We decided to have a late lunch today to escape the rain. Before ordering we needed to clean our hands after spending time in the nearby amusement arcade. Thus the toilet facilities were in good order (one cubicle) and clean. We seated ourselves overlooking the harbour upstairs and ordered tea for two along with two jacket potatoes with ham and...

Lunchtime. When we arrived there was a party of 4 waiting for their meals, but no other customers. The waiter was friendly, took our order and promptly returned with bread & butter and a pot of tea. It then took 20 minutes (we timed it) before the meals arrived. The waiter apologised for the delay but offered no explanation -... More

A late lunchtime on a grey Friday immensely improved by some of the best cod and chips we've ever had, at a very reasonable price. A special well done to the young men serving who give the lie to the stereotype - they were chatty, quick and helpful and lovely. One gripe...those tiny sachets of sauce are a pig to... More

We visit Whitby quite often and we usually go to the Quayside for Fish & Chips but we thought we'd give Gatsbys a go. Staff were great, decor good and clean. Food was rather hit and miss. They are not 'chippy chips'. The fish was absolutely swimming in vegetable oil. Not enjoyable

So during our week long stay in Whitby we popped in here, from the outside it looked ok. First of all the service was slow to be honest, they weren't exactly busy but it felt a long time getting served. The better half and our girls had panninis - one was ok (ham and cheese) the tuna one was a... More

My wife and I visited mid-morning. Enjoyed an excellent pot of tea and toasted tea cakes. Prompt service. All staff helpful and polite. Would like to visit again to try a more substantial meal.
