We called at Fortune's Smokehouse for Smoked Haddock, Kippers & Bacon, last Items before we left for home in Halifax, believe me you can forget all the supermarket smoked ?? fish etc. fresh from the Smokehouse is best. No Comparison.

Been today to collect some kippers for my family been coming here since I was young and happy to see fortune kippers still workings, the smell when walking up to the place is the best thing ever. The kippers are reasonable price and they also do smoked salmon and bacon too. Thanks

Anyone who appreciates a good kipper will love a visit to this historic smokehouse in Whitby. Having just eaten mine for a Sunday breakfast, I can vouch for the succulent texture and great taste. Excellent old business still trading in a time honoured fashion.

Would never visit Whitby and not come home without a bag full of kippers for friends and family. The ideal breakfast.

You can smell Fortunes well before you find it. Walking from the bottom of the 199 steps at the top of Church Street, follow your nose towards the sea. My husband grew up in Whitby so whenever we come back to Whitby to see relatives we make the journey up the cobblestone road to get kippers for breakfast. Family run... More

Stumbled across Fortune's Kippers as we made our way to the breakwater on the south side of Whitby harbour and have thanked our good luck on each subsequent visit to Whitby. Fortune's Kippers is now a destination and not a diversion. The smoked product, smoke house and smoky shop are almost an example of a past way of working. However,... More

What ever I do when I visit Whitby, getting some kippers from Fortunes in a must! These are without doubt some of the nest kippers I've had. It you're lucky, the smoke room will be open and you can see inside. Open for limited hours (from 1.30pm at this time of year) and they close when they've sold out. They... More

A small unassuming building, with a strong aroma. Kippers to die for, and the smoked salmon, do not be infused with all these fancy Dan brands from the capital, get Fortunes. This is the best smoked salmon I have tasted I. 40 years. Buy, buy, buy!
