Every time we visit here for a takeaway we are reminded why we keep going back - friendly and efficient service, reasonable prices, generous portions and hot freshly cooked food. Can not fault this chip shop - a firm favourite.

I'd go again because the food was good. The staff in the main were very good . However the person who served us was a little inattentive. Probably because they were busy. Get more staff on !

Visited for a second time - just over a year since first visit. Restaurant not as crowded but the meal was just as greasy as I remember it the first time. I don't think we will be going again although it was ok. Just not worth the cost. We have had better fish and chips from the local takeaways.

Don't like to criticise as we really enjoy Whitby's. Service good chips and peas excellent and drinks reasonably priced BUT Since our previous visits when our comments were that the batter on the fish was crispy, not soggy or fatty, on our visit to day (and previous visit to the Sheffield restaurant), have to say that this most important part...

We went to Whitbys to celebrate my mother in laws 60th birthday at the request if my 4 year daughter (she seems to associate Nanna's birthday with fish and chips for some reason). The menu is pretty good with a few specials as well and its particularly good in that you can get your fish just how you like it,... More
