Literally the best fish tea I've had in my life and I'm Scottish, so I've had a fair few! Huge portions of delicious chips and succulent, quality fish - practically steamed within addictively crisp batter. Wonderful friendly service, we went twice in two days 😑

Went to the Lifeboat with a group of mates whilst on a weekend away to Scarborough. I had haddock, chips, curry sauce and mushy peas and it was absolutely delicious. So good in fact, we went back to the next day! Highly recommended

Very nice food at reasonable prices with generous portions. Very friendly young waitress who seemed to really like children and made a lot of making sure my 12 year old son was happy. The place is spotlessly clean.

Found by chance with handy car park next to it. Arrived 10 mins before closing (take away) and were still looked after very well. Fish & chips, fish cake, nuggets - all really good.
