Fish and chips are my favourite meal, I have enjoyed them all over the world, but the meal my wife and I were served here were awful. I had hoped Scarborough as a proud fishing port would have offered better!! However The Harry Ramsden franchise...More

Harry Ramsden is synonymous with fish & chips and it seems a world brand, and why not, provided you've got the product to match the expectations created by the brand. Harry Ramsden in Scarborough does not meet my expectations, the fish was a little dry...More

Slow service, portions not great, prices too high, staff looking like summer needs to end. Don't be fooled by the name!

The food in the restaurant is expensive and nice but small. The takeaway was ok priced and large portions. But this is the cheeky thing. The meals are sent in a lift to the restaurant and they charge about £5 extra for fish and chips!

I am absolutely gutted that we came here today, avoid at all costs. We travelled across to Scarborough for a couple of nights and was so looking forward to fish & chips. We decided on Harry Ramsdens, after all we are talking world class....or so...More
