Pleasant place for a family get-together

Have visited Whitby's a number of times and have always been satisfied. The location is good, easy access and parking, and the place itself is pleasant though the canned music can be too loud. The waitresses are polite and helpful and service is quick though there can be a slight delay while the... read more

We had a takeaway for four people for just over £20 which was really good value but Whitby's is also a dine in restaurant - and very popular. If you want a good quick meal on the run then this is the place to go for fish and chips.

Would our second visit be as good as the first? Yes. Food, drinks, service all excellent and we couldn't fault it - to be petty the bread could have been a little slimmer, but that's minor. At around £15 a person (no starter or dessert, but with a glass of wine each and coffee) it is good value especially as... More

For the freshest, whitest fish, Whitby's can't be beaten. My husband loves the batter and I sometimes have the gluten-free batter which is thin, light and crispy but lately, I have been choosing the fish poached in lemon juice - absolutely delicious. The place is always full - testament to it's quality and the service is always first rate.

Visited on a Saturday, mid afternoon, in a group of 9. Enough variety of food to keep everyone happy - steak pie got the thumbs up, gluten free batter available and really good fish and chips for everyone else. Service was excellent, food arrived all together, no mix ups. Plenty of room for car parking...will definitely visit again.

Four of us visited on a Tuesday lunch time and were immediately seated in a booth. We all had fish and chips and found them to be excellent. There was no sign of the grease that is sometimes found with fish and chips and everything was very tasty. During our time there a lady on another table began choking, the... More
