Love this place been going for years. I'm not a fish and chip person but they do an amazing steak pie and chips and my husband says the Yorkshire special haddock is gorgeous. Highly recommend

Service and atmosphere were fantastic, always guaranteed a laugh when pooping in for a beer. Never stayed here overnight but have been told it's great. Food is good and not overpriced. They have an outdoor sitting area which is nice especially in the warmer weather

You wouldn't think finding something suitable for a vegetarian would be that difficult in a tourist destination, but for some reason, if you don't eat fish, and real vegetarians don't, it was a bit of an effort. Many of the fish and chip places cook in lard so you can't even just have chips. Finally found the Quayside and though... More

The food here is brilliant, portion sizes were perfect. We had to wait to get a table but it wasn't long and it wasn't over crowded in the restaurant so you can hold a decent conversation. Would definitely recommend this place to eat

Whitby was a marvellous revelation over New Year. The quayside area is colourful and busy. Loads to eating places, bars, pubs, takeaways and arcades. Traditional fish and chip takeaways are everywhere and serve tasty products. A great place for families or couples. Very nice xmas decorations make the place look lovely.

We were very surprised how busy the all of Whitby was today. Car parks heaving, restaurants with large queues outside.We decided to treat ourselves to eat inside the restaurant section. Short wait outside then shown a table by a very smart young man who gave us the menus to read. My wife decided to go for the cod,chips, mushy peas... More

Called in yesterday whilst out in Whitby for the afternoon, a queue had formed outside but looked to be moving so we decided to join it. A member of staff soon spoke to us and told us our wait would not be a long one and he was right! Shown to our table and although the restaurant was extremely busy,... More

Got here early yesterday (just before midday), so didn't have to queue, as the kids are impossible if they have to queue. Seated and order taken really quickly, and drinks cane efficiently followed closely behind by the food - which was excellent. Staff were really friendly and efficient - will certainly be going back here.

Thank Mark G
