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!

Loved the smell and the sight of the kippers smoking. I would have liked to have bought some but the wife wouldn’t have let them in the car. Will sneak back one day

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
