Renowned for incredible fish and chips all across York as well as further afield, Harpers Bistro Shipton is the newest addition to the Harpers Fish & Chips’ empire. Located in the Wilson Building, this spot serves up fantastic European and British seafood classics in a fun and friendly environment that is suitable for all the family. Whether you opt for everyone’s favourite dish of fish and chips with mushy peas, bread and butter washed down with some hot tea; wholetail scampi with a fresh salad or some fisherman’s pie in a cheese and parsley sauce topped with mash potato and melted cheese – you certainly won’t go hungry at Harpers! Advance booking is recommended.
They do some of the best fish and chips ever! Well cooked and excellent value for money. The staff are always friendly and the service is good. The seating area is very light, clean and comfortable. We first sampled their excellent fish and chips about 16 years ago when they had the fish shop in Wetwang, East Yorkshire and so were delighted when they opened this restaurant near York. We were not disappointed. The quality is still the same in the restaurant. A true family firm who take pride in what they do.
First visit to Harpers and impressed with the quality of food, service and facilities. Waitress couldn’t have been more helpful. Main dishes centred in fish but plenty of alternatives including pizza, burgers or steak which I’ll be sampling on my next visit.
