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.

We just visited Fortunes whilst on holiday here in Whitby. I love smoked food and was pleased to see the shed at the back of the shop smoking away happily. The smoked kipper pate is wonderful, my daughter loves the smoked salmon, and i'm really looking forward to kippers for Sunday breakfast tomorrow. I'll be stocking up before we set... More

We recently returned to Whitby and immediately set off to stock up with kippers from Fortune's. Not only did we buy kippers but bought their smoked salmon and pate all of which are great. We opted for the larger kippers which are a meal in themselves, and taste fantastic.

Up the winding street which winds round the base of the cliff below the ruins of Whitby abbey is Fortune's kippers. The shop and smoking shed next door probably haven't changed in the last century, or so it looks. They don't only sell their own kippers, but smoked salmon and pates. You do have to check the opening times, 9... More
