Best fish n chips in UK.

This is the best place for fish n chips. Quality of fish is excellent and the chips are really nice. The gravy, mushy peas and curry are so tasty. Prices are very good as well. Give it a try. Mmmmmmmmm

We had the take away fish and chips, the mushy peas we're tasty. We were delighted with our meal and would recommend the Magpie to anyone. If you're going to the restaurant prepare to que.

A visit to Whitby isn't complete unless you have the best fish & chips on the East Coast! Great atmosphere & friendly service.

If you book you can bypass the queue which is here every day. The food is great, and the kitchen copes brilliantly with serving a lot of covers. Lovely old building, with harbour views. Good service and a real buzz. Good for families and couples wanting good food. They also have a fishmongers and kitchenware shop. Highly recommended.

Still as good as ever, very popular, with people queuing outside. It's best to book in advance. Large choice of different fish on the menu, cater well for different diets, offer griilled dishes as well as traditional fried options. Don't have to eat chips either, as there are alternatives potato options. Very friendly staff, excellent service, means happy customers

When we stay in Robin Hoods Bay we always eat at the Magpie every day - sometimes twice! The food is gorgeous and for us nowhere else locally compares!

Fish and chips cannot be beaten from here. So much choice from the boards you can see around the restaurant. Warning portions are large and regular is ENORMOUS. Having had a starter, i would recommend that, unless you have a monster appetite, a small haddock/cod and chips will suffice and then you can enjoy a pudding if you are still... More

This may be a little more expensive than your average fish and chip shop, but OMG it's not your average fish and chip so is well worth the extra pennies.
