We regularly visit Trenchers when we come through to Whitby. There is always a queue but it generally moves quickly. This isn't a problem and i always see it as a positive. The staff are friendly and helpful. And the food is always delicious. We've never had a bad meal. It is a little pricy for fish and chips, but... More

Very clean and well presented restaurant, knowledgable staff, superb food, and not too expensive. Their own recipe fish pie is amazing and the fried fish portions are generous and beautifully prepared. Batter is... More

This is a fancy fish and chip restaurant that sells a range of dishes. It is a large restaurant that has lovely decor. Our waitress was bubbly friendly and helpful. Food was very tasty. Toilet were very snazzy, having lots a little extras. It is the best one of the best fish and chips restaurants ever.

We visited this restaurant as part of a large adult family group. The food was nice enough but a bit more choice to that in the takeaway would have been nice. The toilets are lovely and clean

Trenches offers more than that. Ploughmans served with a poor quality soft bun. Cheese had seen better days. Service was good

It's really not worth queuing for the Magpie when you can get this standard here. It was flawless food. We ate in at the restaurant in February, and had fish and chips. The restaurant is licensed for those who like a drink! Our waitress was lovely, making a fuss of the children (who loved the attention) despite it being a... More
