BRILLIANT FISH AND CHIPS.

Decided on an impromptu visit to Whitby for the day. By 5.00p.m. the three of us started getting cold and rather hungry. As we were winding our way back to the Abbey car park, we passed several very "famous" fish & chip restaurants. We stopped at the Robertsons Restaurant were the "Special" at... read more

After a short wait, we were seated for a table of four. The seating is a little cramped in places, but not too much of a problem except when needing the loo! We'd noticed outside there was a special, but no details of it inside so had to ask. We all had the special of fish, chips, bread/butter and a... More

We popped over to Whitby on a February Sunday for fish and chips. Typical East coast weather. 2 Degrees C, raining and 30 Mph winds. Bitterly cold We wandered around for a while and decided that joining the queue for the two more famous chippies in town was a recipe for pneumonia and, most likely, disappointment so we wandered across...

We got chips to takeaway and eat on one of the jetties in the sun, which is minutes away. We came here twice as it was the only chippy in Whitby we saw that advertised that they fried their food in vegetable oil (we're vegan) - no beef dripping. The latter seems to be standard in other establishments, veggies beware.... More

We go to Whitby every year and never miss our visit to Robertsons. Usually have the senior menu as it is a generous portion with bread and butter and tea at around £6.00. Never been disappointed , always friendly staff, clean with good food. Will be our first stop on our June holiday. Others close by much more expensive. Why... More

I'm a vegetarian, so a bit limited for choice when it comes to chips in Whitby. I've always appreciated that Robertson's advertises that it fries in vegetable oil. Other chippies in town look nicer on the outside but this one is my only option. Having said that, it's a good option. The restaurant itself is decorated nicely, although in a... More

Great little fish and chip shop! Stands up well to some of the more well known fish restaurants in Whitby! They put aside an area for people with dogs to sit. Good, fresh tasty fish and chips!

While working in Whitby myself and a colleague visited Robertsons and we were overwhelmed by the quality of the food. Going to be working in Whitby for a while so we'll certainly be returning to Robertsons!
