Every time we travel to Whitby we make sure we pick up some kippers and they never disappoint, they are the best I have ever tasted. I have also tried the bacon and it is amazing, I highly recommend a visit!

Only bought a small pot of kipper pate, as they were about to close for the day. Hidden gem of a place for the kipper connoisseur.

We really look forward to buying kippers and smoked bacon when visiting Whitby. Their kippers are sold according to size. Both the kippers and bacon are very tasty.

I can’t imagine there are many places like this! Tucked away in the back streets of Whitby near the foot of the 199 steps to the Abbey. The smokehouse doesn’t look like it has changed for years, just like the counter. We bought a pair...More

These are good sized kippers, unlike the horrid sardine sized things in supermarkets. Well smoked and tasty. You can smell Fortunes a long way off and if they are currently smoking & the wind is in the right direction you can smell them across the...More

A friend at work used to live in Whitby and said you must try the kippers. A short walk from the bottom if the 199 steps is well worth we'll. if you are lucky enough to look into the smoke house it's fascinating. The kippers...More
