Best kippers I have ever eaten. We literally followed our nose, the smoke helped too, along the small street at the base of the steps up to the Abbey and found Fortunes Smokery. Several pairs of kippers were purchased, and consumed eagerly with the traditional bread and butter, heaven on a plate. Their smoked bacon is great too slapped between... More

Tiny little shop at the far end of the street leading up from the shopping area in Whitby. Don't expect big, all the house's and shops are tiny in this part of town. But, you don't need a big room to sell fantastic kippers. I bought two for £3.50, had them for breakfast with bread and butter, lovely!

What can say? They take herring, and smoke them in the small smokehouse, and sell them from the small shop attached to it down a Whitby backstreet. It's nothing grand, but if you like good quality kippers (as opposed to those wet orange things you get in supermarkets) then it's well worth a visit. If you are down wind of... More
