Extensive menu and relatively quick service considering how busy the restaurant was and the late hour we arrived. I can confidently say it is up there in the top 3 fish and chip meals I have ever had.....and I like the dish....although no one makes it quite like the Brits (Kiwi's come close). Recommended for good quality food at reasonable... More

We ate here 3 times during our short stay in Whitby. The menu was vast, the food was excellent along with the service. We enjoyed the food just wished we had longer so that we could have eaten more of the choices from their menu - EXCELLENT FOOD, STAFF, AND VENUE

Yes you may have to queue, but its worth it. Probably no other restaurant in the UK offers such a choice of fish. Always fresh, and superb. Prices are fair and specials for two or three course out of season. Bookings are taken after 6pm. They staff are 1st class and they are long term employees. Very pleasant and always... More

A trip to Whitby to eat at the Magpie on New Year's Day has become a bit of a tradition in our household and we have done it the last few years in all kinds of weather conditions. The staff are attentive, friendly and helpful and serve up probably the best fish and chips you can buy anywhere. There is... More

Huge portions. Very good value for money. My husband had the smoked salmon parcels for starter - they were huge (2 of them) and completely stuffed with crab. The cold fish taster main course which I had was beautiful. My husbands fish pie main would have fed 2 and was wonderful. Staff were very knowledgeable about the extensive menu and... More

What can I say. We booked a table for early evening on the 2nd January 2015 and so glad we did the place was heaving. To be honest it felt like a bank holiday weekend not just in there but in Whitby itself. As regulars in here we decided not to have fish and chips on this occasion. My husband... More

We ate here twice in 2 days, friendly service, down to earth and none pretentious. Great to see a gluten free option, the fish and chips were delicious, with decent tea, and even gluten free beer! Excellent, will return.
