Consistently the best fish and chips ever and always has been. Whether you eat in or out the quality never varies. I have been using the establishment since before it became a fish restaurant. First crossed its door in 1965. The other items on the varied menu are also top quality

Visited the Magpie for the first time with my family on our recent visit to Whitby and I can safely say our experience was superb. The staff we encountered were very friendly and were great with our kids. I must say that the food was amazing great fish but what surprised me more than anything was the huge menu. You... More

We try not to miss out on a visit to the Magpie when staying with Whitby relatives and over many many years, we have never been disappointed. If we go in the Summer we hate being part of the inevitable queue up the restaurant's front steps but, last week, Whitby was almost deserted and yet the sea in the harbour... More

Great food. Lovely friendly staff and good service. We had the Fish and chips and Fish pie which were delicious. Good value for money. Portions are very generous so don't have much to eat before you go!!

Visited on Tuesday 16th December. We chose to get our lunch to take to sit on the pier as it was a lovely sunny day. Staff not as friendly as in the cafe but fish and chips ok, not cheap to eat from here but the quality is good.

At long last we have been able to try out The Magpie Fish restaurant in Whitby. We live quite close by and on the numerous visits we've had to Whitby over the years, have never wanted to wait in the long queues down the steps to get into the restaurant. But being winter, we got in and it lives up... More

Despite being fairly local & having been to Whitby on many occasions, this was a first visit to the Magpie. Main course of Roast Salmon was excellent, very enjoyable. Disappointed with my dessert though, I ordered the Banoffee Cheesecake & when it arrived it was an individual baked cheesecake with a few slices of banana at the side....not what I... More

If you are planning to eat at the Magpie Hotel all I can say is COME EARLY because the Q to the Magpie is normally at least two blocks long and the food it is the best ever Bon Appetite
