Millers Fish & Chips
Millers has a great reputation and in 2016 was named best in the North-East in the National Fish & Chip Awards (and in the top 10 in the country). Run by Nick Miller and his dad David, it has been serving up tasty suppers for 51 years and recently underwent a complete refurbishment. It is now fully licensed, has table service and free wi-fi.
There’s a popular bistro night on Thursday, with special fish dishes cooked by the team including pan-fried trio of fish, and prawn and courgette linguini. Another popular innovation is gluten-free fish and chips, which attracts customers from York and beyond.
So what’s the secret behind Millers’ exceptional fish and chips? Choosing the ingredients carefully, says Nick, getting the frying temperature right, and ensuring the batter is consistently excellent. We can vouch for the crisp batter, moist fish, freshly fried chips and mushy peas – serve with a side of bread and butter and Yorkshire tea for the perfect lunch!
The service is good too, and the atmosphere happy, with friendly staff and smiley faces. The business has been in the family for years: it was Nick’s great-grandfather Joe who began things. Nick’s father David trained in a Michelin-starred restaurant and was a chef on luxury liner The QEII before joining the family business about 30 years ago.
And now with Nick involved – plus the 2016 award – the future looks bright for Millers.
