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

This is one of the worst meals we have ever had. We order 2 courses and we had to wait 45 mins for our first course to arrive. The place is a bit of a shambles. One of the chefs constantly was running up and down the stairs beside us which was really annoying. Other people had already left and... More

Frozen chips, scampi, fish 'bits'. Fish is from Iceland but it's the store. Fish pie was 2 layers of sliced (slightly hard)potatoes and minimum filling of fish. Staff apologetic regarding our truthful comments.

Having read other reviews on here I have to admit I've never had anything other than 'tea' items from here, scones, cakes, tea, coffee etc so can't comment on other menu choices but as a cafe fora mid morning pick me up it really hits the spot. A great scone and pot of tea with great service for relatively low... More

Having taken my niece and nephew and their 3 children to Whitby after a day on the railway, I had promised them the best fish and chips in the UK. When I arrived I had no idea were to take them when I passed the Gatsbys, there was no room down stairs so was asked to go upstairs. The room... More

Im from Northern Ireland and have to agree with those that are commenting truthfully about Gatsbys food being unedible. I once had chips/burger/mushy peas from there. the chips were hard, the burger had grease freely flowing from inside it and the mushy peas were, well looked they had been cooked in water from the river esk.. the customer service is...
