Yorkshire chippie “frying high” after making it to top of world’s largest travel site

A North Yorkshire fish & chips restaurant’s glowing customer comments have helped it pick up a top award from the world’s largest travel review website.

Scotts of Helmsley has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor which recognise businesses that consistently earn top ratings from tourists.

With a total of 169 reviews, the chippie has been successfully ranked as one of the top three restaurants in popular market town. More than 80 per cent of the reviewers have “recommended” Scotts, with more than 110 foodies describing it as “excellent”.

Earlier this year Scotts, which boasts a fully-licensed 75-cover restaurant, takeout counter and function room, was presented with the National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) Fish and Chip Quality Award – putting them in the top 2.5 per cent of chippies in the country.

Scotts managing director Tony Webster said:

“With this latest accolade you can say that Scotts really is ‘frying’ high!

“We are naturally delighted to have received this certificate from TripAdvisor and thank all our customers who taken the time and trouble to write about us.

“This is a great achievement for us as only the top ten per cent of business on TripAdvisor are eligible to receive this award.

“We have a great team at Scotts and this is a tribute to their hard work and effort since I took over the business just over a year ago.”

  • TripAdvisor is one of the most popular and largest travel communities in the world, with more than 32 million members and over 100 million reviews and opinions of hotels, restaurants, attractions and other travel-related businesses.
