We visit Whitby quite often and we usually go to the Quayside for Fish & Chips but we thought we'd give Gatsbys a go. Staff were great, decor good and clean. Food was rather hit and miss. They are not 'chippy chips'. The fish was absolutely swimming in vegetable oil. Not enjoyable

So during our week long stay in Whitby we popped in here, from the outside it looked ok. First of all the service was slow to be honest, they weren't exactly busy but it felt a long time getting served. The better half and our girls had panninis - one was ok (ham and cheese) the tuna one was a... More

My wife and I visited mid-morning. Enjoyed an excellent pot of tea and toasted tea cakes. Prompt service. All staff helpful and polite. Would like to visit again to try a more substantial meal.

Had cod and chips, had better had worse, friend had the soup they said it was vegetable but you couldn't say what vegetables were in it. Young man who served was pleasant enough and the place was clean. not much more I can say.

I was unfortunate enough to order lunch here a couple of weeks ago. Pie, garden peas and chips. The peas were cold and whoever had sloshed them onto the plate had failed to drain them so the pie pastry was wringing wet. The meat in the pie was grey and glutinous. Altogether a very nasy experience and will never return.... More

We visited Whitby on this weekend and rather than go to a pub thought it would be nice to eat with a harbour view. How I wished we had walked right past. On the menu was 'homemade steak pie with a puff pastry' NO!! It was a few bits of tasteless meat in the toughest pastry you could imagine. 'Served... More
