Whilst taking a stroll along Scarborough seafront we impulsively decided to have lunch at the Fish Pan restaurant and very pleased we did. Upon entering the premises we were greeted by a very pleasant young lady who showed us to our table - the bonus being it was a window table with beautiful views over Scarborough Bay looking towards Clayton....

We often visit here as part of the Armed Forces Day events in June each year, and are always given good service. The food is of a decent standard, and the location is great to pick up fish and chips and then walk along the scenic Foreshore. Would recommend.

I visited the takeaway part of the restaurant and was horrified and embarrassed at the way the gentleman serving was speaking to the people in front of me. One example was when the customer asked if they had any better forks than the wooden ones on the counter, he quipped....I'll go get you my garden shovel if that's any better....but... More

The take away was just closing but the staff cooked us the finest fish chips and peas I've had in years. I must say sorry because the shop was shutting but was still open half an hour due to the amount of people following us in. Simply lovely.
