Overpriced & Bad customer service.

Booked at table for a large booking for a special occasion. When we arrived, we were advised we couldn't sit together so we were on 2 separate tables, bear in mind this booking was made and reserved 2 weeks previous, and having advise the lady on the phone on the amount of people, should we not... read more

Hungry? This eatery fits the bill right off M1/Jnct 33. Large fish and chips restaurant adopting all the American moves getting a few things right and one or two wrong. Firstly, they need to offer customers the Internet. Food is plentiful. Taste is reasonably good. Service is quick but regimented. Clearly it's a hit and we would return but there's... More

We look forward to eating at Whitb'ys after shopping it's ideal. The service as always been good as well as the food . All I can say is we speak as we find having eaten here several times and no complaints.If service or food is not up to standard then complaints should be made at the time

We've visited again this evening - my first visit after my last disappointing trip some months ago. Its not changed! Admittedly we were late visitors (but I don't see this as an excuse surely they should be the same quality throughout the service? Unless of course they're rubbish all the time?) Our order was taken and there were only 6... More

We quite like Whitby's as the fish is very god but things ain't what they used to be. The first thing to notice as one gets out of the car is the slightly rancid smell of cooking, not the previous bracing smell of a good chippie. On entering the restaurant there was a marked delay before being attended to and... More

Very disappointing service from staff. They got order wrong twice. We ordered one starter and they tried to serve mains first. Then when we got our mains, mushy peas and bread and butter were missing so had to wait again. Staff didn't care that the order was wrong. The food was beautiful, just need more attentive staff and courtesy.

Don't compare fish & chips until you've eaten here. The fish is large, pure white, succulent, boneless and skinless. The chips are home made , not frozen. All meals are cooked to order. If you are in a hurry, use the takeaway. Meals are packed in boxes, not wrapped in paper. Have already recommended to family and friends.

Someone in a Sheffield pub suggested that we tried this place. Big, licensed, good service. Fish was particularly tasty. Chips were nice and dry and portion size just right

Tried for first time with a friend. Food was great but the chips portion was the smallest I have ever seen in a fish and chip restaurant. I ordered brwad with it after it came. When I mentioned this to the waitress at the end that it was nice but stingey with the chops she didn't seem at all bothered.... More
