Everyone recommended we come here so visited for lunch. Absolutely lovely food. You pay that bit more to sit inside but it's well worth it.

No visit to Whitby is complete without a visit to the Magpie Café. There is no shortage of fish and chip restaurants in this town, but none come up the standard of the Magpie. This is borne out by the number of people who are prepared to queue outside during busy periods. You can of course, also book at table.... More

When traveling, I always try to find something to eat which is typical of the country or the area. If you are a foreign tourist and want to try "Fish n Chips" because that's what all English people eat all the time for every meal, then look no further. This is the NUMBER 1 F&C restaurant anywhere. Yes, you can... More

After reading previous reviews, we chose Magpies over the other restaurants and weren't disappointed. No queues and a good table upstairs overlooking the harbour. Very quick service by pleasant serving staff. Ordered the regular sized fish but small would have been more than sufficient at lunchtime. The toilets were very clean and contemporary. All in all, a very good experience... More

We use this place quite frequently particularly in the winter. On this occasion we went Sunday morning/lunch. Park at Sandsend and walk 45 mins into Whitby. Got there perfect time 11.15 so front of queue. I would definitely recommend getting there before 12 such is the popularity. Lots of choice on the seafood but we tend to go for cod/haddock... More

We used the takeaway service whilst on holiday and I cannot praise you enough on your gluten free fish & chips, they are absolutely gorgeous! Many thanks and keep up the great work.

We've always wanted to try the magpie but have been put off by the long queues. We took the opportunity on a quiet Tuesday afternoon and weren't disappointed. The waitress was lovely and made a note of my fish allergy! My husband had cod and chips which he said was delicious and I had afternoon tea. This included a sandwich,... More

Was looking on TripAdvisor and saw that Maggies was the place to have our fish n chips. We decided to eat in and take it all in. The place was heaving. Very popular. Managed to be seated in the upstairs section but was tucked up the corner away from everyone. The menu had loads of choice but as we're by... More
