Value for money is lower simply because some local takeaways offer a slightly bigger portion for the price. But the food was delicious, hot and arrived on time.
We were invited to try the brand new dining experience at The Penny Bank on Scunthorpe High Street.

As it’s coming up to seaside season a few of you may be getting yourself to the beach at the weekends, so Just a short drive from Scunthorpe in the popular seaside town of Cleethorpe’s we visited STEEL’S fish and chips for a sit down fish supper.
Steel’s opened back in 1946. STEEL’S has gained a wide reputation based on it’s quality and quantity.
The place it’s self is a little dated with it’s decor, but I suppose it adds to the charm of it. The restaurant covers two floors and it’s quite a cosy fit. When I hear about people visiting Cleethorpe’s for Fish and Chips for a sit down rather than over the counter, STEEL’S is probably the one I hear of most, usually from the more mature age group and families.
The staff were very welcoming and polite with smiles on their faces even at 8pm on a Sunday night. We went for a medium haddock and chips each with a side of mushy pea’s, which included a pot of tea for two. The amount of chips piled onto the plate was a little overwhelming and there was no chance we were going to manage them all. The pea’s were sweet & tasty and the haddock was coated in a nice light batter and wasn’t hard or greasy. The fish tasted very freshly prepared and good quality and all the food was very hot, including the pot of tea. Probably the only complaint would be the seating booths were not the most comfortable and the air con smelt a little fusty.
Overall the quantity and quality of the food was good and it wasn’t over priced, it came up to just over £23.00 for the two of us. STEEL’S Fish
