arrived and even so at no time during the evening did we feel that we were getting less attention, either in service or in the quality of the food provided.
Initially we waited briefly while a table was cleared, cleaned down and reset for us. The menus were handed out promptly and with drinks in hand we were left for a while to decide what we would eat. I had chicken strips done in bread crumbs (there was a huge number of strips), very tender, with chips and salad. My husband chose steak pie, new potatoes, peas and gravy which he was overjoyed with – the best pie meal he’d had in the UK. All this cost only 15 GBP.
We had intended to have a dessert as well but sadly did not have the capacity. The menu was extensive and as you can see was not just fish meals. Our son did have a fish meal, it was large and lovely; he has a great appetite but also could not face dessert. I would suggest that they need to somehow make themselves more visible to the public so that people are aware they are there.Sherril E
Popped by this chip shop when visiting the area. The girl serving was really welcoming and friendly and the food was great. Perfect portion size and not greasy at all. Will come back for sure!davehall88
My wife and I and our 7 yr old son stopped off here whilst looking for something to eat whilst staying nearby. What a great find. Fish and chips cooked fresh. My wife and I had Haddock and chips whilst our son had cod bites and chips. He loved his cod bites and all three of us enjoyed the food whilst sitting outside in the evening sun. Give McDonalds next door a rest and try these great fish and chips.
Coming back from the coast & wanted a cup of tea; went into the restaurant looked at the menu and wow! A whole bunch of “Gluten Free” options, so a delight for those like my wife with Coeliacs disease. We ended up having with a full meal. Tom & Dave were really cheerful and couldn’t have been more helpful; such a change from the usual attitude of staff in these roadside cafe’s.
The food was excellent – simple but well cooked and served hot on warm plates.
Worth a visit even if you are not just passing. Better than the McDonalds next door.
We just moved to Bilbrough and decided to go here after spending the entire day shifting boxes. Really friendly service and the food was great. Can’t ask for anything more!Dan A
Stopped here on our way back from holidaying the last week of August. We were travelling with two young children and having car problems so in a terrible mood.
We sat down and were made very welcome which instantly lifted our moods. The staff were very attentive the food was excellent.
The external decor gave me doubt about going in but the internal decor is totally different and very relaxing, I really liked the magazines on offer for customers to read while waiting for food.
I’d highly recommend visiting Scotts and if we are ever in the area again we definitely will.1Bubbles32
We have passed by many times but never stopped, but today we decided to give them a try and we were very pleased we did. The food and the service was excellent and we will certainly call again.
Thanks to all involved!janseabie
We had our wedding breakfast at Scotts. The staff were excellent, attending to our guests every need. The food was brilliant and the tables were dressed with tablecloths, flowers etc.
Their attention to detail made our wedding day so special. Thank you guysVicky K
We recently stayed at the Premiere Inn right next to Scott’s Fish and Chips and decided to pop in for dinner after being at Flamingo Land for the day.
We went into the takeaway side first and were preparing to sit down at the metal tables when my daughter asked to use the loo. We went through some doors into a massive restaurant. What a surprise! I absolutely loved the decor! It was so fresh and sea themed but not at all cheesy. The colour scheme was lovely and really helped the relaxing atmosphere.
We got a table and ordered our meal and drinks, asked for crayons for the children and waited for our food to arrive.
I ordered scampi and chips, my husband had fish and chips and the children both had fish fingers. All of the food was freshly cooked, tasty and the plates looked good when they arrived.
The dinning area and toilets were immaculate.
We had a very nice family meal here and would recommend to locals and visitors alike. If we ever find ourselves in that neck of the wood again we’ll be going back for sure.Kdlovescake
I only live up the road from Scotts but hadn’t been because it just looks like a motorway service station (which it is next to). However they advertise gluten free fish and chips which are still a bit of a rarity so we went on a whim last night. Not only did they have gluten free batter, but there was bread, vinegar and tartare sauce. I didn’t enquire about curry sauce – will do so next time. When it came the portion was enormous, the batter light and crispy and the fish fresh and moist. I really enjoyed it. Somehow I managed to ram in pudding – what was clearly a home made pavlova (gluten free – the waiter advised without prompting of their selection). My other half had the chocolate fudge cake – he didn’t need the gluten free aspect but apparently it was, good knowledge for next time as it looked amazing.
Service was good, it was quiet inside (wet Thursday night in early September, not surprising). We’ll be going again.amuk2015
thanks again for a lovely meal and a good dining experience. Tyler did us proud as usual serving us with a big smile and plenty of friendly chat. The manager also came across to say hello and we were introduced to the new supervisor. All in all a good experience thanks .Liz and Ken
Visited purely by chance on the way to York as didn’t want to stop at “usual suspect” services at previous exit. Was worth the slightly round about trip across the motorway as it was on other side to which we were travelling. Had the steak pie which was excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. Would recommend to anyone and will use again next time I’m passing.
Driven past this restaurant at the side of the A64 between York and Leeds many, many times and never been in. Nearly didn’t bother – as you drive in past the motel and McDonalds I wondered if I was heading for “motorway service station food”. Could not have been more wrong. The restaurant was being decorated and should look great when finished. The staff were very friendly and efficient. However the main point of the visit, the food was exceptional. A huge pot of tea. A generous portion of Haddock & Chips, peas, tartar sauce, bread and butter. The fish was as good as you will find anywhere. Total cost including tea £11 each. Left happy and very full. Will definitely be back.
Another lovely meal at Scotts, lots of decorating work going on but the food and service still excellent, the 2 of us had the steak pie and lasagne , no room for dessert this time, we will be back again another day for afternoon tea, well done to the staff, all very cheerful and friendly,
