I am not from Grimsby/Cleethorpes so am objective as far as great fish and chips are concerned in the area.  As a family, we tried Steele's about 3 years ago. Good but not overly-impressed. The view was it was a bit old-fashioned and maybe living on its past glories.

We went to Ocean and have been going ever since to the restaurant and takeaway. All elements have been excellent every time.   Fish and chips (etc) cannot be better.

Steele's still the best in my humble opinion although I have to say that the Ocean fish bar does serve up a quality bit of fish.Marklew's is not what it was but generally I find takeaways are very much dependant on the day itself to determine the quality.What tastes fantastic one day could be average on the next - it's the luck of the draw

I am from Grimsby but to be honest the best fish and chips I've had were from Whitby.


Mr McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.

Quoted from trawldoor
My mate is in the fish game and his contact in Grimsby has told us to head for the Market Square in Cleethorpes. Where setting of at 8.30am by minibus for a jolly good day out. Like minded footie fans are more than welcome to met up with our mixed age group for a good drink and chat about the days when you could,nt get another Trawler in our respective Fish Dock`s. How sad that a once proud Fleet in Fleetwood, Grimsby, Hull, Lowesoft etc has had it`s heart ripped out due to bad foresight from the government in power at the time.
Anyway I used to stay at my Auntie`s in Scartho when I was little and thought it was quite posh am I right?


hope you enjoy your day,ive got fond memories of fleetwood,its were my nanna came from,she moved here to grimsby during the war,the market place is a good place to be,have to agree with a majority of posters on here with regards to steeles fish and chips going down hill,the ocean bar on the main street just off the market place is worth a look,there is plenty of pubs,have a good day trawldoor


Grimsby and proud!

Let's hope we can be welcoming to Fleetwood on their first visit. I hope the same is true of AFC Wimbledon when they come given what happened to their club

Quoted from Civvy at last


My experience not quite as bad but getting on that way.  Portions down and fish not as good.  I know of one local fish mercheant who complained that the fish he was served had been frozen.  After a big denial originally, the management accepted that he knew his stuff and the meal was then a freebie. Ernie B's is now my preferred choice


OK, I'm posting under an alternative log in as a once only. I post a lot on here but it is a footy board and I dont want to mix work and pleasure. I am the owner/manager of Steels. Maybe I can get you to ask the local fish merchant involved to contact me as far as I am aware this has never happened. If someone is purported to be me then I would prefer to know about it. Thanks for all the nice comments above and I will take on board the negative ones. There has been no change in the fish, size of portions etc for many many years. However if there is a perception that this is so, I will look into it.

Thank you, standing off soap box now. GTFCZAK, dont be late for work. This username will now be retired again, if anyone does genuinely wish to contact me, I can be emailed directly via our website. This is not a place for advertising but the site is easy to find via a search engine for those that wish to.

Back to the footy please
