Default Chippies

So I usually get mine from teh place at JBR, but went to 'The Rock'n'Sole Plaice' today.

Not only does it have the worst name ever it was utterly dreadful.

No cod. No bread rolls (despite being spitting distance from pork'n'shop). Soggy batter. Shit curry sauce.

Be warned.

Absolutely no idea!

I know that feeling. I give the Magpie in Whitby a wide berth because of who runs it (clue in the name)...and the queues and the prices, to be fair.

we complained the last time we were there, then they updated their FB page and I had a go at them there as well. Typical case of thinking they can let Asians run it and it be a success. Wrong.

I took the missus there and we loved it, my gran is from Scarborough and I spent many a happy time at Whitby, love the place.

Also took her to the Dracula museum and she asked if Dracula was real. I kid you not.

Next to Johnny Rockets (which is utter pigfood) there's a thai place, that now doubles up as a chip shop - but they only do hammour.

RUBBISH.

Yep, no cod so I asked if he had anything similar 'we do but it's very thin fish'. So that's NOT similar then.

I asked if it was owned by an English man and he said yes, then gave me his business card and he was called Mohammed shoobadedy Dooobadedy or suchlike.

Useless.

To be fair the only time the one at JBR does good food is when the Scottish lad is there.

Seriously- she asked if Dracula was real- oh I love it!

Why is there a Dracula museum in Scarborough- its not like he was from Scarborough is it? lol
