Best fish & chips around. I don't eat in the restaurant much but often do a 15 mile trip there & back just for the take away. Well worth the travel. Well done keep it up

We went for tea today. this is not the first visit. if it was, there wouldn't be another. the fish is fantastic but the indifference of the staff wasn't. One member of staff was busy and doing her job. not so the others. I don't like complaining but the waiting was ridiculous. My partner mentioned the wait and once we... More

The fish in this restaurant is fresh and succulent and the chips are proper old fashioned chunky chips being able to enjoy them with a beer and glass of wine is a bonus, will definitely be paying them a visit when back in Rotherham.

Eating in can be a tad expensive (buts the fact that the restaurant always seems full would suggest that quality is worth paying for) but the takeaway is comparable to many...and they are far better than...

We have visited many times and the fish and chips are the best ones we have tried including Wetherby whaler. The standard is consistent and the staff are welcoming and friendly. We would not hesitate to recommend Whitby's.

The food is lovely and all cooked fresh. They also cater for coeliacs which means we can go with family and friends.
