“good & bad”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

My wife and I recently visited Whitby and chose this place to eat. After queuing for 10 minutes outside we were shown to a table for 2. We waited and waited and waited for our order to be taken but alas this was not to be. There were several groups and couples in after us and they were duly served while we waited and waited. The young girl clearing the tables was very busy but knew we were there as did the lady showing others to tables and the lady using the till. We sat there for 15 minutes without any acknowledgement then made our way out fed up and unfed to find another place where we would be served. We would have liked a meal there but alas the service we got abysmal.We won't be going in there again and wouldn't recommend it to any one else.

C & B fed up & unfed

“Great chippy, that's saying something in Whitby!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Great food for a reasonable price. We go to Whitby every year and always find ourselves back at this chippy! Also great that they do gluten free batter if you need them to!

“Worst fish and chips in Whitby”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

There are plenty of really nice fish and chip take aways in Whitby.....unfortunately this isn't one of them. The fish was 'sloppy' and some of the chips were hard. Admittedly it was out of season but the experience has put me of for life. Try Mr Chips/Hadleys/Silver Street/Royal Fisheries for great fishn' chips
