Often seen away fans in the Rutland without a hint of trouble. Not sure why anyone would want to drink in the Imp anyway, other than it being close to the ground.

At one time you couldn't fit fish chips n peas on the plate, which look considerably smaller in the photo and the peas came in a separate dish! There's no denying it Steels ain't as good as one or two chippys in the same area. It's a shame but it's the truth, I used to regularly frequent it but nowadays nah, wide berth!

I'll delete the photo if it pains you too much to look at them.

One thing about eating anywhere is it's down to personal opinion on whether you like it or not. It really annoys me when you tell somebody you are going to eat somewhere and they say 'I wouldn't go there, when I went it was crap'.
'Well when I went it was good, hence I'm going back!'

Regarding away fans and the Imp. Perhaps they are missing out on some trade here. They have 2 other bars which are rarely used and have their own access door so they could serve both home and away fans without them really coming into contact.

In these times of hardship in the pub trade the extra customers that teams like Histon etc will bring may help them stay open!

Have always headed to Steels for the Jumbo when back in Meggies. Usually tank up on decent ale under the clock beforehand as there's only room for a few wee drams afterwards. Used to frequent my local chippy every Friday, the Chirpy Chippy in Bentley Street, who would fry the fillets I took up to him - superb. Whatever happened to the crass "fish and chip wars" of the 1990's when places were falling over themselves to sell God's fare for pennies? Remember going into one Grimsby hostelry whose names escapes me - but obviously sold real ale - where fish, chips and peas was available for about £1.50. Great food, but obviously unsustainable, and I assume a good number of chippies closed in the aftermath of it?


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

Quoted from Les Brechin


Scartho(e) is one of the nicer areas of Grimsby but I wouldn't go as far as to say it's posh.

Now if you'd said she lived down Humberston Avenue I would have been impressed.


Oi!! I live there and it's dead posh! Other people have speed bumps. we have patios


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

It's only Scartho if you live there.  To the rest of the English speaking world it's "Scaffa" as in Scaffa Baffs swimmin pool.  


Apparently my wife is loving me because I don’t really pay attention to what she is actually saying !!
