“Very Disappointing!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

After being recommended by a friend, we decided to visit the Royal Fisheries whilst in Whitby. We ordered two cod and chips which were served by a very pleasant waitress. A third of the batter on the fish was hard and unedible, as were half the chips, being soggy and having dark blemishes in them. When I complained and showed the waitress what I was forced to leave she was most apologetic, but this did not detract from the fact this was not good value at £9 per head.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Great Fish 'n' chips - disabled access good but access to tables more difficult when busy. Staff could not have been more helpful. Good food cooked to order and caters for all ages. Will be back!!

“Equal to Hadley's”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Excellent Fish 'n' Chips! Nice quite atmosphere in pedestrian precinct, good value for money especially in catering for the (sometimes) smaller apetite of "Seniors". Very good disabled access & assistance.
