Friar tucks became Heworth Plaice a few years ago when it changed hands. Tried it when it first opened under the new name, we were sadly disappointed at that time, took back under cooked fish and sausage, receiving a rude and surly response from the person in charge on that day. Tried again a year later same result so we... More

Decent quality, average prices but awful portion sizes. Don't go here if you are actually hungry, but do visit if you just fancy the taste of fish and chips.

Freshly cooked to order beautiful tender and flakey cod. Best Fish and Chips in York by a long way and probably best in the North of England. Very reasonably priced too. I'll be going out of my way to go back here.

Absolutely best fish and chips I've had in my life! The batter was so different to what I've had before it didn't taste fatty and it was so crispy and delicious. The chips were also great and crispy! They do a good deal of small fish and chips for £3.65 which is enough to fill you. I'd recommend driving there... More

This is a fab chippy serving the best fish and chips whilst being served by some of the funniest and friendliest people. I love having to wait as some of the ladies working here are just great to talk to.

Frier Tucks has been in Heworth Road for years, and has had a varied past. It went through a period of being very mediocre in the 80's and early 90's, despite having stiffer competition from the excellent Burnholme Fisheries in those days. In more recent years, it has really turned around. Excellent quality fish and chips, nearly always freshly cooked... More
