We love Whitby and almost everything about the place. The accommodation, the chippies, the harbour etc, etc, etc When we found the kippers just imagine our excitement... But boy oh boy what a miserable reception we got, the kippers were poor, the customer service was bad and we will not be calling again... My suggestion to others is: go to... More

Visited Whitby on several occasions but never seen Fortune's Kippers before. Tiny establishment with smokery and shop. Worth a visit for kippers, kipper pate and smoked bacon.

I am eating one of them now. Truely incredible flavour from a plump smoked herring. I live in London and made a special trip to Whitby for two things: the Whitby Magpie Cafe and the Forune's smokery. (The Church is OK as well of course!)

Whitbys last remaining Smokehouse. Only3 products for sale, their wonderful freshly smoked kippers, available in S,M and L sizes, wonderful kipper pate and the best smoked bacon I have ever tasted. The Smokehouse is next door to the shop.

Friendly service and a core product that you can see has been expertly prepared. Paid just £3.70 for a pair and they were beautifully smoked. Definitely worth a visit and get there well before 3pm which is the advertised close because when the day's offer has gone, they're gone!

Acknowledged as probably the best kippers in the UK. Been buying there for decades despite a 50 mile round trip! If it's kippers I crave then that's where I get them. So simple, place in a pan, cover with boiling water, leave for 3-4 minutes, remove, drain and enjoy. Real 'fast food'! Terry

Came here for kippers mid September and the place had nearly sold out by lunchtime. This is a must go to place in Whitby for kippers to take home and savoir. Big juicy plump and great with a slice of brown bread and butter. I am having mine tonight. Do go its well worth it.

Having followed the delightful smell of the smokehouse up the winding street we knew we were nearing fortunes. Super quality and amazing taste.

Do not leave Whitby without visiting here and taking home some tasty kippers. Their taste is unbelievable, great for a healthy start to the day!
