Just wondered if anyone has any views on the fish and chips from Papa's on the Pier? I've heard mixed reviews? I don't often get back to get any good fish and chips, so usually head to Beckett's or Steele's. I don't want to waste a rare trip back on somewhere if it's going to be a bit crap!

Never been to Papa's myself, but I had a takeout from Beckett's the other week and it wasn't great. The oil didn't smell right to me and my coat stank when I left, even though I had only needed to wait a few minutes.

Steeles is always a known quantity and it's my preference for a sit down meal.

The last time I went to a home game my wife and her friend went to Papa;s,

She said it was very good and big portions.

BUT

That was a year ago.

Seb  Ring has been recently and he thought they were good although he did not try the mushy peas.

What's that one down St. Peter's Ave? Seawave is it?
We were going to go to Papa's but they had to close because their heating wasn't working. (I remember Pier 39 having industrial size storage heaters one winter back in the 80's.Have they not fixed it yet? 😂 😂
Anyway we went to the forementioned one instead and it was very nice. I couldn't believe how big it was! I've never ever been in there before and I'm in my sixties now!

Went to Papas midweek and thought they were a notch above the usual greasy slop you get most places.
Pleasant surroundings, a nice view and decent prices.
Very pleased to be fair and won't hesitate to try their other branches.

I'd echo what GYinScuntland said. Been in Papa's twice now. Fish and chips good. The room was cold first time (winter before last). Service was good in a conventional, modern business sense (people were genuinely keen to provide good service, but it somehow lacks that warmth of the traditional service you get in Steele's).

Seeing Cleethorpes from that vantage point on the pier is an enjoyable change.

Ocean in the Avenue is also very good quality - only had a takeaway though.

As for our Swedish brethren, Mr Jolley needs to add Mushy Pea Appreciation to their cultural orientation programme.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Haven't sampled Papa's yet myself as again I always go back to what I know and love!

But hoping to try Papa's soon and also Docks beers!

The muvva in law went to Papa's recently and commented on the good batter, which is a good sign in my book, nothing worse than soggy, spongey batter on your fish

Not been to Papas, have read awful reviews but I'll reserve judgement unless or until I've been

Likely to be a long time tho' and it would have to be something very special to get me away from Steeles or the Notts


Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake
