No frills place for good fish & chips. Take away option and basic restaurant. Don't expect anything fancy in terms of the restaurants and you won't be disapointed

Here for a light lunch, the scallops looked quite cheap at £1.65 for 6. So it seemed. Turned out in Wetherby, scallops meant deep fried slices of potatoes!!! Felt I was short-changed, but these fake scallops were quite a treat! Check out the photo. Lots of ppl ordered the fish and chips tho!

Wow
These guys know what to do.
Lovely fish, good size. Crispy batter. Nice big chips too with flavour.

Some chip shops have either nice fish but poor chips or vice versa, but not at Wetherby Whaler.
Lovely mushy peas too. Spot on.

Glad I live within walking distance!!

If you want a thick, flavourful fillet of fish in crisp batter with delicious chips - go to the original Wetherby Whaler in Wetherby. Thoroughly enjoyed my fish & chips with curry sauce on our visit at the weekend. My partner had salmon salad and was disappointed that they had no salad dressing/vinaigrette; they offered only salad cream or mayonnaise. (So one point down on score). Be warned fish with salad is not a diet option here, it comes with chips, ok you don't have to eat them, but they are delicious. Traditional surroundings in restaurant, food nicely served. They now have a lift to ease access for the oldies.

If you want to enjoy what may be the best fish & chips then you must visit Wetherby Whaler, Wetherby. Here you will be served promptly by very pleasant and helpful staff and the food is very good and excellent value for money. The Seniors menu of 3 courses for under £10 is especially good. Highly recommended.
The recent refurbishment has increased the seating area and introduced a customer elevator.
