We often go to this fish restaurant, the food is always cooked to order, the service is excellent, to day was no exception. we had to queue on arrival but a great atmosphere in the waiting area. most of the clientele were a bit older but with obviously very good taste. great meal

Traveling home along the A1237 on Monday lunchtime we decided to call in for a spot of lunch. We arrived not long after midday to a fairly quiet restaurant. However, this rapidly changed with the arrival of groups of mainly more mature adults. So if you are a trendy young thing who is not yet aware that age happens this... More

We were staying at the local Premier Inn and fancied a 'chippy tea' which we don't have often.. Now, I am vegetarian, but more than happy with a pie or similar, like you can get in just about any chip shop anywhere. Surprisingly, there were 3 veggie options, albeit the ubiquitous lasagne, and vegetable bakes. Great - broccoli and cauli... More

Great food, nice big portions and pensioner specials available. the menu is out of the 1980's with its choice of food which is amusing. Food is served quickly and if you want to fill your belly you are in the right place for a reasonable price. Just makes sure you enjoy fish and chips. I have demolished the giant whaler... More

Following a 'not so good' visit to the old Tritons, now Scotts, last month we decided to have our weekly lunch at the Wetherby Whaler. Very impressed. Spotlessly clean, warm and pleasant restaurant - tables are close together and small so we needed to juggle dishes and pots somewhat but managed OK. The pensioner meal cost just £1 more than...

Just had a lovely birthday party lunch here today for my Mothers 90th birthday. Nothing was too much trouble! The staff were extremely attentive to our needs. We had a lovely alcove end of the restaurant, making it quite private, where the staff very kindly put up some decorations that we had taken in earlier in the day. The fish... More

Had an excellent senior citizen meal. The fish was cooked beautifully and a very fresh salad was substituted instead of chips.All three courses were very good value at a very reasonable price. The atmosphere was very calm with no loud music and no children running round.The waitress was excellent and nothing was too much trouble.A very good restaurant.
