We called in for a Friday night fish supper. The place has had a makeover since my last visit. The theme appeared to be "staff canteen". The large room is not broken up at all, meaning the acoustics are pretty dire. There are at least three large TV screens with advertisements for such choices as "gluten free batter", and a... More

Opens at 4pm on a Thursday and I was first in for a scrumptious takeaway of regular haddock and chips - massive portions - really fresh and tasty - very good value and excellent service.

I live in Hornsea and rate Whiteheads as the most consistent provider of quality fish and chips in the area. Never had a problem at this shop!

Having read that Whitehead's had been shortlisted for a national award this year, my coeliac husband and I felt that it must be worth a visit while we were holidaying in the East Riding of Yorkshire. We were not disappointed. We hadn't booked a table in advance but did not have to wait very long to be shown to a... More

Whiteheads clearly the best fish and chips in Hornsea. They have won awards for quality of their food. Recently extended their seating capacity in their restaurant so waiting time is down to a minimum.

Called in at lunchtime to visit the restaurant but it was full and we hadn't booked. Plan B was next door at the spotless takeaway outlet. We sat in the car with our fish and chips and what a superb meal! Beautiful white haddock and chips of the highest standard. Excellent.

I have been here twice in the last 2-3 months basis a recommendation. Both times were superb. Eating in the restaurant the service was perfect and the food even better. One of my friends even said "its the best haddock I have ever tasted"

Arrived without booking (which I would say is advisable on a Sunday lunch) and after a short wait were fitted in. So glad we waited, it was well worth it, the fish and chips were cooked perfectly. Good sized portions and lovely and hot - so tasty, big white flaked of fish and nice crisp batter - the best fish... More
